Time Out New York
"Old-fashioned is too fresh an adjective for the musty musical rom-com...Sparks, complications and hoary humor fly, but it’s all de trop—or, more precisely, tropes...Dan Martin and Michael Biello’s songs are pleasant but unmemorable...Jennifer Robbins’s tepid, low-stakes book causes indigestion...Director-choreographer Castellino works hard to turn this TV dinner into a gourmet meal, but his swift and inventive staging can only do so much...Marry Harry? You won’t even want to swipe right."
Times Square Chronicles
"A romantic, kitschy show...The leads as well as the rest of the cast are winning, likable and talented. We care for this cream puff of a romance because of them, and keep trying to fill in the holes that ask too many questions...The score by Biello is interesting and catchy, alerting my radar to watching this tunesmith travel on. The lyrics by Martin are clever. The book by Robbins is cute, romantic and watchable but so unbelievable...This sweet fare will leave you feeling light."
Front Mezz Junkies
"A charmingly silly slice of romantic musical comedy...Director/choreographer Castellino keeps the action flowing, bypassing the awkward moments that don’t make sense or ring true on any level...The two leads also help us discard the ridiculousness and stay focused on the whirlwind romance being played out before our eyes. They manage to keep us engaged and happy out of the sheer force of their likability and solid vocal talent. The same could be said for the whole package."

Top five adjectives describing the show:
Entertaining, Fluffy, Delightful, Cliched, Romantic
See it if…"You enjoy the zany musicals of Comden and Green, or others from the 1950s. The set design is evocative of that time, and the direction is great."
Don't see it if…"You cannot suspend your disbelief for the sake of an entertaining evening."
