DC Metro Theater Arts- Highly Recommended

"...Tucked inside the new live musical retelling of Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame at Toby’s Dinner Theatre is an altogether wonderful concert staging that should not be missed. The show itself may be based on a famous Disney film adaptation, but don’t go assuming it’s for kids. It might be for some kids, but its most enthusiastic admirers will be fans of Gothic literature and liturgical choirs."

Theatre Bloom- Highly Recommended

"...Directed by Toby Orenstein & Mark Minnick, with Musical Direction by Ross Scott Rawlings, this musical masterpiece inspired by the Victor Hugo novel with musical selections from the Disney animated feature film presents a hauntingly beautiful tale with striking, affecting music that is a spring seasonal must-see. Intimate storytelling unfurls in the world of Paris, filled to the brim with gypsies, priests, monsters, and men— all delightfully interweaving their intricate narratives into the glorious and stunning music and lyrics crafted by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, respectively. Though the iconic numbers from the blissful animated film are present and beloved in their recognition, this darker, deeper tale captures the essence of Hugo’s work in all of its tragic beauty."
