Reviews for Ruddigore

“…instead of dark and shadowy, it’s all spoof and satire and jolly good fun…feel free to take along the kiddies…it’s the sort of fun that’s contagious and leaves you feeling light-hearted and emotionally buoyant.”
David Zuchowski, Pittsburgh Owl Scribe

Reviews for The Gondoliers

“Anyone who loves the merriest and some of the best of G&S should experience it, especially as presented by the exuberant and dedicated Pittsburgh Savoyards. Get to Gondoliers! You’ll have more fun watching this live performance than watching anything on a screen.”
Yvonne Hudson, Pittsburgh in the Round

Reviews for The Yeomen of the Guard

“Once again I’m staggered by the tremendous work provided by music director Guy Russo and his orchestra… Sally Denmead directs and the result is a credible, solid production with pace and purpose… Hats off to the detailed set design (Robert Hockenberry) and the considerable attention Ellen Rosen has paid to the costuming.”
Ted Hoover, Pittsburgh Current

“The orchestra under Guy Russo is robust, providing reasonably full instrumentation for yet another complex and nuanced G&S score. Singing here is overall first rate; the featured leads have impressive credentials and training.”
Yvonne Hudson, Pittsburgh in the Round

“I applaud the entire cast… The featured players delivered solid, inspired performances in this bittersweet musical. I consider last night’s success truly a group effort.”
Tom Pollard, Popular Pittsburgh

Reviews for The Grand Duke

“[The] production was the only financial failure that Gilbert and Sullivan experienced… [but] watching the high steps and facial expressions of the on-stage talent, I was convinced that they were delivering one of the best of the Gilbert and Sullivan works”
Tom Pollard, Popular Pittsburgh

“Theatergoers who make the trek to Carnegie are in for a fun and entertaining evening”
Dave Zuchowski, Pittsburgh Owl Scribe
