"What Stroman does is not so much invent new moves as reinvigorate old ones. CONTACT becames an exhilarating ride through a dazzling variety of styles (...) What might have been a collection of dance clichés becomes a rapturous reawakening of dead forms."
in "The New York Daily News" by Fintan O'Toole

"The musical sensation of the season - it dazzles!"
in "Variety" by Charles Isherwood

"The freshest musical to hit New York in ages!"

"CONTACT is the manufacture of Stroman, a director, choreographer and inspired alchemist. (...) To dance is to live in Stroman's world. CONTACT lets you feel that you've joined that dance... An unabashedly joyous, real-live newborn musical! And you thought they didn't make'em anymore"
in "The New York Times" by Ben Brantley

in "Theatre.Com" by Randy Gener
