"While this family-appropriate show could use some editing, it shows a great deal of promise...One of the biggest takeaways is to never underestimate a cast made up of kids...Though 'Peace, Love, and Cupcakes' features some great performances, the production could benefit from additional development. While Hip-Flores' pop-infused score proves exceptional, the book needs tightening. Too many jokes fall flat, the dialogue feels dumbed down, and the musical's cast of over 20 kids is too large."

"An amusing Faustian comedy...While Landmann's book and Quesenberry's score could use some tightening, the show's imaginative and hilarious spirit leaves audiences giggling in almost every scene...It is Margherita who absolutely shines as Mephistopheles...She leaves the audience howling...The musical's book, music, and lyrics could benefit from some editing...Some of the jokes don't land. But in the end, this lighthearted look at a charming A-lister's rise to fame is devilish fun." Full Review
