"The question asked by many who see 'Hamilton' is whether it is worth the investment of time and money. This reviewer's answer, 'Absolutely!'" Full Review

"'SpongeBob SquarePants The Broadway Musical' is a wonder of neon psychedelic delight starring a character-perfect lead surrounded by a fun-centered cast which should delight adults and children of all ages!" Full Review

"'Kinky Boots' is the kind of musical that seeing it once is not enough. The music, the storyline, the humor, the stage excitement makes this a very, very special theatrical experience. The touring production of the show is as good as the Broadway show. This is one staging that deserves a standing ovation, not just the automatic polite Cleveland one, but a real, well-deserved one. Bravo!" Full Review

Hand to God

"A compelling tale of two lost people, caught up in their own lack of ability to cope with the death of a major person in their lives, who are losing their fight to chart a course of healthy reality and turn to escapism to get through the angst. The production is well conceived and performed and makes for a fascinating theatrical experience in which laughter acts as an escape from pain." Full Review

for a previous production "Sound like a downer? Not with the fertile imagination of Laufer. The audience finds themselves in a conundrum of whether to laugh or cry, often doing both...The ninety-minute play, presented without an intermission, holds the audience with excellent pacing and allows the fine writing to develop both the drama and the comedy." Full Review

"The enchanting 'Once On This Island' is a tale well conceptualized and told sharing the power of love and tradition as it reveals that 'our lives become the stories that we weave.'" Full Review

Something Rotten!
Midtown W

"A rare theatrical event…a wonderful musical farce. Anyone who wants to go to the theatre and have a great time, unburdened by a complicated plot, listen to fun lyrics, and experience two acts of non-stop laughter…this “very new musical” should be their play of choice!" Full Review

"A visual, dance-driven Broadway story-telling creation that is gorgeous, enchanting, seamless and sophisticated. It is a tribute not only to the music of George and Ira Gershwin, but to the genius of director Christopher Wheeldon, and the performance abilities of a stellar cast." Full Review


for a previous production "'Maurice Hines Is Tappin' Thru Life,' is a personable concert which is more a Vegas act than a play. Audiences anticipating 90-minutes of non-stop dancing may be frustrated. Some might question why CPH is doing a 'touring' show rather than producing its own product and why they stage these one-person bio-musicals. Whatever. The majority of the audience will come and enjoy themselves." Full Review
