"And now, a show about sex that you can take the whole family to: the kids, the grandparents, even your sister the nun. That idea may sound kind of creepy, or (worse) dreary. But I assure you that the jubilant revival of “On the Town,” which opened Thursday night at the Lyric Theater, is anything but."
"Her Ivy was terrific...Ms. Copeland’s singing voice may be flat, but this is a dancing role, and her Ivy has vulnerability and moxie. She lit up the stage of the Lyric Theater — enough to make you wonder: Is Ms. Copeland’s home on Broadway? Here, she finally looked like a star, more fresh and free than she’s appeared in ages."
"Although it occasionally pushes too hard, John Rando’s production inspires considerable affection...I suspect there will be people who love the torch-carrying spirit of this On the Town, and I wish them, and it, the best. To me, however, it seems a bit like a well-mounted exhibit at some Natural History Museum of Broadway: a stuffed lark."
"On the Town is a heartbreakingly youthful work: both about youth and by youth. Watching its three sailors pursue a lifetime of adventure while on 24-hour shore leave in New York, New York, you can’t help sensing the shadows of the three giddy pals who knocked the show together in 1944."
"Although Copeland's acting is stilted and her singing ability very modest, she acquits herself nicely in the role. She has a natural star quality accentuated by her striking beauty and all-American sex appeal, and her dancing, not surprisingly, is sublime. The part is small enough that her lack of acting experience doesn't weigh too heavily, and her lithe physicality is gorgeously illustrated in several dance numbers."
"A glorious 28-piece orchestra playing “The Star-Spangled Banner” in front of a giant American flag safety curtain has the audience on its feet before On the Town gets started. But it’s the jagged blasts of brass, the languorously bluesy romantic ballads and the exuberant comedy numbers of Leonard Bernstein’s jazzy score that make this vibrant Broadway revival such transporting entertainment."
"“On the Town” is back on Broadway, and whaddya know, it’s still a helluva show...and although the young and vital cast is light on acting chops, the dancing is sensational."
"When did you last see a big-budget musical that made you want to shout with joy? If you’ve been feeling anxious about the lukewarm state of American musical comedy, get ready to get hot again: The new Broadway revival of “On the Town” is everything a great show should be."
