"Converting such a crazy, confounding and notorious novel into a Broadway show is no easy task and the results here are applaudable but inconsistent. At its worst, the show is muddy and plodding. But at its best, American Psycho is a high energy, top-of-the-line visual spectacle with catchy songs and strangely mesmerizing choreography...At the end of it all, Patrick Bateman explains to us that he has no clear sense of self. I’d say the same about the show he lives in." Full Review
"It is always remarkable to me when I find a play so gripping, only later to realize it was simply brilliant dialogue. This wouldn't quite be the case, of course, if it wasn't brought to life by an impeccable cast...Each player contributes to build a message that reaches far deeper into us than star power can. Although much of this play’s appeal is the chilling effect of ghost stories, the lasting impact is one of radiant warmth." Full Review
for a previous production "Though Jackson’s dialogue, on the surface, is sometimes weighed down with clichéd or unnatural exchanges, on the whole it presents a thoughtful and nuanced picture of an entirely present-day situation. Each of the characters begins as a sort of stereotype, but six out of eight of them transform into complex and dynamic individuals...The actors, dialogue, and staging all seemed to grow up before my eyes...Overall, 'I Know What Boys Want' packs a surprising emotional and intellectual punch."

"If you’re the type of person who enjoys watching a crazy but endearing old guy frustrate the hell out of a younger business man, then this show will deliver. If, like me, you tend to grow frustrated at conversations that don’t go anywhere, then you might want to sit this one out." Full Review
"Generally, Bob and Tobly McSmith’s script is decent enough. That said, any shortcomings in the script are made up for tenfold by key performances. Throw in some catchy and hilarious musical numbers, choreography that is consistent, and perfectly dazzling costumes and Showgirls! shapes up to also be a full-fleshed stage musical, teeming with energy."
