Valley Youth Theatre's most famous alumni Emma Stone has garnered a rave review on her Broadway debut in Cabaret from Ben Brantley in the NY Times -

"Ms. Stone adds more than the usual box office allure of a big name from the movies attached to the stage. She gives a shot of heart-revving adrenaline to Rob Marshall and Sam Mendes’s revival.  Wildly, fiercely affected, she turns both her songs and her dialogue into a seesaw between fierce assertion and painful flashes of self-awareness. And when she sings “Maybe This Time,” about her burgeoning love affair with Cliff, it’s a heartbreaker because it begins with such hope. Ms. Stone provides a very good reason to revisit this cozy little corner of hell."  -Ben Brantley, NY Times
