BWW Review: KINKY BOOTS Kicks Booty At Toby's In Columbia Photo BWW Review: KINKY BOOTS Kicks Booty At Toby's In Columbia
by Cybele Pomeroy - Jan 26, 2020

Grab your sexy heels and see KINKY BOOTS: Outstanding newcomers and perennial favorites get their kicks on at Toby's Dinner Theatre in Columbia, Maryland. Mark Minnick directs an unconventionally heartwarming story exploring relationships not often spotlighted in theatric productions. DeCarlo Raspberry dazzles as Lola, and Matt Hirsch masters Charlie Price in Toby's intimate dinner theater setting, creating an evening jam-packed with sparkle, surprise and songs by Cyndi Lauper.

 BWW Review: THE BODYGUARD Protects Toby's Superstar Reputation Photo BWW Review: THE BODYGUARD Protects Toby's Superstar Reputation
by Cybele Pomeroy - Oct 2, 2019

There's much to like about this production of THE BODYGUARD, story aside. It's predictable, superficial and just barely passes the Bechdel-Wallace test. The script is measurably better than the story and the performance is even better than the script. Ross Scott Rawlings' accompanying mini-orchestra is flat-out terrific, and there are some extremely interesting tech things happening. Overall, a strong thumbs-up.

BWW Review: Hear The Bells In Toby's HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME Photo BWW Review: Hear The Bells In Toby's HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME
by Cybele Pomeroy - Apr 19, 2019

Victor Hugo's 1833 love letter to an old cathedral is set in 1482, and it's curious to note that in the nearly six hundred intervening years, there is much that is unchanged regarding social injustice, racial persecution and sexual abuse by religious leaders. Production values are high, while fancy choreography steps aside in service to imaginative vertical and distance movement sequences. The whole production relies on human-centric theatrical artifices THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME plays at Toby's through May 19th, 2019

BWW Review: MAMMA MIA! How Can You Resist This?? Photo BWW Review: MAMMA MIA! How Can You Resist This??
by Charles Shubow - Aug 17, 2018

Many of my readers know my connection with MAMMA MIA! on Broadway (see my bio below). When I saw many months ago that Toby's Dinner Theatre in Columbia would be presenting it (the professional regional premiere) I knew it would be a money maker and knew, after seeing many Toby productions, it would be done well. Well, not only have they done well, this edition of MAMMA MIA! is just plain superb.

Thank You For The Music of MAMMA MIA! At Toby's Photo Thank You For The Music of MAMMA MIA! At Toby's
by Cybele Pomeroy - Jul 8, 2018

Musical theatre is about happy endings: if you like them, see MAMMA MIA!, at Toby's through September 9th. Heather Marie Beck and Maggie Dransfield as mother and daughter Donna and Sophie Sheridan are delightful and heartwarming. Disco, universally accepted as delicious, is the keystone of this show, whether or not you love or have heard of ABBA. In today's tumult, an escape to a tropical paradise where conflict stems from wedding angst and family drama seems a wonderful notion.

BWW Review: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST at Toby's Enchants Young And Old
by Cybele Pomeroy - Apr 8, 2017

If you love Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, there's not a single reason you wouldn't like the show at Toby's Dinner Theatre. It's a fun production. There's a lot to love about it. Dinner is tasty. Everyone at Toby's is unfailingly polite, cheerful, helpful and speedy, including each member of the actor/wait staff. The productions are done with attention to detail and the actors are well cast. That combination of elements is rare in ANY public forum these days, so all credit to the management for creating this wonderful environment. If you enjoy dinner theatre, you will be pleased.
