Reviews

"Festa has a reserved confidence in the role, a wisdom and solidity beyond the character’s youth. He also possesses a staggeringly beautiful voice. Although the entire cast succeeds in making Bernstein’s extraordinary melodies and Sondheim’s clever and moving lyrics soar with power and majesty, none accomplish this better than Festa. I have heard these songs countless times; never before have they triggered such chills."

"The two leading roles make all the difference. Anthony Festa must be about the best Tony ever, and Jessica Soza is very impressive as Maria. They sparkle together: you can actually feel the chemistry which is so indespensable in West Side Story."

-Guy Van Vliet
Antwerpen


"Anthony Festa is true in the role of Tony. With its charming, peaceful manner, he conquered not only of Maria, but also the heart of the audience."

- Iris Moebius

"There is a strong Tony in Anthony Festa — the role has sometimes seemed namby pamby when set against the testosterone-fuelled gang members but not here"

– Howard Loxton
