Despite the fact that Raptors Mania has all of Canada glued to their TV screens DB Clarke Theatre was filled to capacity for the opening performance. As usual I was blown away by the talent and the professionalism. From the opening number to the grand finale there was never a boring moment and much praise has to be given to Jonathan Patterson, guest choreographer who had the entire cast dancing with amazing synchronization. Koodos as well to Karen Pearce for costume coordination. It is difficult to focus on individuals when there was so much great talent on stage so I will mention some of my highlights at the risk of leaving out others. The Tenors and Basses were show-toppers as Men In Tights from the 1993 Mel Brooks film and the joy carried over to the next number when Richard Kallos sang Me, Who Am I? from the 2013 film, Cinderella.

The second act opens with a brilliantly produced, from all angles number, Welcome to the Rock. Shy Shalev, Charlotte Clement, and Sarah Caille are superb in I want It All, and the absolute laugh-out-loud number for me was Getting Married Today by Stephen Sondheim with Danielle Hoyt hilarious as as the reluctant bride and partnered with my personal favorite soloist, Katherine Fournier.

But don’t take my word for it. See this show while you can.
