"Music theatre lovers should flock to this limited season, and experience glimpses of interesting shows, some of which may never be performed here. Another Opening, Another Show is lovingly put together by musical theatre practitioners. Director Christopher Parker ensures his performers sparkle, while the simple staging works well with an excellent lighting design"
Australian Stage, March 2010
"With the title Another Opening, Another Show you could be forgiven for thinking you're in for a night of tired Broadway classics, but nothing could be further from the truth. Parker has constructed the show in a semi-cabaret style interspersing the songs with cleverly crafted anecdotes. Well written and pacy, the storytelling has turned a standard concert into a slick piece of theatre. Add to that four outstanding performers and this concert can only be regarded as a 'hit'. Congratulations to all involved with this project - a 'hit' on all fronts"
Theatre People, March 2010
"The idea of a selection of crap numbers from crap shows is quite terrifying, but Manilla Street Productions have created a surprising compelling hit from these rejects. Developed with a delicate balance of humour, love and understanding, Another Opening, Another Show presents some of the worst musical theatre in the best possible way".
