EDGE Boston reviews “The Secret Garden"

Katherine Leigh Doherty in The Secret Garden at the Wheelock Family Theatre

The Secret Garden :: EDGE Boston reviews the show and loves it! Congratulations to the design staff in particular!

“[Matthew T.] Lazure effectively creates the panorama of the bleak manor with its long corridors off which there are many rooms, including the sick room of the willful Colin. Lazure also creatively suggests the outside of the estate property with its formal gardens in which another garden is hidden behind a high stonewall whose gateway is covered with vines.

The first-rate costumer Stacey Stephens has dressed them all with flair. And the talented Goldberg, at the keyboards, doubles as orchestrator and music director, conducting a capable 4-piece ensemble in a lyrical score comprised of much sung dialogue and songs that approach operatic arias in stature.”

The Secret Garden continues through February 27, 2011 at the Wheelock Family Theatre, 200 The Riverway, Boston. Performances are Fri. nights at 7:30 with Sat. and Sun.matinees at three. There are also school vacation week matinees at one, Feb. 22-25. More info on-line at
