Reviews:
"The unexpected joy of Sing Faster is the realization that the stagehands' choreography is every bit as precise (beautiful even) as that of the performers, and...watching the stagehands' mortal efforts below and behind the scenes is an interesting complement to the larger drama of the gods' travails center stage. Recommended."
