BWW Review: HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME a Brilliant Miracle
by Trevor Durham - Oct 23, 2016

Once in a very rare moment do you see community art shine, shine like a diamond in the rough, shine like nothing you could have hoped to find there. Rarely can one expect to find New York quality shows in a space outside of the great white way, perhaps Boston or Chicago. Not Broward, never Broward. Some blessings reach far, in the figure of Patrick Fitzwater and Slow Burn Theatre, opening their bright new season with a shock. Under a very exclusive contract, Fitzwater and his team are premiering The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a Disney produced show with only four productions ever produced. The score is one of the most challenging and daunting ever written, the characters dark as Victor Hugo's original novel, and technical nightmares never seen in south Florida. Somehow, through the magic of his performers (and a full choir), Fitzwater puts on a premiere that rivals New York, a show that most have never seen before, certainly one of the greatest productions the state has ever seen.
