"A long and delightful tap sequence midsong lets you know that Nicholaw is going to pummel you with pleasure before massaging you with message."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
" 'Some Like It Hot' is a delight from start to finish."
"Screen-to-stage adaptations are always tricky endeavors, and this one scores points for not just tracing the source but turning up some fresh ideas of its own...No one leaves thirsty."
