" Bathed in candlelight, the Nuns of Nonnberg Abbey open the show, setting the bar high for this top-notch production. These talented singers raise their angelic voices in a resplendent praise of God that will bookend this musical. And if the sheer power and beauty behind so many accomplished voices aren’t enough to impress, there are a few of the nuns who lend their comic timing, reverence and superb voices as specific canoness characters. They include Susan Moniz, Lydia Burke, Ana Silva, Elaine Cotter, as Sister Berthe, Sister Margaretta, Sister Sophia and a new Postulant. Their collective performance of “Preludium,” “Morning Hymn,” “Godeamus Domino” and the finale of “Climb Every Mountain,” all sung with Daniella Dalli, are absolutely breathtaking, thanks to the excellent Musical Direction by Ryan T. Nelson. And William Carlos Angulo adds a bit of whimsy to the production with his choreography and musical staging."
