    What the popular press said...

    "Neither gravely disappointing nor entirely rewarding."
    Charles Isherwood for New York Times

    "Doesn’t get in gear... The show aims for poignancy, but ends up being corny."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "Confuses sweetness with sucrose."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Feels like a synopsis of a musical — a cut-down, detail-drained version of a full-length show."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "There's no shortage of talent on both sides of the footlights, but "Little Miss Sunshine" can't really turn a cloying tale of losers into a winning musical formula."
    David Cote for Time Out New York

    "This stubbornly charmless show is a sad letdown."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter
