"Marvelous. In fact, it was so good that when it finishes its extended run on September 2nd, producers should think about moving the whole show with its 15 or so performers to an off-Broadway house (or even a Broadway theater) where it could run for a long time.”
What’s really key here is the staging done by the director Will Pomerantz. He has flawlessly put the scenes and musical numbers together.“
"… The best production the Bay Street producers have ever brought us."
"Ambitious – and a little risky… but director, Will Pomerantz, was ready with an out-of-the-box twist – one that gives the show a deeper resonance and emotional underpinning in telling the well known story….
"The show is a wonderful, magical, musical experience. Perhaps the best musical production in the Hamptons ever.”
“Go see the revival of Evita at the Bay Street Theater. This production is a must see!"
"Evita is being staged with skillful inventiveness and quicksilver fluency at Bay Street Theater… beautifully evokes the smoky romance of a sultry Buenos Aires tango bar….
The East Hampton Star
“Although the rock opera is four decades old, Will Pomerantz, an immensely talented and innovative director, performs his magic, and voila! – Bay Street's revival seems fresh and relevant… A thought-provoking and intimate restaging.”
The East Hampton Patch
"The thrilling revival of Evita… soars through the rafters at Bay Street with a luminous staging by Will Pomerantz…. he impeccably incorporates every element into a visually lush evening that scores emotionally as well as musically.”
“A visionary new production….
"Bay Street Theater’s Evita is a triumphant success… (a) beautiful rendition of a cherished classic."
“Seeing this complicated history told in such fun and clever ways keeps the audience entirely enthralled from start to finish."
"A thrilling production of the Tony-winning musical, Evita, under the clever direction of Will Pomerantz....”
“I know it may seem that productions of this show are a dime-a-dozen… but this particular production should not be missed.”
