Boston My Theatre Award: Best Choreography, 2013

Named one of the Top Ten Shows of 2013 by WBUR's The ARTery

"The true talent comes from Ilyse Robbin’s [sic] artful choreography and musical staging. She moves the story forward through movement and dancing, crafting the choreography to suit both character and actor alike. On the Town is truly a dance musical, with singing and acting taking a backseat in this whirlwind performance. However, Robbins and her talented cast rise to the challenge, creating a truly awesome night of theatre and spectacle. ...the production dances its way into our hearts with its sincerity and talent." - Brian Balduzzi, My Entertainment World

"Choreographer Ilyse Robbins had clearly studied the dance style of that other Robbins, and often triumphed against the limits of the Lyric's space." - Thomas Garvey, The Hub Review
