Funny, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever

See it if if you want to see one of the best kids' shows around. Shame on Show-Score's new policies for restricting critical coverage.

Don't see it if your'e uncomfortable going without . kids. It's for five to ten-year-olds but adults are also guaranteed a good time.

Banal, Cliched, Entertaining, Funny

See it if Your child loves Dog-Man or Captain Underpants. You enjoy juvenile humor.

Don't see it if You expect more from children's entertainment. Your child prefers more complexity.

"‘Dog Man: The Musical’ Celebrates a Cop Who Sniffs Out Crime. The bizarro, irreverent world of Dav Pilkey, the creator of the Captain Underpants books, has been deftly translated to the Lucille Lortel Theater’s stage."

"The players all do a fine job. Owen-who barks, yips and howls his spoken lines and lyrics-makes Dog Man a big galumphing sweetheart. Children at the performance under review seemed particularly enamored of Davidson's winsome Li'l Petey. Adults, on the other hand, may take more of a shine to LaVerdiere's scrumptiously villainous big Petey, who is funniest precisely when his attempts at being suave and cool falter-just as with actual felines that scramble to save face after not landing gracefully on all four feet."
