I can't stress enough how important this show is. It tackles incredibly difficult subject matter in such a beautiful way. I sat in awe of the talent and bravery of the 7 kids. This should be seen by every single middle or high school student! The music will fill your soul. You will leave enlightened, challenged,touched by the experience. Treat yourself to art at its finest!
Fantastic show, I laughed, I cried (a lot!), I remembered my own painful teenage years and watched in amazement as these young actors demonstrated the struggles kids today face with such power and poignancy. Such an important show, with the potential to help so many realize they are not alone and there is help.
An absolutely amazing group of teens performing stunning music and telling heartbreaking, but very real stories. Come and be filled with "Hope", "Grace", and "Light".
I really loved this show! The combination of so many great talents made me feel like I was right there, just listening to these teens talk about so many deeply personal issues, the way teens only do with eachother. The whole thing brought me right back to high school, reminding me how tough it is at that age, and how important it is that we can form some kind of dialogue with teenagers. This musical does that! I just wish that it would've been around when I was in high school!
This show is beautifully done and breathtaking to watch. Amy and all the cast are crazy talented! Fantastic show!
Young adulthood is a harrowing journey. Breaking The Moon does a beautiful job echoing all the painful, confusing and intimate lessons we learn along the way.
Beautiful songs, wonderful acting, brave young people making important art. My sons and I were fortunate to have this extraordinary experience shared with us. We loved the show.
I was one of those in the sold out crowd and all I can say is, "Wow!!!" I didn't think that such a short musical would be so long on meaning. Bravo to Amy for her creative genius, for her artistic purity, and for her crazy crust of comedy!
Love it! I have been doing this around Charlotte, and the country for a few years now!
I was at the performance on Sunday and that young man changed characters so effectively and energetically... even with a script, that actor rose to the occasion splendidly. Someone get him to Blumenthal.
Wow. Just seeing this comment by HELLOWORLD. This is what you got from the article? You see a threat where there is no threat? You see difference where there's actually a deep human bond? It's always amazing to me how monumentally some people can miss the point of a piece of writing or work of art. Or maybe you *got* the point but you're just a common, everyday KKK sympathizer. Whatever the case, it's no surprise that you'd be so ashamed of your worldview that you hide behind the anonymity of a fake name... RIP Thornton Dial. You were a gift to this troubled world.
The company name is Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) not DTOH.
Thank you for the mention of the Charlotte Dance Festival too! Our 10th Anniversary Festival is March 18-20. Looking forward to all shows above!
Enjoy reading this, has shared it with my friends.
I thought this review was spot on. I saw the show last night and it still had technical problems. The phantoms mic went out towards the end although that was the least of his problems. I found him to be lackluster and lacking in presence. Is that really the best they could find in Charlotte for a Phantom? Everyone around me felt the same way. It was a poor disservice to the young woman who played Christine as she was phenomenal. Her voice was amazing. I would say that save for the phantom the cast was outstanding. And I wholeheartedly agree that the costumes during masquerade were superb. The chandelier did stick out like a sore thumb, the pyrotechnics were gimmicky and not necessary and the snow machine was a joke. It was so loud that it was distracting.
For what it is this production was really good. It deserved the good turnout that it had. It's definitely an A+ for effort.
Perry's post runs a blurred line between an actual good 'review' and an obnoxious 'critique.' It's obvious that he enjoyed the show, but needed to find something to pick apart. Counting the seats in the Orchestra Pit? Really?
One of the most pretentious articles I've ever read...
It was so amazing. I had a great time plus I was in the third row close to the stage
How does one apply to become a future artist-in-residence?
Billy and Hope sang ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT, which is Cole Porter's ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT, not the Welsh lullaby of the same name.
Reno does not sing "all through the night." Neither does Ashtyn.
