“The three talented tenors tantalized our sensibilities with beautifully rendered offerings from Broadway shows of the past century. Raucous humor, delightful and well remembered tunes, and a high level of musicianship characterized the whole evening. There was such a comprehensive range of music that there was something for everyone.” – Capital Gazette
