GARY BOOHER certified reviewer June 03, 2017
A class act! The music and singing is exquisite, the choreography is captivating, the dancing sizzles, the instrumentalists are phenomenal, and the background black and white photography is stunning. All 24 popular song standards are performed deliciously by a talented and charming cast for a night of entertaining musical dance theater at its best. Absolutely the best musical revue I have ever seen at the Hollywood Fringe (and I am very fussy about musicals). Not to miss!... full review

What a wonderful show. The music and dancing were top notch. The costumes - oh, the costumes! - they were beautiful. The singers all had great, powerful voices and filled their songs with emotion - from the bittersweet, to the heartbreaking, to the comedic - they took the audience on a tour of Paris. The dancers always told a compelling story with their terrific choreography. And I would be amiss to not mention the band - wonderful musicians. And at 10 bucks a ticket, this is by far one of the best deals of the Fringe.... full review

Although The Show's The Thing, of course, The Venue is a major added attraction. Visiting the small studio soundstage (with a large greenscreen) that's home to the Mount Saint Mary's film program is a precedent-setting treat for Fringe---and the show's worth the trek, too! Two dozen French (or not) songs with no wasted connective tissue is easy to take, but the real treat is the dynamic choreography (by Orlando Alexander, also a dancer) and the projected backing of breath-taking black-and-white Paris photos! Singer Alanna Vicente is a standout (statuesque AND a trombonist!) and so are dancers Christopher Curry and Anton Garsola. ... full review

The band was outstanding, singers and dancers are very talented and joy to watch and listen to. Everyone appeared to having the time of their lives.
