IRNE Award: Best Choreography at a Small Theater, 2016

"Ilyse Robbins has done it again. The director-choreographer who made her production of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” the must-see musical of 2013, returns to Stoneham to work her magic on “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” Robbins takes this dated warhorse and infuses it with movement, wit, and the effervescence of an ensemble enjoying every minute of their performances." - Terry Byrne, The Boston Globe

"Stoneham Theatre has discovered that the secret to success for producing a big song and dance musical is to enlist Ilyse Robbins to direct and choreograph. With Robbins reigning as chair of the board over a company of established pros and starry-eyed up-and-comers, this effervescent How to $ucceed is bound to do boffo business." - Nancy Grossman,
