September 27th, 2022

As conceived, directed and choreographed by Randy Skinner, who was also part of the creative team that brought the stage version of the 1954 classic Irving Berlin’s White Christmas to Broadway, Cheek to Cheek is a welcome addition to York Theatre’s homages to Broadway and film composers. They strike gold again with this charming revue that focuses on the lesser known classic songs from the decades of Berlin moving seamlessly from movie lot to movie lot. The very talented Jeremy Benton and Kaitlyn Davidson, returning from the original run of this show, are joined by the radiant Darien Crago, Danny Gardner, Darrell T. Joe and Melinda Porto.

"Set against dancers and singers of fine quality, and backed by an equally talented band of musicians, the show is as attractive as it is entertaining."

New York Theater
September 24th, 2022

An intelligent, entertaining musical revue that showcases two dozen of the songs that Irving Berlin wrote for movie musicals… Hollywood is a smart focus for “Cheek to Cheek,” which York Theater is bringing back…with four of the six cast members new. All are in fine voice, with elegant and agile moves, and perhaps a bit too much cheer.

" 'Cheek to Cheek' is pure entertainment, especially when it comes to dance: waltz, tap, ballroom."

"Despite its propagandistic flourishes, Cheek to Cheek is a fine tribute to America's most influential songwriter. Even if you don't know his name, you know Berlin's songs, and you probably start humming along when you hear them in the shopping mall."

For a previous production

A fleet, effortlessly entertaining eighty minutes. Above all, there is the sheer astonishment that Berlin, who had no formal training -- he could compose in one key only -- and a minimal education, became such a master of his craft -- fluent with syncopated rhythms, seamlessly blending many influences into a distinctive musical language, and gifted at rhymes marked by an understated wit…As Cheek to Cheek repeatedly demonstrates, a remarkable sophistication is sheathed in an apparent simplicity; to quote another lyricist, it's nice work if you can get it.

Talkin' Broadway
December 2nd, 2021
For a previous production

"Cheek to Cheek covers a lot of familiar ground, and there are times one fears for the metatarsals (and facial muscles; good Lord, do they smile a lot) of these fast-stepping, hard-working young people. But you know what? It's comfort food, a dish that suits both the holiday season and these difficult times. How welcome are 80 well-done minutes of Irving Berlin? How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky?"
