“Kudos to Rhett Guter and his graceful, athletic dancing of “All I Need is the Girl,” which Mitzi Hamilton Choreographed. Too bad his character is a one-off!”

“Charismatic Tulsa, who catches Louise’s eye as the budding choreographer of their teenage troupe, is played with on-the-cusp cool by Rhett Guter, who also had an eye-catching turn in Sondheim’s “Follies” at CST. Guter’s soaring dance scene with Rush, in which Tulsa envisions escape with June even as Louise is overwhelmed by love in his arms, is the stunning setup for heartbreak. (The dance numbers, choreographed by Mitzi Hamilton, hit precise emotional targets throughout.)”
