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

Reviews for H.M.S. Pinafore

“It’s been three days… and I’m still singing ‘I Am the Monarch of the Sea’ to myself”
Helen Meade, Pittsburgh in the Round

“The Pittsburgh Savoyards [keep] Gilbert and Sullivan’s spirit alive in Pittsburgh”
Tom Pollard, Popular Pittsburgh
