Review Highlights



The Ball at the Savoy

Chicago Folks Operetta

July 2014


"...the core dancers, bringing grace to the choreography by Todd Rhoades. His dances, which fit seamlessly into the story at every turn, are a big reason this production is so beguiling."

M.L. Rantala, Hyde Park Herald -



The Land of Smiles

Chicago Folks Operetta

June, 2013


“…choreography by Todd Rhoades as lush as Lehar’s fanciful ballets (four dancers delight) and chorus anthems. This is as good as it gets or we deserve.”

Scotty Zacher, Chicago Theater Beat



“Add the nimble direction by Elizabeth Margolius that coordinated slow march entrances with the expressive choreography by Todd Rhoades with the casting of  professional singers from the Lyric Opera of Chicago and Chicago Symphony Chorus with Equity and AGMS talents and The Land of Smiles sings magnificently. The outstanding dancers adds depth to the mood and celebrations of the work.”

Tom Williams, Talk Theater in Chicago -
