Relevant, Great staging, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if like old fashioned musicals - great dancing, sets, songs (all up-tempo). manage to update the dated plot to be relevant today.

Don't see it if want heavy drama. this is light stuff but fun. music sounds like from the period but not really any earworms.

Regressive, Uneven, Funny, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you want to see one of the better man-in-a-dress shows; the piece handles Daphne's gender journey better than expected

Don't see it if you think man-in-a-dress shows are transphobic; this is better than Tootsie or Mrs D, but it's still pretty reductive

Time Out New York

"What 'Some Like It Hot' lacks in depth, though, it makes up for in shinier musical-theater pleasures. You’ll leave this show with a smile on your face...There’s a whole lot to like."

Entertainment Weekly
December 12th, 2022

"This new production knows it has to ultimately come back to the comedy. Even as a musical, the comedy comes first and everyone involved seems to understand that, making the entire show move like Jell-O on springs."

Variety
December 11th, 2022

"This stage production boasts swell performances, dandy twists and turns, razzmatazz dancing and a whole lotta energy... If the songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman don’t always score high marks, well: Nobody’s perfect."

The Wall Street Journal
December 11th, 2022

"Audiences looking for a sugary shot of old-fashioned Broadway hooch will probably find much to satisfy here, but for all the energy expended and the talent on display, 'Some Like It Hot' eventually begins to pall, all but numbing us to its charms by the relentlessness of its insistence upon them."

The Observer

"Whatever reservations I have are far outweighed by the constant, good-natured energy, unflagging humor, and the show-stopping tap dancing that keeps everything moving at racetrack speed."
