“In a uniformly brilliant cast it’s difficult to cite stellar performances when every member of this ensemble is a star. Rhett Guter’s Munkustrap, however, who serves as a master of ceremonies and is involved in almost every number, is a true standout. Singing, dancing creating a strong character, sharing the stage with other performers…this young actor always effortlessly demonstrates why he’s become one of Chicago’s leading musical performers.”

— Chicago Theatre Review, Colin Douglas

“The show also is quite well sung: Rhett Guter (as Munkustrap) has plenty of pop.”

— The Chicago Tribune, Chris Jone

“Rhett Guter, who is quickly making a name for himself after giving excellent performances in this year’s “Gypsy” at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre and, most recently, in Goodman’s “Brigadoon,” could not be a better fit to lead us through the night’s proceedings as Munkustrap. Guter has a cool and confident aura onstage, with the dancing and singing chops to back it up.”

— Broadway World

“Rhett Guter’s Munkustrap, is an effortless emcee.”

— Chicagoland Musical Theater
