Praise for 12th Night from Portland Phoenix, Megan Grumbling, 2021

 

"A hoot of a holiday show – and a holiday musical, no less, with a giddily wide-ranging modern song list and a live band. The very spirited, very fun, exquisitely cast comedy runs through Dec. 18 at the spacious auditorium of the Stevens Square Community Center."

 

"...a Christmas miracle of festive and sumptuously color-coordinated scintillation. Everything and everyone glitters."

"If music be the food of love, this show’s amorous foibles are fed on a richly varied diet. The band... performs on upright bass, electric and acoustic guitars, piano, an adorably tiny xylophone, and even a melodica. The songs are smartly chosen, wide-ranging in genre and mood, and so much fun to discover in the moment that I don’t want to spoil anything. Suffice it to say that the story’s soundtrack moves gamely from cheesy holiday classics to classical guitar to classic rock, with some achingly beautiful ballads and even a barbershop quartet."
