Our production of Urinetown, the Musical has received an incredible response from our audience and reviewers!
From our audience
"Amazing performances from a talented cast, Great staging. Excellent direction."
"Truly amazed at the immensely talented youth. Singing, dancing and performances were near flawless."
"Content very relevant to current political landscape. Totally amazed at the sophisticated message delivery by such a young cast."
"Being one of my favorite shows, I've seen Urinetown in NYC, when it came to Cleveland on tour, at college, and now at the Near West Theatre. I can honestly say that your performance was on par with the rest--in particular, please extend my heartiest compliments to the actor who played Officer Lockstock. He was simply magnificent and made the show. I also greatly enjoyed Bobby Strong, Hope Cladwell, and Little Sally's performances. Bravos all around!"
From Cool Cleveland
"After viewing this masterful youth production, you could easily rename it as 'Money Notes, the Musical.'"
"Kelcie Nicole Dugger has pulled together a fabulous production. Her vision has created and inspired wonderful work from her collaborators, as well as the cast and crew. Bravo."
