Ambitious, Entertaining, Refreshing, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You like a show that deals with issues women face through their lives in song. Great lyrics and messages with many songs.

Don't see it if You don't want small theater or minimal staging. This was nicely done.

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent, Slow

See it if You are single working woman experiencing the ups and downs of contemporary life, love, dating, work, etc. You will identify.

Don't see it if You aren't the target audience. Most guys will be very bored. I sure was.

Great singing, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant, Funny

See it if You like shows about female empowerment.

Don't see it if You don't like the song cycle style of show and prefer more linear story-telling.

Also This is a great start to a potentially great show. It's exciting to see the bare bones of something new. There are definitely improvements and edits that could be made, but all in all, was still an enjoyable night of theatre.

Disappointing, Thought-provoking, Cliched

See it if you prefer a Cabaret Act but not a play. and you like historical theaters. Many different styles of song. Some rising talent.

Don't see it if you were expecting a play. Seats are not staggered (from days of yore) Lead singer was replaced. Choreography needs help.

Also A microphone malfunctioned for some time. With the theater at 2/3 capacity, one would think that the Players Theater would offer better seats for the show score folks????? Air conditioning not effective.

Disappointing

See it if you enjoy off key singing. This show had potential. The songs had good lyrics, and the simple staging with chairs worked.

Don't see it if you enjoy good singing. The cast was so off key that it was painful to hear. With a good cast, this show about women's lives could be great.

Theater Pizzazz

"It may or may not be a case of too many cooks, but the brew is spoiled in any event...Arrangements for most songs have vocals and accompaniment at odds with each other, on separate melodic tracks that are not complementary...Staging is simple, which works well for this type of entertainment...Lyrics are sometimes clever, occasionally moving, often pedestrian. Singers are, for the most part, fine; direction is efficient. But nothing is remarkable."

"Seems to have a limited view of women...The songs mostly fit into three categories...The few songs that seemingly step away from these narrow views of love and beauty and make a vague attempt to discuss something else fall flat...Beyond the underwhelming vocal performances, unnecessary and strained choreography, and unmemorable music, the biggest problem is this production’s insulting, demeaning and possibly hurtful portrayals of women."

"The score...is rich and resonant...Singers...show their commitment to the moods and characterizations. Though their vocals are sometimes uneven, each excels at hitting the power notes...The show could benefit by embracing more of the joys of...the elements of life that make it a pleasure to be an accomplished independent woman...Lozano is to be applauded for shining a spotlight on women and giving female professionals in musical theater an opportunity to be seen and heard."

White Rhino Report

"A thrilling song cycle...Four gifted women sing the songs...The loose thread that ties together the songs in this cycle are women and their struggles - with men, with body image, with weight, with looks, with relationships, with hope for the future...My only complaint was that the amplification of the piano sometimes drowned out the singers in the intimate space that is Players Theatre."

"Boasts enough showstoppers to make you wish it were a full-scale musical...The show is filled with poignancy, compassion, anger, insight and humor–truly something for everyone...While some of the songs deal with mildly-clichéd themes, and sometimes resonate less personally and more politically, most of the songs and their performances have the ‘unfakeable’ ring of truth...'A Never-Ending Line' is a loving, respectful homage to women."
