What the Critics Say About SHINE
“Hands down more goosebumps per minute than any other show! It’s ‘RENT’ for our generation. The music is Broadway caliber. If it doesn’t go on to a longer run, there is no God.”
NYC Fringe Guide
BEST OF THE FEST: “The first show to earn a ‘MUST SEE’ designation from our staff this year… Rip-roaring hilarity. The cast is superb, the performances tight, the music is bumping and the hips grinding.”
Theatre Is Easy
BEST OF FRINGE: “The show is brilliant: brilliant performances, amazingly classy dancing, badass vocal performances and all around stellar and crisp acting. Bottom Line: You do NOT want to miss SHINE: A Burlesque Musical.”
The Wall Street Journal
“SHINE intrigued us. The show is more entertaining than a lot of burlesque out there. Cass King melds all the feminine charms of a burlesque performer with the comedic panache of the (usually male) host.”
Stage and Cinema
“Thoughtful, sultry, and hilarious… smart and sexy… the songs are witty and catchy… the ensemble shines… The show expertly balances between sincerity and campy send-up… Get your tickets right away. This is a Fringe show that deserves to sell out.”
“A genuinely bawdy musical that triumphantly succeeds in hailing free expression of sexuality and embracing of individuality, while dazzling the audience with the talent of its artists.
Seattle City Arts Magazine
“A shameless celebration… whoever you are, SHINE will make you laugh at yourself.”
The Georgia Straight Vancouver
“A stellar example of the new burlesque, Shine is an empowered celebration of individuality.”
The Vancouver Courier
“It has all the makings of a cult classic.”
