The reviews for BRAVO are in!

"If theatre is about ideas and emotion - this is a rare example of instant access to both."

Read Colin MacLean's review in The Sun


Bravo Audience Comments:

“Well worth sloshing through the rain and snow to see this show tonight. Blaine Newton's script covers the whole spectrum of the 1953 event, keeps everyone's stories moving and interesting. I totally agree with Colin MacLean's review that it is 'tight and riveting'. Excellent actors all putting out 100%. Thanks to all of you for a great evening of entertainment.

@VarsconaTheatre @shadowtheatre1 Saw "Bravo" yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thought-provoking.

"Wow! I saw Bravo last night. Amazing! Certainly a thought provoking and disturbing time in history. Remnants of which remain in human psyche today even though we supposedly have learned from the past. Have we really?"

"Thank you for an engaging and thought provoking evening."

"Opening night of Bravo was magnificent. What a great cast. What a chilling story. @shadowtheatre1"

"@tibbitytalbs incredible performance. I have fallen in love with live theatre. #yeg has amazing talent. @shadowtheatre1 @VarsconaTheatre"
