“The show offers a fascinating glimpse into the firsthand experience of World War II…” 

“This is a heartfelt, hardworking show that combines poignancy with charm…”

“The eager young ensemble displays an enthusiasm that rivals the chorus of the big-budget revival of “On the Town” down the block…” 

“Director and choreographer Ashley Wren Collins elicits committed performances from the cast and displays a flair for 1940’s jive with rousing ensemble numbers…”

“Jaunty group routines…display(ing) the ensemble’s athletic dancing skills with complicated lifts and leaps.” 

“Amar Biamonte stands out as the tormented Lt. Hal Bailey, questioning the ethics of war.”
