Ladies & Gentlemen,
It seems that opening night was only a couple of nights ago, but we have officially reached the halfway point of the run!!! The Canadian Premiere of THE GIRL IN THE FRAME has opened to *rave* reviews:
“A fantasy story like this really needs to be outrageous or dangerous to make it pop. This production is a lot of fun and is well sung with a sexy and likable cast.” -David C. Jones, Charlebois Post
“Yusuf and Almeida combine in what is likely the musical highlight with “What can you do” where they poke fun at Alex and Laney’s lack of romantic gumption.” -John Jane, Review Vancouver
“Where this foursome excelled though is in selling their characters. Herbison makes his Alex so darn likeable and goofy you (almost) forgive his childlike behaviour and Robyn, who also had the strongest voice of the night, is perfectly matched as the feisty Laney. Yusuf and Almeida have a delightful spring in their step each time they appear that even if they weren’t so gorgeous you would still have a hard time keeping your eyes off them.” -Mark Robbins, GayVancouver.net
And some awesome audience reviews from facebook:
Chris Doughty – Just saw The Girl In The Frame at Studio 1398 on Granville Island. It’s a quirky, charming comedy with a fantastic cast! I highly recommend it!
Deborah Leroux – What a wonderful play!! Love the actors and of course, a delight to see our Wendy Bross Stuart at the ivories! Well worth it! Sophie-Anne Leroux and I completely enjoyed our evening.
Lindsay Ann Warnock – CONGRATS TO THE CAST AND CREW OF THE GIRL IN THE FRAME!!! Amazing show!!! Go see it errybody!
Not to mention some emailed opinions:
“An excellent performance. The venue was small and intimate and I felt I was part of it all. Bravo to the cast!!!”
“I really enjoyed the show. THE GIRL IN THE FRAME was hilarious and very relatable. The set was adequate and all the voices were very well heard. A great show to go to on a date.”
“We had no expectations – cast, company and play were unknown to us – and were extremely pleasantly surprised. The actors were very well suited to the parts and were excellent singers.”
“This was one of the best shows I’ve seen this year (20 so far). The cast was AMAZING, the script & score is just as fantastic! I will recommend this to everyone I know!!! THANK YOU and Break A Leg!”
We even have some presence on Craigslist!
Someone’s using the show to get a date…AWESOME!!!
So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now while you still can! There’s also a special performance tomorrow where we’re holding a silent auction to raise funds for the Cheryl Hutcherson Memorial Scholarship Fund, presented by Applause Musicals!!!
(Wednesday & Thursday next week is already sold out, so you’d all better hurry!!!)
Hope to see you at the theatre soon!
