"Sorry to break the bad news, but Springsteen's choice to develop this residency by himself, without the help of a stage-savvy director, has proven a cavalier and foolish decision -- the arc of this disjointed production is saved only by its music and the exclusivity of its venue....Sure, there is an inherent intimacy many fans will never experience again, and sonically the show was brilliant...If you know Springsteen's life well or have read his new book, this performance offers nothing new."

"While the dramatic merits and execution of the performance as a whole fall short, there's no denying 'On Your Feet' is a fun, engaging spectacle. The play's moniker launches full force at the end of Act 1...Like a Gloria Estefan concert — which is essentially what 'On Your Feet' turns out to be — there's plenty of feel-good and excitement, but when the fans leave the theater, the conversation isn't likely to expand beyond 'well, that was fun.'"
