Review for Youth Musical Theater Company, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As someone who grew up going to Broadway shows in NYC, my standards for quality musical theater are high. Living in the SF Bay Area, I go to a lot of community theater and I have to say YMTC is by far the best I've seen in a long time. I have never been disappointed in a production in the 4 or so years I've been a "fan". It's a treat to watch some of the same kids grow and be absolutely convincing and spectacular from character to character in the different shows. Jennifer Boesing and Dave Moschler are STELLAR in their artistic and musical direction. I think that many people think "kids...can't be THAT great"....maybe these people didn't see YMTC's production of RAGTIME a few months ago. I forgot I was watching "kids"...I was so drawn into the finely acted and performed story. And West Side Story..... OMG!!! What can I say???? BETTER then Broadway!! Having teens play teens was a no brainer. It's now weeks later and the show is still in my head. This company deserves all the credit and kudos they can possibly get. This is a group of hard working and dedicated producers/directors and even harder working and committed kids.
