This coming of age saga is a lesson for all of us to grow into ourselves no matter how others perceive us or try to get us to change. Derdriu Ring masterfully handles the multiple roles without a single hick-up.

Amélie The Musical @ Mercury Theatre Company




Through August 7, 2021

Roy Berko

AMELIE is the type of musical that some will find charming, others, like myself, will find it a lesser musical.  The show gets a very creditable production at Mercury Theatre.

With a little bit of work on the technical side of things this could be a delightful summer theater outing. Hopefully, as the production moves forward it will evolve. I would also suggest reading the synopsis of the plot by googling Amélia The Musical and clicking on the Wikipedia offering.

Amelie has a winning quality that leaves you smiling, even if during the middle of the show you're not exactly sure what you're smiling at.

Come experience Shakespeare as it was meant to be seen (in the open air complete with bugs, bats and frogs). This production is a great way to introduce first time attendees of the Bard’s plays. Once they have experienced this live they will find themselves coming back over and over again.

BKLYN The Musical @ Porthouse Theatre





July 8 - 24, 2021
(330) 672-3884

Roy Berko

BROOKLYN THE MUSICAL is not a show for everyone.  The story is convoluted and the music not memorable. In spite of these flaws, the Porthouse production is good enough to make the trip out to the beautiful setting a worthwhile ride.

Kerry Clawson

"Brooklyn the Musical" is a fast-paced fairy tale, set on a street corner, that features powerful singing by a small but mighty-sounding cast at Porthouse Theatre.

Mark Horning

While some will rave at this show as they did on opening night others will walk away a bit confused as to what all the fuss is about. If I would grade the show I would give it a strong B-. It is for the most part entertaining but not as good as it could be.

Chris Howey

This show doesn't wear its emotions on its sleeve, it wraps itself in drippy feelings like an oversized and excessively embroidered caftan.
