What people are saying
I encourage a work group trip to honour all the receptionists out there, and what it means to have 20 things going on at once on a given day. Reception is an entertaining honest production pulled off tirelessly and elegantly without any pretensions. It generates the right amount of laughs and applause, and Bethany Simon is a talent to watch. – Daily Review
This is a flawless duet of music and acting which is comedic, energetic and highly entertaining. … Both script and music are compatible and the comedy is constant and appealing. I would highly recommend this delightful, entertaining musical. – Stage Whispers
Reception should definitely sit on your latest list of cabaret shows to see, especially if you want to be completely entertained by interesting stories, clever writing, great songs and lots of laughs – and who wouldn’t? – Theatre Press
