Montclair Musical Theatre, NJ

On the Boards

“Featuring smart, quick-paced and balanced direction by Gary John La Rosa…”

“Director-choreographer La Rosa keeps the show moving along and balances his stage quite nicely, painting some very pretty pictures with his actors. Vanamo’s musical direction is, like La Rosa’s work, impressive as always. …the cast delivers solid performances throughout.”

“…Annie Warbucks is quite a worthwhile venture.”

The Hard-Knock Life Continues In Annie Warbucks

“The orphanage scenes win best in show. …winning choreography all around.”

“…catching Annie Warbucks is a treat for those of us who have seen Annie umpteen times and love to pursue the adventures of the little orphan that could. Plus, the ending will have you squealing ‘Leaping Lizards!’”

“Annie Warbucks is a bonafide hit.”

Annie Warbucks gives your favorite orphan a sequel

“A couple of production numbers get the entire company on the stage. 'All Dolled Up' in Act II is delightful with choreography by director Gary John La Rosa.”

“All in all it was a fine performance, with some great talent. The younger patrons in the audience seemed to enjoy the show as much as the adults.”
