The Reviews are In:

"A Funny Thing, Indeed, * * * "
(Kingston Whig Standard)

"If you've got a great Pseudolus, you've got a great show and Check insures that this production will be a winner."
(Kingston Whig Standard)

"Pseudolous, played by Blue Canoe regular Tyler Check, almost manages to steal the show with his well-timed sexualized hip-boppings, a perfect-pitch voice and a major likability factor."
(Our Kingston.ca)

"They're out for yuks in this show and they'll spare no means in obtaining them, using lots of physical comedy, sly innuendos and darting on and off stage like mosquitos."
(Kingston Whig Standard)

"Playing Hysterium is Steven Suepaul, he gives Check a run with his sly comedy and waving hands."
(Kingston Whig Standard)

"Blue Canoe's production delivers laughs"
(Kingston Whig Standard)

"The show truly demonstrates the vocal capabilities of the company in the opening and closing full-cast numbers, “Comedy Tonight” and “Finale” respectively. "
(OurKingston.ca)

"The best singers are Katie Hinchcliffe as the dominating Domina, and Michael Hodgson as the arrogant and slightly-air headed Miles Gloriosus. Richard Albin is fun as the elderly, but horny Senex. And the ladies of the evening collectively are both sexy and funny."
