Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Funny, Refreshing

See it if You enjoy a musical set NYC with wonderful song and dance numbers. The acting was excellent with a light, but funny story line.

Don't see it if You expect a heavy story with few laughs and no dancing or singing.

The New York Times
October 16th, 2014

"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."

New York Magazine / Vulture

"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."

The Wall Street Journal

"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."

"The ants-in-their-pants revival of On The Town that snap, crackle and popped open on Thursday night is so unabashedly old-fashioned it could seduce a Red State senator. And yet it’s also so subversively fresh you may find yourself wondering when Broadway musicals got so stuffy."

New York Daily News
October 16th, 2014

"Three footloose sailors aren’t the only ones who get lucky in “On the Town.” The audience does, too. Director John Rando has assembled a great cast for this fizzy and frisky revival. Tracing a tale of World War II tars on leave in the big city, the production feels like a big, juicy kiss. So pucker up, New York."

Variety

"“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."
