The cast of seniors, which the press material boasts brings over 3000 years of combined life experience to the stage, is thoroughly entertaining, possessing a joie de vivre that is downright contagious.
Tom Chaits – Stage and Cinema
You can’t help but enjoy yourself. Whatever your age, THE BEAT GOES ON! is pure entertainment, and has it “GOING ON”. Have a fun-filled evening with this musical extravaganza.
Cathy Wayne – NoHoArtsDistrict
Now, the producers have recruited David O for the sharp musical direction and sophisticated arrangements, Cate Caplin for the slick choreography, Keith Mitchell for the silvery art deco set and Ann Closs-Farley for the spiffy costumes, and the show looks ready for prime time.
Neal Weaver – LA Weekly
The excellent musical direction of David O and performances of his onstage band provided the “tasty” driving force behind the cast’s playfully thoughtful performances!
Pat Taylor – Tolucan Times
There’s something for everyone from hip hop to rock and roll to “Young at Heart”.
Don Grigware – BroadwayWorld
Written, directed, and choreographed with imagination and flair by the Ovation-winning Cate Caplin, The Beat Goes On features a cast of fifteen triple-threats between the ages of sixty and seventy-nine who prove that you’re only as old as you feel and as young as you dance.
