Disappointing, Great singing, Light, Cute

See it if You enjoy lighthearted musicals. Best part is the incredible vocals by the cast. All excellent singers.

Don't see it if The story didn't really pull me in. Loved the character of Regina and wish the story was told through her instead of the guys.

Great staging, Ambitious, Funny, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you'd enjoy a light new musical with three good actors who sing, dance and make fun during their 80 minutes story of aspiration.

Don't see it if if you expect a Broadway musical - this is a new work with a lot of heart that three actors work hard to bring off. Read more

Great singing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you like a light musical with a nice story about 2 creative partners and their dream to make it big. Regina Comet is a hoot!

Don't see it if you like a full blown musical with big production numbers or an involved plot. This is a very entertaining show but the stage is small. Read more

Fluffy, Entertaining

See it if 2 boys, 1 pop diva. Light plot of them finding themselves / trying to grow up. Very NY Jewish, theater/musical-nerd taste and humor.

Don't see it if Thin/young plot; ok songs; uneven acting: Regina's delightful! but the 2 guys are just ok. Read more

Simple story-telling, Catchy songs and talented small cast, Entertaining, Charming chaos, Super-fun and feel-good musical

See it if you just want to sit back, listen to some poppy music & cultural references sure to send you spinning back to 1990s nostalgia, and feel joy.

Don't see it if seeking a splashy musical that is super-deep, surprising, or unexpected. This one’s all heart, talent, and energy--and slim on a novel plot. Read more

The New York Times

"'A Commercial Jingle for Regina Comet'...feels like the first pancake to come out of the pan: It’s a little undercooked, a little misshapen, but we’ll eat it anyway because hey, it’s still a pancake."

"This isn't the best new musical playing in New York, but you're guaranteed to laugh at this irreverent send-up of the more cynical aspects of the entertainment industry."

If A Commercial Jingle for Regina Comet had even a nodding acquaintance with reality, there might be some amusement in the premise of a has-been tangling with desperate wannabes. But the show unfolds in a Cloud Cuckoo-Land version of show business.

New York Stage Review
September 27th, 2021

"It isn’t that the songs are bad. It’s that they just aren’t good enough. Too many impress as familiar-sounding power ballads, some almost but not quite reminiscent of the Barry Manilow songbook."

New York Stage Review

"Truthfully, one wishes it were more tongue-in-cheek; that’s where Fankhauser’s and Wyse’s writing is the strongest."

TheaterScene.net

"A clever premise which doesn’t go far enough in developing its ideas and resembles such earlier shows as [title of show] and The Other Josh Cohen. However, like a great many light entertainments, it is diverting and pleasant enough without leaving its audience with much to take home. However, its star turn by Bryonha Marie Parham in the title role is top-drawer."

New York Theater

"Parham is a terrific singer and a game comedienne, and the premise...is nonsensical enough that it could have fueled a wacky spot-on parody... The creative duo seem more engaged in attempting to channel their Borscht Belt ancestors...some delightfully silly sight gags."

Rodgers and Hammerstein never sang in their shows, which is the only advantage Fankhauser and Wyse have over them. They’re spirited fellows delivering one-dimensional performances of one-dimensional characters singing one-dimensional songs; ditto the talented Ms. Parham, whom I’d much prefer to see and hear in something more theatrically nourishing.
