Little Women was directed by Kimberly Beasley who is an assistant professor of voice at Jacksonville University. In reading the biographies in the program, we noted that a number of her students were in this production. Professor Beasley’s definitive direction made this show a truly marvelous evening of theatre, a real treat for the eyes and ears. The voices were indeed superb. EU Jacksonville

A word of advice to the general public. The next time you hear about a play or a musical at Jacksonville University, by all means make plans to attend. Our experience has been the university has exceptional talent both in musical theatre and drama. In addition, they always have reasonable and affordable ticket prices, and an exceptionally comfortable theatre. EU Jacksonville

I have now attended several shows at both the Terry Concert Hall and its next door neighbor, The Swisher Theatre, and find both facilities excellent and truly an asset to the cultural growth of this city. If you have not taken the opportunity to see a performance in either of them, check out Jacksonville University on their website for announcement of future events. You will be glad you did. Thanks for a delightful afternoon of fine music.
Last Five Years is sincerely performed by Andrew Weir and Diane Mair. And it features a highly proficient musical ensemble, led by conductor Kim Beasley. - Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
