The Reviews Are In

“This is definitely a must-see!” reports Bev Sykes of the Davis Enterprise, as performances continue through May 14 in Sacramento. 

“STC deserves recognition for taking on such a difficult, worthy project,” declares Marcus Crowder of the Sacramento Bee, as he praises the “beautiful music … lovely score.” 

The Sacramento News & Review gives the show FOUR STARS, and Jeff Hudson of CapRadio claims, "This score is better than most new musicals," reports of the “uplifting finale” and sums up his review with, “You should go and check it out yourself!"

Just as rewarding as the critics’ praise is the response from individual audience members on social media:
