" PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE: This cast is quite good. Mr. Cassidy gives one of the best performances I’ve seen in a while. He’s entirely comfortable as Freddy, whose attitude toward the world lies somewhere between bemused and agitated.

" INTO THE WOODS: One of Sondheim’s most popular works, INTO THE WOODS is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. And what a magical job they all did. The show was virtually flawless from beginning to end. "

That means the cast includes deaf actors and actors who can hear, some of whom sign and verbally speak their dialogue. "
