    What the popular press said...

    "Pleasant but bland new musical."
    Charles Isherwood for New York Times

    "Refreshingly earnest. Too bad its heart beats so erratically."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "It manifestly does not work."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "For a new musical, 'it' is pretty creaky."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "It rivals the best of Broadway."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "Left me cold in spite of its mostly excellent performances."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "It's often too lethargic by half."
    Steven Suskin for Variety
