Director Peter Jorgensen has assembled five of the strongest, most vibrant voices this side of heaven to take us on a journey sampling 39 classics of the American musical songbook. The most hummable tunes from Carousel, Oklahoma, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music are supplemented by some of the best of R&H’s lesser known work.” –Vancouverscape

The cast of five that Jorgensen has assembled gives this material its delicious due. Warren Kimmel is one of the best musical-theatre performers you’re ever going to see. He’s got an open heart, a big, warm voice, and miraculously invisible technique. He makes everything he does—including floating the high notes—look effortless. Caitriona Murphy is also a pro, a true singing actor. When she sings, “I’m as restless as a willow in a windstorm” (“It Might as Well Be Spring”, State Fair), it’s as if she’s surprising herself with the aptness of the metaphor, which drives the feeling deeper. Upcoming tenor Sayer Roberts and young soprano Kazumi Evans are also gifted and sure-footed. And Kaylee Harwood is going to be a star. Her voice, which is velvety at the bottom, transforms into silvery liquid at the top. On opening night, her rendition of “Something Wonderful”, which is from The King and I, was transporting: listening was like falling in love.” –The Georgia Straight
