Chicago Tribune - Recommended

"... The Marriott has invested heavily in a top-drawer, New York- and Chicago-based cast (this is no small revue; the cast numbers 19). The night, gorgeously costumed by Nancy Missimi, is headlined by Linda Balgord, a veteran Lloyd Webber interpreter (I remember seeing her years ago in "Sunset Boulevard" at the Civic Opera House) whose work has only grown better with age. Balgord's unimpeachable bona fides — supported by the gorgeously voiced Erin Stewart, another stellar ALW vet, the Chicago star Susan Moniz and Max Quinlan (fresh from touring with "Les Miz") — anchor this show. One really doesn't get much of a chance to see the old-school likes of Balgord in an era when so many Broadway tours are non-Equity. Her technique is exquisite and her "Memory" is as fine a "Memory" as you ever will hear."

Chicago Sun Times - Highly Recommended

"...Created by Marc Robin (the director-choreographer who has amassed 16 Jeff Awards), and the Marriott’s lead artistic director, Aaron Thielen — with elaborate and varied dance interludes choreographed by Robin, Harrison McEldowney and Matt Raftery — the show, which features a cast of 18, thrives on a “Can you top this?” aesthetic. And each time you think there is nowhere else to go it pulls out another stop."

Time Out Chicago - Recommended

"...The deeper cuts and greater arc make less of an impression, unlike in the Mercury Theater’s current scaled-down Rodgers and Hammerstein revue A Grand Night for Singing or last season’s Sondheim collection Putting It Together at Porchlight. Robin’s choreography (with contributions from Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s Harrison McEldowney and Marriott regular Matt Raftery) is visually intricate but feels a little shoehorned without context. Still, neither of these quibbles significantly detracts from some spectacular fan service."

ShowBizChicago - Highly Recommended

"... Done in a concert format, with a large number of dance pieces included, director Marc Robin brings together a sensational cast of actors, singers and dancers to interpret Webber’s numbers to glorious new heights. Lead by one of my all time favorite divas, Linda Balgord, who has a long association with Mr. Webber’s shows, the songs that have become standards in our modern day marketplace are performed with an energetic verve and authenticity that will make the composer proud."

"...Patti Garwood’s eleven musician did justice to ALW’s music. This is the finest sounding orchestra I’ve ever heard at Marriott Theatre. Nancy Massimi’s costumes were terrific and Diane Ferry Williams’ lighting was spectacular. Kudos to Aaron Thielen and Marc Robin for creating such a slick, polished and passionate tribute to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s songbook. This wonderful show will surly become a standard revue to be payed out in theatres everywhere. It shows why ALW has brought more patrons into the theatre than any other modern composer/producer. Don’t miss this gem. Marc Robin and the creatives at Marriott Theatre, once again, prove that they are astute musical theatre artists skilled in the creation and execution of wonderful theatre."

Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...The theater was offered a song list to select from by the Webber people and made a selection that will have you singing all the way home ( and even later) after leaving the theater. The theater then selected none other than Marc Robin to put the show together and as director and choreographer ( with the use of two other choreographers to truly sparkle the dance portion of the show ,Matt Raftery and Harrison McEldowney) he has a reiue that would be classified as "very special" and a once in a lifetime opportunity to set the stage for theater companies to have a special work to do in years to come."

Chicago Theatre Review - Highly Recommended

"...For an enchantingly sublime evening of song and dance, full of grandeur, grace and power that will entertain, inspire and leave you wanting more, head north to Lincolnshire. This celebration of all things Andrew Lloyd Webber is pure magic."

Colin Douglas

Chicagoland Theater Reviews - Highly Recommended

"...The choreography is the work of Robin, Harrison McEldowney, and Matt Raftery. They work with a chorus of four men and four women who executive ballet, Broadway, and tap dance with grace and athleticism. Most of the dances are taken from "Song & Dance" and serve as interludes between the songs. But there are impressive ensemble production numbers, like a powerful and vibrant selection from "Superstar.""
