“The ensemble of seven, many of them alumni of other Peter Mills/Prospect productions, fill up the stage with an abundance of charm and energy and beautifully pull off Christine O'Grady's Berkley-esque choreography.”

“It is comforting to know that while Broadway seems overwhelmed with spectacle shows and vanity productions, Prospect Theatre Company continues to produce well-written, intelligent, and fun original musicals for a much friendlier price. If you want to see the future of American theatre, head over to the West End Theatre.”
