"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."
