New York, 1969. Sarina Lemonde is an editor at the struggling Atalanta Post, with no plans to shake up her quiet, respectable life anytime soon. But one night, it all goes upside down: her wealthy estranged mother sweeps back into her life, her closeted husband begins an ill-advised affair with her boss, and Sarina is unexpectedly installed as the first female president of the Atalanta Post. Harvard’s Fringe debut, Atalanta combines jazz, hip-hop, and rock in a smash hit which earned a standing ovation every night of its sold-out Boston run. 'Hats off… a touching story that sticks' (Independent).

If you can catch this before it goes, do. It's clever, the engaging cast are all very talented (especially Miriam), and the (live piano!) music is great. You can see the amount of work which has gone into it. Sarina has to cope with sexism and favouritism in the journalist world of 1969, and deal with her superstar mother and feckless husband.

That's the praise, here's the minor criticism as I could see this being a popular long-lasting musical but it's not quite there. The songs/music were all great, but there wasn't a stand-out song you find yourself humming later. Sometimes, especially at the beginning, it was hard to hear lyrics clearly, often with the piano drowning out the voices. The venue might not be set up for the mics you'd routinely use on stage, but you have to adapt for that. Also, were we supposed to keep up with the exact dates in 1969?
At the start, we weren't given much information about Sarina compared to the other characters (not just because Miriam/Charlie are 'larger than life'), so it was hard to root for her/have empathy for her until we got to know her better.

But the show is great, the cast and crew all did superbly and most importantly, seem to have enjoyed performing. Well done!

I stumbled upon this production by chance. It was excellent. The show is cleverly written and a cast of young talented individuals execute the story with energy and skill.
I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and would recommend a visit. It only has a few shows left to run so hurry and get your tickets!

A really smart musical, catchy tunes and a plot that keeps you engaged. Definitely recommend catching this one while it’s here!

Very entertaining show with a clever plot.

The director told me the first run of the show went badly but I couldn't disagree more. I didn't notice when technical difficulties cut the piano out, as the talented cast continued a capella!
