    The music was captivating, the ingenuity of the cast and production was stunning. This was our second exposure to this type of performance, as such we found the story line a bit too intricate for this type of visual production. Several scenes were a somewhat confusing at first and to some extent seemed unnecessary. Overall though it was a very worthwhile theater-going experience. We look forward seeing them again!

    It was tricky to watch everything going on; it was partway through I realized the music was live not recorded. Turns out “Manual Cinema” is exactly what they are. OK as to the story it had the problem of silent movies: you had to figure out what/who was going on and who these people were. But a neat and different way of telling a story; you watched not only what but how the performers were doing what they did. Being closely familiar with the Rustbelt and Weirton WV in particular (Dad is from there) helped. Please get them back in the future!
