Ryan Borses in Young Charles Dickens

This Show was Unforgettable!

“I just saw Young Charles Dickens with my two grandchildren.  The show was terrific.  The story was fast moving and compelling; the music and singing enhanced the show; the script was amazing — so many wonderful, memorable lines. The acting was terrific. I have seen many shows for children, but this show and its message about impoverishment and the power of storytelling was unforgettable!

Ballerina Swan (2013)

It was Fantastic!

“We took our three and a half year old granddaughter. This was her first experience with live theatre and it was fantastic! We had purchased the book prior to our attending the show so she would be familiar with the story. The performers were wonderful, engaging and the interaction with the children added to their interest and attention. I look forward to future performances.”

A Band of Angels (2015)

Glorious music, emotional acting, historical story…a powerful message!

The show was such a wonderful experience with glorious music, emotional acting, and a historical story that combined to convey a powerful message…For much of our hour long drive home [my son] asked additional questions…it was a fabulous conversation that touched on many topics and truly extended what he and I experienced and learned from your performance. I thought you might like to know the positive impact your work and passion you put into it had on us today.”

Dear Albert Einstein

The Message Hit Home for my Daughter!

“I bought my 11-year-old and 10-year-old son to see Dear Albert Einstein this past weekend. I truly enjoyed every minute of it. Besides musically engaging, the libretto was immensely clever. My son was intrigued with Einstein’s life and went home to research him. I think that the message – don’t abandon your interests and skills just because they are ‘unpopular’ – hit home for my daughter. So thank you and the staff of NYCCT for bringing this to life.”
