"I was laughing from the start. By the end of the show, the sides of my mouth actually hurt from smiling so much. Everything about the musical was perfect — the songs (some of the lyrics are outstanding and so well done), the acting, the raunchiness…I can’t get it out of my head. I’m dying to see this over and over again." Full Review

Broadway Voice

"What happens when you bring together classic television characters, brand new creative music, and enough sidesplitting comedy to make you hurt for days? You get the absolutely hilarious new comedy “Bayside: The Musical!” ... You could easily describe the show as a combination of High School Musical and Avenue Q, and that’s enough to sell me a ticket." Full Review

Front Row Center

"Their book is a hilarious panorama of raunch, homo-eroticism, dream sequences and modern satire, while their score pays tribute not only to 90’s power ballads, Meatloaf and the B52’s, but Alan Menken, Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim as well." Full Review

Entertainment Weekly

"In the tiny Theatre 80 on St. Mark’s Place, there’s a certain goofy, raunchy, hilarious magic that happens on stage during Bayside! The Musical!, a raucously inappropriate (and thereby appropriately unauthorized) parody of the late-’80s/early-’90s high school sitcom Saved by the Bell. Millennials, this one’s for you." Full Review

Stage Buddy

"The best parodies are those that not onlysatirize the elements and traits of their subject, but those where the jokes land with equal amounts of humor and heart. This hilarious take on 90’s sitcom Saved by the Bell is filled with loving nods to the show, pitch perfect performances from the ensemble and melancholy commentary on how much the world has changed since the show originally aired."

The New York Times

"So perhaps it was inevitable: “Bayside! The Musical!” — a bawdy, ridiculous, unauthorized parody of the show — is now playing to feverishly enthusiastic, standing-room-only crowds in the East Village. And plenty of audience members dress up like their favorite characters." Full Review

She Wired

"The McSmith’s aim their searing and homo-skewed wits toward the 1989-93 high schooler sitcom that many of us knew as that-show-that-was-on-after-school. Alas, its endearing charms were enduring after all, and the McSmiths have shown us the extent of its comedic possibilities through this zippy musical parody." Full Review

Theater Pizzazz

"Bayside! The Musical! is hammy kitsch at its schmaltziest — as overdone as that lazy string of adjectives. But it accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do: lovingly lampoon a TV show (that was a parody of its own genre to begin with) for an audience of nostalgic late-20s to early 30-somethings."
