My overall impression

“Sin” was delightful! The dark and seedy setting of Three of Clubs is perfect for the cabaret style show and lends that right amount of atmosphere. As usual, the Devil is up to her usual tricks – this time manipulating Devlin to secure the soul of Faith or lose his own to her dark desires. The singing talent, especially the women, is so strong. Saudia Yasmein is brilliant as “Santana” with the vocal skill to bring out all the highlights of Scott Claus’ fantastic score. Sarah Kennedy as “Faith” is so much more than your run-of-the-mill ingenue. Rich Brunner and Christopher Robert Smith are solid as well though I have to tip my hat to the ladies. Just stellar. A couple of songs earlier on could benefit from some more melodic variation but every character gets their “song” to really shine. A really fun evening of song and sin – GO SEE IT!!
