Loserville

Loserville

★★★☆☆ Energetic:
There is sufficient speed and energy to Allegro’s Loserville at the Church Hill to make for a satisfactory time, despite what can only be seen as the most unpromising source material.

Oliver!

✭✭✭✩✩ Less is more:
Big and bold, Southern Light Opera’s production of Oliver! is consistently entertaining but does not always convince.

Review – Copacabana

Review – Copacabana

★★★☆☆  Passionate:

The music and the passion are right in place in Allegro’s bright production of Copacabana at the Church Hill Theatre until Saturday. But while the fashion is frothy – and the dresses are, on occasion, “cut down to there” – it doesn’t go as far in that direction as it might.
