    What the popular press said...

    "This season’s black hole of musical comedy, sucking the energy out of anyone who gets near it. That includes its unfortunate cast."
    Ben Brantley for NY Times

    "Nothing happens in this frustrating and manipulative new Broadway musical."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

    "The only surprise in this predictable, mushy new Broadway musical is how ridiculously fun it is."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "The show is busy, empty, and, worst of all, boring."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "Attempts entertainment by manipulation."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Interchangeable song-and-dance numbers, tin-eared dialogue and a generic gospel-country score that quickly evaporates from memory."
    David Cote for Time Out New York

    "Offers a tiresome series of Bible-thumping clichés and improbable events."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "The story remains stubbornly unappealing."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "This 'Leap of Faith' never lands."
    Steven Suskin for Variety
