Review by DAVID LUCARELLI

June 12, 2019 certified reviewer

What I liked

Every cast member is a triple threat, and the show moves at a fast, funny pace.

What I didn't like

At the very end, the show smartly tears apart the philosophies and values of the Arthurian legends. Every one of these criticisms is valid when judged through the lens of the 21st Century. It then goes on to list all the ways in which the legend lives on today in various forms of media. One wishes they could have at least added an asterisk that perhaps the legends survive is that, flawed as their values may be by modern standards, they also contained within them the primitive seeds of democracy, respect for women, and the acknowledgement that wealth and power carry with them the responsibility to help protect the weak and less fortunate.

My overall impression

A top notch modern take on the Arthurian legends featuring inspired choreography, live music & dance.
