"Grandage make magic happen on the Broadway stage once again...Levy may have found her perfect role as Elsa. She is stunning and radiant on the stage and she sings as if the music was made for her...Murin is equally impressive as the free spirited Anna with a powerful voice...Talented ensemble...There are some wonderful new additions to the score and the blockbuster anchor song 'Let It Go' gets a whole new life on a set of magical illusion created with beautiful lighting and projections."

"Writer Jon Brittain takes you on a deeply emotional journey that is not drawn in a straight line, but with many complex twists and turns that will have you completely immersed...The subject matter is perfect fuel for emotional outbursts that are convincingly portrayed by this stunning cast and neatly directed by Donnacadh O’Briain...Do not miss."

"Attention baby boomers: Here is a show for all of you. Even your Broadway boycotting husbands will enjoy this one...There are 28 groovy tunes in total, and with each fabulous tune, a costume change that could fill the Fashion Week runway and then some. There really are no stars in this ensemble cast, everyone takes the center stage with their perfectly chiseled bodies and synchronized movements. This cast is having a great time with this, and it shows." Full Review
"There has been a murder, and one of four suspects at the Shear Madness Salon is guilty. You are the judge and jury, and it’s mad fun...One line is funnier than the next...The real fun begins when they turn up the house lights and let the audience take part in the investigation by recreating all the activity up to the time of the murder...Since the audience is not limited to script, you can only imagine the amount of funny that comes out during the Q&A." Full Review
"In addition to their impeccable acting, both McGuinness and Nolan have strong and beautiful voices that bring this melodious and inspired score to life...This is a delightful musical that will warm your heart on a chilly fall evening." Full Review
"This takes toddlers in tiaras to a whole new level, and it all combines into a hilarious musical comedy that you won’t want to miss...This is a devilishly delightful show, from the fun costumes to the playful and comedic score, and super talented cast. It’s hard to believe Tori Murray can store such a set of lungs in her tiny frame, and Maresca was so impressive holding the longest most perfect note I have ever heard on or off Broadway." Full Review
"The stage is alive from beginning to end. It’s a spectacle of lights and sound...Iglehart was a most lovable Genie, and the audience ate him up. It’s not often you see a standing ovation partially through the 1st act, but this stuff is so good. The audience was so energized, that the whole theatre was shaking...So there you have it...Don’t walk….RUN." Full Review
“Marcic takes us on a historical journey in this high energy ‘let’s hear it for the girls' new musical...It’s all cleverly told with a colorful list of classic song arrangements that touch on women’s roles that changed history and shaped the world...The set is enhanced by a rear projection screen that helps move you through time as does the lively choreography by Erickson who also directs this little gem...Get ‘Over There’ and show your support today.” Full Review
"This is ridiculously funny, with a very sensitive undertone; so let me tell you how it goes...This play is an affirmation that we can’t change the past, as much as we sometimes would like to remember it in a different way. This cast is crackling with wit." Full Review
"If you want to feel the earth move with the most powerful voices on Broadway, then 'The Color Purple' is where you need to be...This is an astonishingly beautiful production under the direction of John Doyle...The score penetrates your soul as it is delivered by the bigger-than-life voices of Erivo, Hudson, Kalukango and the tremendous voices of the rest of this stellar cast." Full Review
"Not everyone has a story worth telling, but that is just not the case with Gloria and Emilio Estefan...This is part musical, part concert, part love story and 100% pure inspiration...This show is bursting at the seams with many of Gloria Estefan’s hit songs played by an orchestra filled with original members of The Miami Sound Machine...There was keen attention to detail in selecting this amazing cast, and Segarra and Villafañe are a magical duo." Full Review
"You will never enjoy a story of the American Revolution more than this one as written and told by Lin-Manuel Miranda...This was not so much about the story for me as it was about how the story was told by this beautifully sculpted and colorful; mainly African-American and Latino cast...This production is truly masterful, and brings a modern twist to nearly 300-year-old history...This show fills the stage, and will fill every one of your senses." Full Review
"Fairchild and Cope are beautifully paired, and it’s a visual feast to see the two of them float across the stage...You will find the journey very enjoyable and easy to follow thanks to flawless direction and choreography by Christopher Wheeldon...This marvelous cast and ensemble all take a leading role in this exquisite production that will leave you standing on your feet, violently clapping, smiling from ear to ear with tears rolling down your cheeks. Who could ask for anything more?" Full Review
