    What the popular press said...

    "This somewhat jittery production never quite finds a sustained tone, a natural rhythm or even a logical sense of sequence."

    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "Never takes off."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Confirms enchantingly what we already know but can gladly bear such eloquent repeating of: that Sondheim is the best composer- lyricist we’ve got."
    John Simon for Bloomberg

    "Wise, warm, witty, and entirely wonderful."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "The whole thing is cumbersome and unfocused."

    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "A lot of wonderful moments."
    Michael Kuchwara for Associated Press
