“Die Soulstimme von Glaceia Henderson lässt bei uns eine wohlige Gänsehaut zurück, die farbenfrohe Kostüme und Bühnenbilder zaubern ein Lächeln auf unsere Gesichter und die Stunts auf den Todesrädern lassen den Atem stocken. Die Gefühle überschlagen sich in der kurzen Zeit! Auch die Botschaft, die während der Vorstellung übermittelt wird, bewegt uns noch im Nachgang – Unser Leben ist ein Geschenk und man sollte das Beste daraus machen.”

Feelings turn over in the short time! Even the message that is conveyed during the performance moves us in the wake – Our life is a gift and you should make the best of it. “
” So wie die spacigen Klänge aus der Soundanlage den Zuschauer akustisch förmlich umspülen, führt sich der Betrachter auch optisch wie in einem 180-Grad-Panorama. Bis zur Pause ist „Vivid“ schlicht perfekt: Die Gruppenchoreografie der Roboterarmee, Glaceia Henderson als soulig singende Grace-Jones-Wiedergängerin, die regenbogenbunten Froschmenschen, die auf fünf Meter hohen, schwankenden Grashalmen hocken, die Hutkreationen von Philip Treacy, denen Stefano Canulli angemessen verwegene Kostüme hinzugefügt hat, der Spitzentanz der Ballerinas in ihren Veilchenkostümen, die metrosexuelle Nummer, in der die Damen Bubikopf zum Zylinder tragen und die Herren weit schwingende Derwisch-Röcke zum nackten Oberkörper, schließlich die traditionelle Girlreihe, bei der die Tänzerinnen Kreissägen-Kappen tragen, die erst weiß leuchten und später vielfarbig – das alles hat Klasse. Und ist stimmig im Timing ausbalanciert, weil immer wieder ein, zwei Minuten Leerlauf eingebaut sind, damit der Betrachter die Chance hat, die Reizflut der Bilder halbwegs zu verarbeiten.
Just as the spacey sounds from the sound system literally flush around the audience, the viewer also walks visually as in a 180-degree panorama. Until the break, “Vivid” is simply perfect: the robotic army’s group choreography, Glaceia Henderson as a soul-singing Grace Jones revenant, the rainbow-colored frogmen perched on five-meter-high swaying blades of grass, Philip Treacy’s hat creations suitably designed by Stefano Canulli bold costumes added, the ballerinas’ top dance in their violet costumes, the metrosexual number in which the ladies wear bobbed heads to the top and the gentlemen wide-swinging dervish skirts to the bare torso, and finally the traditional girl series in which the dancers wear circular saw caps , which shine first white and later multi-colored – all have class. And is well-balanced in the timing, because again and again one or two minutes idle are installed, so that the viewer has the chance to process the torrent of the pictures halfway. “-Von-Frederick Hanssen, Tagesspiegel.de
“here are some real divas in the show, singers associated with Anchorage Opera, notably Glaceia Henderson as Dotty, Caroline’s friend and one of those optimists whose aspirations rub her the wrong way. Henderson takes a secondary role and, with her strengths as both singer and actress, owns the stage when she steps onto it.” Mike Dunham, Alaska Dispatch News
