This 90-minute revival is proof that similar length shows are no less inferior than their 2.75-hour counterparts. Hailey Kilgore in a breakout Tony nominated performance leads a very talented cast with Lea Salonga, whose supporting role is a reminder why she won the Olivier and...More

We recently saw "Once on this Island" and the theater made the show. They were actually able to recreate a Caribbean island with sand, water, animals and the works. The show starts the minute you enter. Actors are on the stage already simulating the island...More

This is a really fun (but poignant) musical that captures the spirit of the French Carribean and has a little of everything including a beautiful island girl full of wide-eyed naivete, great chemistry, voodoo, storms, dancing, a wicked Frenchman, and a goat and chicken on...More

I really enjoyed seeing the musical "Once On This Island" here. For reference, in the last year I've been to the following theatres on Broadway: John Golden ("A Doll's House Part 2"), Longacre ("A Bronx Tale"), Majestic ("The Phantom of the Opera"), Nederlander ("War Paint"),...More

Boy you are up close and personal with the actors - every seat has a great view, but this production was not my taste. The "stage" was real sand and water and the special effects were interesting, however, it took me half of the show...More

I love this theatre! Each seat has a great view and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Because it is a very small theatre you can really get caught up in the action and sight lines are excellent. On this occasion I saw...More

The Circle In The Square Theatre is a very small little theater. I have seen a few shows here. Every seat is great. Its an intimate theater where you are so close to the stage as the seats wrap around,.
