"...SUNG WITH REMARKABLE POWER AND ENERGY..."

LA Weekly: PILGRIM REVIEW

By Tom Provenzano (Monday, April 3, 2006) -  "Composer-playwright John Stothers has been crafting this musical spectacle for well over a decade, in search of absolute excess — visually, aurally and dramatically. In a world suggested by the darkly Gothic images of 16th-century painter Hieronymus Bosch, Stothers explores archetypal episodes of power and human cruelty as he pits wealthy guild masters against enslaved crafters. A mostly heavy, angry rock score occasionally gives way to emotional ballads, all sung with remarkable power and energy by the young cast..."   Complete Review...


AN EPIC IN THE MAKING...

ReviewPlays.com: PILGRIM REVIEW

By Jose Ruiz (April 2006) -  "It should come as no surprise that we are seeing mythical and fantasy tales in the theatres of Los Angeles.... RustyCup’s production of Pilgrim certainly fills that bill. The mythical tale does not have a typical boy gets girl ending, nor is the good over evil triumph spelled out with clear-cut edges, but it does have an awesome set, catchy songs and music, a cast that delivers with gusto and a story that develops between dream sequences and philosophical ramblings by a compelling lunatic..."   Complete Review...


"MUST-SEE MUSICAL OF THE YEAR"

The Tolucan Times: PILGRIM REVIEW

By Pat Taylor (March 29, 2006) -  "Wow! My senses are reeling. In a show stopping world premiere, this is the spectacular, awe-inspiring, must see musical of the year so far. There was so much fantasy and dreamy storyline to take in both visually and vocally that I plan to go back and see it again..."   Complete Review...


"POWERHOUSE MUSICAL: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"

MetroLA Magazine (NoHoLA): PILGRIM REVIEW

By Don Grigware (March 28, 2006) -  "...Pilgrim has an appealing vitality that boasts phenomenal music, staging and a genuinely astounding cast. Let’s say it’s unlike any musical you’ve ever seen. It’s part story, part Cirque du Soleil with unbelievably dazzling special aerial effects and choreography by Josie Walsh.... New York producers, take note!"  Complete Review...

DIARY OF A MADMAN

By Dan Shippey (March 8, 2006) -   When the lights come up for the first time on March 16th, the first voice you'll hear is that of a lunatic named Hieronymus. The character of Hieronymus, whose personality seems to dominate the show, is brought to life by veteran actor Robert Patteri (Scarlet Pimpernel, Beauty and the Beast, etc). More...


CUTTING EDGE

By Dan Shippey (Feb 27, 2006) -  When John Stothers created PILGRIM, he imagined wild dream sequences that were completely original to the world of musical theatre. One of these dreams included acrobats fighting with swords while suspended in the air. The production team knew that they could not depend upon any ordinary choreographer to tackle these challenges, and they asked, "Who can we call to create this action on stage?"  More...
