Here is what the critics have to say: “Screamin-Jesus-on-a-ferris-wheel they’re sofa king good!!!”

1. “Their voices are like buttah! I’m verklempt! Talk amongst yourselves…” – Linda Richman, Coffee Talk

2. “And I thought Elphaba made green look sexy! Hot dayum, Marcy!!” – Fiyero, Wicked

3. “He could turn me!” – Ryan Gosling, Idris Elba, Chris Hemsworth, Kit Harington, Channing Tatum, Mario Lopez, Bob Saget, Gary Busey, etc.

4. “Their voices are like a combination of Fergie and Jesus!” – John C. Reilly

5. “I didn’t recognize him with clothes on!” – Everyone Ever

(real reviews too? haha)

6. “A solo by Steingruby towards the end of the show is hauntingly powerful and elicits absolute silence in the theater while patrons bask in its beauty.” – Donald C. Miller, The Telegraph

7. “Luke Steingruby seemed to relish the opportunity to play an asshole.” – Jeff Ritter, Critical Blast

8. “Steingruby’s facial expressions and mumblings (particularly with mouthfuls of food) garnered big laughs from the audience; his comedic timing is impressive.” – The Telegraph

9. “Luke Steingruby plays Chris Alvaro. We don’t learn much about his character until close to the second act, but when we do the portrayal is explosive. His character is a far departure from Steingruby’s last role as Angel in Rent, yet the actor handles the 180 with finesse…and the result is some powerful art.” – Kevin Brackett, Review STL

10. “And then there’s Luke Steingruby’s arresting drag performance as Angel, who for all her bizarre ensembles and imposing height is the sweetest girl on the block. Steingruby and Marshall Jennings sing the show’s best love song, “I’ll Cover You,” with an uncommon combination of verve and tenderness.” – Judith Newmark, STL Post-Dispatch

11. “Some wonderful voices are demonstrated in the course of the two-and-a-half-hour show, most notably Luke Steingruby as Angel and Anna Skidis as Mimi. Both persuasively act their lyrics as well as sing them.” – Mark Bretz, Ladue News

12. “A tanned, blonde and muscular Luke Steingruby is a playful boy-toy as the lab creation Rocky. He not only looks the part but shows off his impressive vocal range in “The Sword of Damocles.” – Lynn Venhaus, Belleville News Democrat
