TCTB Review Roundup: Theater Latte Da's FIVE POINTS

TGIF! The final two weekends are sold out, but we thought you still might want to read what our bloggers thought about Theater Latté Da's brand new totally original musical FIVE POINTS, extended through May 13 due to popular demand. (Maybe you can bribe someone to get in! But seriously, it's not a bad idea to call the box office about cancellations or last-minute openings.)
"It's an ambitious story set in Manhattan's Lower East Side in 1863, dealing with themes of immigration, racial tension, war, poverty, and of course, dancing. As always Latte Da has put together a top-notch creative team to bring this story to life, and the result is an exciting musical that's traditional in structure, gorgeously designed, fantastically performed, with many thrilling moments of dance."

"Five Points is lush, passionate, powerful and so worth seeing. It's a terrifically talented cast telling a new story with beautiful music - what's not to love?"
