press:

The world premiere of “The Show on the Roof” is a musical, magical song and dance package of eye-popping sizzle and dazzle that almost breaks your heart.

 

Innovative acting and directing techniques were effective and impressive as they employed split-screen scenes, dramatically and beautifully played out with one another while facing the audience. Brilliant.

I guarantee if you’re lucky enough to see this production, you will run through a gamut of emotions yourself: you’ll smile and laugh, shake your head in wonder — how did they do that? — and perhaps even shed a tear or two...

But mostly, I think, you will feel like you’ve seen something big. Something that stirred your emotions, left you with something to ponder, gave you a little history lesson, a few new tunes to hum, a great new memory.

As you can see, I don’t have any real criticisms to toss out here.
