Disappointing, Great staging, Excruciating, Fell short on multiple fronts

See it if you want to hear some new song writing with four talented singers.

Don't see it if bothered by loud piano over female voices that don't always harmonize on songs that lack something, added to mic troubles in stuffy theater.

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.

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. Read more

Disappointing, Excruciating, Amateurish

See it if You don't mind sitting in a smelly theater watching a semi entertaining women's cabaret

Don't see it if If you want to see a musical, or if you are a man, who I do not think this musical would appeal to at all.

Theater Pizzazz
August 10th, 2017

"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."
