“I suppose it was at the moment when Friday night’s Popejoy Hall audience gave a standing ovation to the cast of the touring company of MY FAIR LADY that I awoke from the dream. I dreamt I was in a Broadway theater watching a re-imagined production of this venerable musical. What a terrific show, with fresh interpretations of story, music, dancing, costumes, sets & lighting.”
-Albuquerque Journal

“The touring production of MY FAIR LADY follows tradition
with beautiful sets, gorgeous costumes, a chorus with a tight sound and a strong cast. Two of the leads, Aurora Florence (Eliza) and Daniel Cardenas (Freddy), are fresh out of college. Based on performance alone, they seem more fit for Broadway, with Florence’s clear, clean voice and Cardenas’ romantic tenor voice.”

-Fresno Bee

• North American Tour •
• Fall 2008 – Spring 2009 •

“The joint was jumpin’ last night at the Strand Theatre, with a loud, bold, brassy staging of AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’, the Fats Waller revue, on its 30th anniversary tour. “American Idol” season 2 winner Ruben Studdard stomped and crooned on the renovated stage.”
– Boston Globe

“AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ sparkles so brightly and so vividly that you would think you had just seen a full-blown musical.”
-Albuquerque Journal

“ The Strand Theatre kicked off its spring season with the Tony Award-winning musical AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ last night, the first of a three-night engagement, and good luck to anyone hoping to live up to that standard.”
-Boston Herald

• North American Tour •
• Fall 2008 – Spring 2009 •
• International Tour •

“The creative team have conjured up quite a few moments to enjoy. The production values are high, the sets and props are rich in colour and entertainment.”
– Toronto Star

“The stagecraft that makes the roadster fly in CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG is pretty close to magical”
– The Sun Sentinel

“A lush, inventive fairy tale that will dazzle audiences”
– Variety

• North American Tour •
• Fall 2006 – Spring 2007 •
• International Tour •

“The principal performers are uniformly excellent, as are the projections, the scenic design, the lighting and overall production vitality.”
– Dayton Daily News, 2/07

“This was a magnificent production that the audience rewarded with an unquestioned and spontaneous standing ‘O’.”
– The Daily Gazette Schenectady, NY, 11/06

“The rock musical by Elton John and Tim Rice reverberates with a restless African beat and intense, soaring vocals. A kaleidoscope of brilliant lighting effects sets the stage on fire while an ensemble of frenetic dancers fan the flames.”
– Grand Rapids Press, 9/06

• North American Tour •
• Summer 2002 – Spring 2005 •
• Performed in over 150 cities •

“…a young, vocally proficient cast, a terrific Engineer and a truly striking new design concept. This looks like a big profit center for Big League and presenters.”
– Variety, Chris Jones 12/02

“Employing computerized effects and
high-tech video imaging, the huge, clear and three dimensional appearing projected helicopter far exceeds the impact of the heavy, laughably overhyped, truncated contraption seen in the original Broadway production. Lemsky’s extraordinarily fine production miraculously prevailed.”

– TalkinBroadway.com, 11/03

“Miss Saigon fills the eye and melts the heart”
– Edmonton Sun, 7/03

• Japanese Tour •
• Summer 2004 •
• North American Tour •
• Fall 2004 – Spring 2006 •

“It is difficult to conceive of any production of 42nd STREET being more professional, fun or dazzling than the one currently on tour.”
– Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, William Kerns

“42nd STREET dazzles audiences”
– Springfield News-Leader, Larry T. Collins

• North American Tour •
• Summer 2005 – Spring 2006 •

“The spectacle, making its North American tour debut here, is an exuberant 15-number show that doesn’t falter while bridging the categories of classical, blues, jazz, rock n roll, and techno-pop music. BLAST stands, blows, pounds, marches, and whirls with panache. It sent what seemed to be a full house into repeated bursts of cheering and applause. The thrill of seeing sheer virtuosity in a different kind of art form. It is entertainment of a high order.”
– Boston Globe, Bruce McCabe

“BLAST ultimately leaves its audience
begging for more.”

– Post-Dispatch (Saint Louis), Kevin C. Johnson

• North American Tour •
• Fall 2001 – Spring 2004 •

“I might have to turn in my union card, but THE MUSIC MAN that opened here last night is infinitely better than the one that premiered on Broadway in 2000. It’s better staged, better sung, better acted and comparably danced. It is certainly better housed in Boston; the multiple sets that make up River City, Iowa, fit the Colonial Theatre like a glove.”
– Boston Globe, Ed Siegel, 5/2/2003

“Fresh MUSIC MAN Still Scams with Style. It must be said that show [the national touring production of THE MUSIC MAN] is first rate. Not only does is sparkle with a youthful and talented cast – whose big voices, distinctive characterizations and splendid dancing are ideally suited to this re-envisioned but unquestionably old-fashioned musical – but its richly layered scenery and sumptuous costumes are top-drawer.”
Chicago Sun-Times, Hedy Weiss

• Las Vegas – Summer 2000 •
• Atlantic City – Summer 2000 •
• North American Tour •
• Fall 2000 – Spring 2002 •

“Broadway-bright, full of vivid and appealing young performers…High voltage energy onstage.”
– Cleveland Plain Dealer, Marianne Evett

“I was a fan of the movie and its killer soundtrack…But I love the high-energy musical even more. From the moment the cast took the multi-colored stage to the strains of ‘Footloose,’ I was mesmerized.”
– The Chronicle-Telegram, Steve Brown
