Vapid, one-dimensional

See it if Some of the songs are beautiful; a nice ballad. Actresses are high-energy & very talented.

Don't see it if Way over-amplified, don't really care about the one-dimensional characters & their cookie-cutter love lives. Feels long at 90 minutes.

Embarrasing, Predictable, Insipid, Fluffy, Excruciating

See it if Four stereotyped women get together to sing and dance, drink wine, talk chick flick movies and whine.

Don't see it if Some of the song and dance numbers are so excruciating I had to close my eyes just to get through it. Read more

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if you support women empowering each other, like "chick flicks", are a movie buff, or want to enjoy a great evening out with BFF's.

Don't see it if You are a misogynist, don't like chick flicks, don't like musicals. Read more

BroadwayWorld
March 8th, 2019

"There's no plot except for how the four find emotional support from each other and from the fantasy world their favorite movies supply...Conn has a talent for pleasing melodies but the intended cleverness of her book and lyrics tends to lag. Fortunately, the four women on stage sell the show terrifically while director David Ruttura and choreographer Sarah O'Gleby keep the proceedings moving at a lively pace."

Lighting & Sound America

"A show that knows its target audience and how to woo it. A girls'-night-out entertainment about a girls' night out, it is almost indecently poised to cater to fun-seeking females in the market for easy, familiar jokes...'Chick Flick,' for all its bountiful clichés and predictable gags, is a bit better than it needs to be...The ladies make an ingratiating quartet, and, under Ruttura's sensible direction, they look like they're having a good time; they make weak material seem better than it is."

New York Stage Review
March 7th, 2019

"Conn’s songs are a series of cliché-ridden trivialities, one more forgettable than the next. And the characters are little more than cardboard cutouts. But let’s look on the bright side. The women don’t sing into their hairbrushes...But I’m pretty sure I’m overanalyzing a show that’s meant to be enjoyed with your BFFs and a few glasses of Chateau Ste. Michelle (or whatever’s your chardonnay of choice). And a shot or two of Patrón Silver."

New York Stage Review
March 7th, 2019

"That late, hopeful glimmer of effectively winking self-awareness is gone...Which is, sadly, pretty much par for the course in this aggressively cheery, entirely unbelievable, bring-the-bachelorettes musical...'Chick Flick the Musical' is exactly what you expect it to be, for better and for worse, and that might well be enough to earn it a dedicated girls-night-out audience...The songs come at you, the dancing comes at you, the amplification comes at you. As such, David Ruttura’s direction is relentless."

"Conn’s zesty score is a fusion of her peppy music and well-crafted lyrics...Conn’s upbeat book is an orderly framework charting the everyday predicaments of her plucky stock characters...The scenario manages to just about sustain its 80 minute length. Conn strives for and achieves a feel-good tone for this escapist escapade...Director David Ruttura and choreographer Sarah O’Gleby bring as much razzle dazzle as possible to the production with their animated presentational flourishes."

Front Row Center

"Attempts to recreate the feeling of watching a romantic comedy as a wine-and-tequila-soaked night in with the ladies and your favorite feel-good films. 'Chick Flick' ends up landing somewhere close, an entertaining celebration of the 'chick flick' film, yet a reflection rather than a commentary of its unrealistic expectations...Led by a strong cast of four women who breathe life into Conn’s group of girlfriends...A fun night out with the ladies at a feel good film."

"A charming excuse to take your girlfriend, gay friend, sister or mother to an Off-Broadway show that won’t disappoint...All while belting out 14 original tunes... Conn has a talent for pleasing melodies but the intended cleverness of her book and lyrics tends to lag...Fortunately, the four women on stage sell the show terrifically... If you’ve got the urge to 'forget yourself and live Joan Wilder’s life' via a hilarious musical with a flashy, Dreamgirls-inspired finale, head over to the Westside Theatre."

Theatre's Leiter Side
March 12th, 2019

"A spirited, nearly plotless, chamber musical…The generic but still listenable pop music score gives us 14 songs...The lyrics aren't Sondheim, but a few come close enough…No one has much dimensionality, and each behaves in ways certain feminists would probably reject…Given the slam-bang performances and personalities they're provided by this quartet of dynamically talented singer-dancer-actresses, that's all that's necessary…Like its final song, it certainly needs no apologies."
