Annie is a Hit with Critics


Our first review is in from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and “Annie” is a hit! Jim Higgins writes that “Annie” is “terrific,” “full of girl power,” and featuring a “masterpiece” ‘It’s the Hard Knock Life.'” Carrie Hitchcock “goes all in” on Hannigan while Diane Lane “is pure elegance as Grace.”

‘Annie’ brings a surge of girl power to the Skylight – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel


“‘70s musical seems to comment on today’s politics, in a Skylight show that shines.”

Oh, How New ‘Annie” Seems – Urban Milwaukee


“Carrie Hitchcock comically staggers through the halls of the orphanage as Miss Hannigan, lending her signature textured voice to the bitter lament ‘Little Girls.’ Joined by her brother Rooster (a suave and slick Matt Crowle) and his blonde bombshell girlfriend Lily St. Regis (a brazen Samantha Sostarich), the trio nearly stops the show with their ode to the perfect heist, ‘Easy Street.'”

At the Skylight’s “Annie,” the timeless redhead shows no risk of going grey – On Milwaukee


“With Carrie Hitchcock as Miss Hannigan and Matt Crowle as the ever-scheming Rooster and the always delightful Samantha Sostarich in a trio that had all the antagonism and mystery that every criminal enterprise needs. It was a crucial reminder for the audience that it wasn’t all sunshine and balloons in the world of Annie.”

The sun comes out, every night, in Skylight’s “Annie” – Dave Begel on Theater


“Spirited and heartwarming, Annie at The Skylight Music Theatre proves that Tomorrow is better and brighter than today, so don’t lose hope. This is the best gift we could ask for this holiday season.”

SKYLIGHT MUSIC THEATRE STAGES A HEARTWARMING & ROUSING “ANNIE” – Showbiz Chicago


“As usual, Skylight has put together a very talented cast, full of Milwaukee favorites (these kids will knock your socks off!), and, of course, everyone loves a real dog on the stage. Fans of Annie will love the familiar songs, and the entire production builds an anticipation of the holiday season. This classic will feel like an instant holiday tradition, but it’s really quite a rare opportunity, so I suggest getting your tickets while you can!”

    A Holiday Show that’s more Naughty than Nice!

    Another great review for In Tandem Theatre’s “Holiday Hell: The Curse of Perry Williams”!

    “In the role of Granny (a Minnie Pearl lookalike complete with price tag dangling from her hideous-looking hat), Samantha Sostarich nearly steals the show. Her bawdy jokes get even bolder as the evening continues. For instance, she sings her own lyrics, “Granny’s Pants Are A-Comin’ on Down,” to the tune of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”” – Anne Siegel, ShepherdExpress.com

    “Holiday Hell” is a Hit!

    The first reviews are in and “Holiday Hell: The Curse of Perry Williams” is a hit!

    “A word has to be said about Sostarich who is rapidly building a reputation as one of the funniest female actors in town. She seems to be able to get into a depth of every character she plays and finds the funny bone just waiting to be tickled. Watching her play the dirty granny, the pleading newsboy and the sultry seductress of Benny is a treat worth an entire evening.” – Dave Begel, OnMilwaukee.com (You can read the full review here.)

    “Nothing in this show is sacred. Which, in this season of saccharine and sugar plums, can be exhilarating. An equal opportunity offender, “Holiday Hell” deconstructs all the hype, freeing one to actually think for oneself about the reason for the season.” – Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (You can read the full review here.)
