Musical Theatre Guild Turns 11
LA Stage Magazine (January / February)
By David Nichols

"Musical Theatre Guild has become a revered local fixture even though its beginning was humble when on January 1, 1995, Jeff Rizzo and Eric Andrist contacted working actors about starting a membership company of musical theatre talent." (Read more)

"Out of This World"
Stage Scene LA (April 21, 2008)
By Steven Stanley

"MTG (the Musical Theatre Guild) has just presented an absolutely smashing concert staged reading of one of the great  Mr. Porter’s least familiar musicals, Out Of This World, featuring a revised book by Greg MacKellan." (Read more)

"Aspects of Love"
Entertainment Today (February 14, 2008)
By Travis Michael Holder

"I beg to differ with everyone else in the civilized world: The astonishingly romantic music of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s nearly forgotten, grossly overlooked, continuously and repeatedly demeaned chamber opera Aspects of Love is to me his finest effort in his long and fruitful career—and there isn’t one dancing feline, roller-skating rollerboy, singing saviors or Norma Desmonds, nor even one crashing chandelier in sight. Instead, there are just beautiful, delicate songs in Aspects guaranteed to sweep you away with them and an actual storyline where the characters have fascinating individual tales to tell and lessons to learn."

"Aspects of Love"
LA Times Review (February 14, 2008)
By Daryl H. Miller

"The Musical Theatre Guild version -- which under the direction of Calvin Remsberg and musical direction of John Glaudini achieved remarkable nuance in just 25 hours of rehearsal -- is presented on a bare stage framed by translucent white drapery." (Read more)

Trio is 'merrily' revisiting roles
Glendale News Press (September 17, 2007)
By Joyce Rudolph

"Musical Theatre Guild producers are banking on a huge success with their first production of the year because of the rich experience the lead actors bring to their roles." (Read more)

‘Street Scene’ – The American Experience
The Daily Trojan (Feb 21, 2007)
By Danielle Jacoby

"Seduction, betrayal, and murder resonated throughout the walls of Civic Arts’ Scherr Forum Theatre on Sunday afternoon as the Musical Theatre Guild’s cast of thirty Equity performers told a story that would stick with audience members long after the curtain closed." (Read more)

"Merrily We Roll Along"
LA Times Review
By David C. Nichols

"Yesterday is never done in "Merrily We Roll Along," which Musical Theatre Guild presented Monday at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's 1981 study of friendship may not wholly satisfy, but Todd Nielsen's concert staging bends over backward to make it play." (Read more)

'Greasepaint's' wit is all in good company
LA Times Review (June 14, 2006)
By David C. Nichols

"Consummate talent takes the prize in Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse's "The Roar of the Greasepaint, the Smell of the Crowd," which Musical Theatre Guild presented on Monday at the Alex Theatre. Adroitly directed by Todd Nielsen, with stellar lead performances by Kevin McMahon and Roy Leake Jr., this concert staging of the 1965 musical allegory has a vivacity that counters its quainter qualities." (Read more)

"A musical with substance gets its due"
LA Times Review (February 8, 2006)
By David C. Nichols

"Director Nick DeGruccio and his colleagues are all redoubtable pros. Yet this Musical Theatre Guild concert staging of the 2002 musical - in which a '60's-era Dublin bus conductor attempts to stage Oscar Wilde's "Salome" while suppressing his true nature - is a labor of love across the board." (Read more)

"Man of No Importance"
Backstage (February 16, 2006)
By Wenzel Jones

"The production is commendable on so many levels." (Read more)
