EDGAR PABLOS certified reviewer June 09, 2019
First of all let me say I am not a fan of musical theater, but I really enjoyed this original musical comedy. The cast is wonderful and come from the world of opera. I found the music catchy and the choreography sexy and funny. The direction of each of the 11 cast members made the world of the Wild West come alive. It was a fun evening and the audience really responded to the energy of the cast— they made it look fun. Highly recommend!... full review

A fabulously funny one act old west operetta in the style of Gilbert & Sullivan. Joyous and silly with a biting lyrical wit, Gunfight merges the musical complexity of light opera (including singers with gorgeous voices) with the tone and narrative sensibility of Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles. The performers all have legit opera voices and the composer/librettist pulls off the extremely difficult trick of writing beautiful music which is also very humorous. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an hour's whimsical respite from all the doom and gloom. ... full review

A fun romp of silly with the creative and musical sophistication to keep it from being frivolous. Like Gilbert and Sullivan where the craft of writing is the true star of the show, I found myself wanting to see the score and read the libretto to catch it all. Would love to hear this with live instruments. This was a fun world to hang around and the actors and stage direction executed the story beautifully!... full review
