    What the popular press said...

    "Feels hopelessly distracted from beginning to end."
    Ben Brantley for New York Times

    "Sespite the constant motion, 'Women on the Verge' doesn't go anywhere."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "It's a mess, but it's a big, fun Technicolor mess."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "An unholy mess."
    John Simon for Bloomberg

    "Ultimately, the lack of a defining purpose keeps "Women" perpetually on the verge of success."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "For all its woes, "Women" does stand out in one way. It's that rare show that manages to be absolutely frantic and utterly static at the same time."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Major Broadway letdown, which squanders so much stage talent."
    DAvid Cote for Time Out New York

    "A saucy, splashy and mighty tasty musical comedy."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "It quickly becomes apparent that slavish adherence to the source material was a mistake."
    Frank Scheck for Hollywood Reporter

    "Invigorating and highly spiced, but not satisfying enough for a full meal or a full evening's entertainment."
    Steven Suskin for Variety
