With the recent presentation of Rising to the Tap, critics were deliberately not invited to review the show. The creators (Adam Koplan, Or Matias, and Andrew Nemr) didn’t want to send the message that the show had “opened” (and then closed) as they may be planning for a real NYC premiere when they do a longer run. In the commercial theatre business reviews indicate an “open” show and Rising to the Tap is still on its way to being that.
That said, without the creators knowledge, two critics came. And reviewed. On a 2 show run! That’s very rare. The good thing is that the reviews were great! Read the full reviews below.
Rising to the Tap also made the Huffpost round-up of best dance performances of the year.
