What the Press Said:

“If ever a local show has presented one with the opportunity for a one-stop tour of musical history, it is Broadway Babies…Ultimately, Broadway Babies can’t be beat for ‘bang for buck’. The costumes, as designed by Marcel Meyer, are terrifically inventive and stylish, and almost worth the price of admission alone” THE CAPE TIMES
