SIDE BY SIDE BY SONDHEIM

 "...the charms of this smartly constructed retrospective of his early career remain undiminished in a first-rate revival at Ventura's Rubicon Theatre. Director Nick DeGruccio is no stranger to the intricacies of a Sondheim revue and has met the challenge here with interpretations that delve deep into the psychological and emotional nuances of the material."  - LA Times, Critic's Choice Philip Brandes

"Director Nick DeGruccio scored a home run when he cast Davis Gaines, Teri Ralston, and Tami Tappan Damiano. Courtesy of this trio's impeccable artistry, this straightforward songwriter show becomes pure theatrical gold. Adding to the triumph are DeGruccio'ssophisticated staging, Tom Giamario's gorgeous scenic and lighting design, Lee Martino's stylish and witty choreography, uproarious costumes by Alex Jaeger and sterling work from music director Dean Mora and his onstage combo. This class act could run from here to eternity." - BackStage West Critic's Choice, Les Spindle

"...consistently rewarding and sometimes stunning." - Santa Barbara News Press, Tom Jacobs

"The Rubicon Theatre's Production of Side By Side is a magnificently full theatre experience." - The Independent
