Washington Times - Highly Recommended

"...For something completely different and even a bit exotic, Barber & Barberillo is well worth a night out on lively 14th St. NW. Blending acid with charm, this production once again brings to DC the kind of intriguing material even seasoned theatergoers might otherwise miss."

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"... The In Series deals a ‘royal flush’ of magic and love and great singing as Rick Davis directs a talented group of singers/comedians in the operatic double-header of Samuel Barber and Giancarlo Menotti’s A Hand of Bridge (1959), and Francisco Asenjo Barbieri’s The Little Barber [‘barberillo’] of Lavapies (1874), in Barber & Barberillo. And for theatregoers who have not heard or seen zarzuela before – you are in for a real treat!"

Once more Producing Artistic Director Carla Hubner and her In Series have taken on a double-bill of “pocket opera”. And, as she has in the past, Hubner refuses to be either defined or limited by culture, including language, musical genres, or budget. Here she plays her own game of chance and strategy, pairing up opera by the most sophisticated 20th century duo, Samuel Barber and Carlo Menotti, with the classical “folk” music-theatre of Spanish zarzuela.
