II-1 The Island - A Real Nice Clambake

“ Beauty. In a word it describes the overriding and powerful feeling that pervaded Arizona Broadway Theatre's (ABT) production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's 'Carousel' “

–Jennifer Haaland –Examiner.Com –Jan. 19, 2016

I-1 Opening

“..a visually appealing, musically lush revival... ....Brad Rupp is a scene-stealer as ne'er-do-well whaler Jigger Craigin – and a picturesque set designed by Jim Hunter. “

–Kerry Lengel –The Arizona Republic –Feb. 1, 2016

I-2 A Park Along the Shore

“ The show last night felt at once historic and immediate, and--in every emotionally untidy moment, even amid dark, tangled exchanges--the embodiment of beauty. “

–Jennifer Haaland –Examiner.Com –Jan. 19, 2016

I-1 Opening

“Alyx-Marie Kleinsteiber's striking nineteenth century costumes nicely capture the period, while Jim Hunter's imaginative and effective set design, colorfully lit by Colin Riebel with atmospheric background sounds of evening fairground crowds and late-night crickets by Eric Johnson help bring the whole show alive.“

–David Appleford –Valley Stage and Screen –Jan. 18, 2016

I-1 The Amusement Park

“The opening of this new ABT production is a dazzling presentation of sight and sound. It's 1873, evening time, and a fairground on the New England coastline slowly comes alive. As Lizzie Hatfield's arrangement of the opening musical theme starts to build, so, too, does the fairground carousel; piece by piece, horse by horse, until a full, colorful array of fairground horses and eager paying customers turn in delirious, thrilling circles to that famous, rousing Carousel Waltz. It's very impressive.“

–David Appleford –Valley Stage and Screen –Jan. 18, 2016
