Entertaining, Funny, Refreshing, Romantic, Underrated

See it if you can get past the 90s film's sexist plot point: a woman is gambled away for a weekend by her fiancée to pay off his debt to a casino don.

Don't see it if you'd hate a terrific score, fun-loving performances, and a rollicking good time.

The New York Times

"Wake up and smell the mai tais, New York. Las Vegas has come calling on you. And it’s on such good behavior, you’d be a churl not to embrace it...This production is a real-live, old-fashioned, deeply satisfying Broadway musical in a way few new shows are anymore. It offers the perfect sunny holiday for frozen Eastern city dwellers."

Time Out New York

"How to answer snobs who denounce Broadway as a cultural wasteland of gaudy lights, musical cheese and tacky titillation, a place where suckers flock to get fleeced? At least it’s not…Las Vegas? Well, the Great White Way has now become Sodom of the Southwest, and whatever happens there is definitely not staying there: Honeymoon in Vegas is too damn fun to keep secret."

The Hollywood Reporter
January 15th, 2015

"It's breezy and fun, full of toe-tapping numbers, witty design touches and frequent bursts of irreverent comic inspiration. But it sputters after a tremendously entertaining first act. This is a 2½-hour musical with maybe 90 minutes' worth of decent material. Ultimately, the show feels slight."

Entertainment Weekly
January 15th, 2015

"It’s a great surprise that the large-scale musical version of the movie is a frothy delight, a pineapple-sweet warm-up in this most frigid season...Vegas has its share of missteps—a few clunker lines, a still-slightly-sexist undertone, and what has to be the only showtune in history about skin cancer. But a gifted, generous cast puts the entire affair over."

Variety
January 15th, 2015

"“Honeymoon In Vegas” answers gloomy Gotham’s crying need for some good old lowbrow farce. Scribe Andrew Bergman has turned his not-quite-cult 1992 movie into a not-quite-knockout Broadway musical.  But with catchy tunes and clever lyrics, sweet comic turns, and a bevy of Elvis impersonators, this brassy little show might brighten up this town over the winter."

Deadline
January 15th, 2015

"You think they just don’t make ‘em like they used to? To find out how wrong you are, head to Broadway for a couple of hours of finger-snapping, tap-dancing, hip-swiveling, Elvis-impersonating, night-club crooning fun. That’s what the musical adaptation of Honeymoon In Vegas promises and what it delivers."

Chicago Tribune
January 15th, 2015

"The sexist values of the show are not so much 1992 as 1952...This is, of course, an old-fashioned musical comedy, a genre not known for its progressive values. And the warm-centered tone is never crass or sleazy. Still, this thing badly needed the safety of some chronological remove, especially given that women buy most of the tickets to shows like this."

New York Post
January 15th, 2015

"The rambunctious new musical “Honeymoon in Vegas” is old-fashioned and proud of it. A big orchestra pumps out a brassy, melodic score that nods to Sinatra’s ba-da-bing days. The wacky plot could have been lifted from a 1960s caper. If only parts of the story didn’t cross the line between old-school and antediluvian."
