“Miracle City feels fresh, heartbreaking and genuinely surprising… Director Darren Yap has assembled an astonishing cast… to hear their voices swell up in the tiny surrounds of the Hayes Theatre is spine-tingling at times. The overall effect is exhilarating… Miracle City is a towering achievement.”

– Polly Simons, The Daily Telegraph

“This born-again piece of musical theatre is dazzlingly entertaining.”

– John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

“The work comes up shining in the intimate space of the Hayes… It feels even more relevant today than it would have in 1996.”

– Ben Neutze, The Daily Review

“It is superb… To bring back a work that we thought lost, that is collectively remembered as one of our best, is a true and magical gift… Miracle City is a triumph of Australian musical theatre and this production at the Hayes, when it swells to its conclusion, touches the sublime.”

– Cassie Tongue, Aussie Theatre
