The Reviews!

Cherry and Spoon:  "They're all truly delightful and unexpected, at least one locally written, and performed by a talented local cast."

Twin Cities Stages:  "A Flight of Short Musicals is a perfect show for anyone who is a fan of musical theater and wants to explore what the genre is capable of portraying in only a short amount of time."

Millennial on the Mezzanine:  "The talented cast of nine brings their A-game to make the audience believe their stories without any elaborate sets. And it works. These are some seriously strong actors that don’t need any bells and whistles to make you believe them. You just will."

Stages of Minnesota: "What was fun about this evening was that if you didn’t care for one of the pieces it’s no big deal it will be over shortly and you’ll have another musical to connect with. The strength of the evening is that you never feel that way about any of the shows, they are all enjoyable, fun well written and catchy."
