"The cast is all overmiked, by sound designer Julian Evans, but the excess of decibels is less annoying than usual, because the lyrics are so clear and everyone sounds so good. It's mostly solos and duets, but the ensemble harmonies are truly gorgeous."

"This one-act show, featuring five abundantly gifted singer-dancers, underscores the wide-ranging nature of the composer's music. Yeston has successfully adopted diverse musical sounds...Mostly though, he's known for lush, sweeping, timeless melodies."

Score: 85% "It's a pleasure to listen to unpretentious tuneful melodies sung by talented performers. Some of Maury Yeston's songs have worn better than others over time, but nonetheless Anything Can Happen in the Theater offers us a welcome respite from the daily grind."

"Awesomely engaging overview of the best of Maury Yeston, who wrote both the thoroughly delightful music and the unusually witty, touching, or poetic—as the case may be—lyrics of one song after the other…The ensemble…grabs you with its charisma, intelligence, and vocal expertise."
