And simlpy blah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, Quirky, Excruciating, Ambitious, Disappointing

See it if and only if you are one of those folks who insist on answering text messages with emojis instead of texted response. This show is for you.

Don't see it if you heard that actress Ann Harada is in the show. She is but DOESN'T appear on stage until the second act of this show/. BOO!!! Read more

At least it’s not a jukebox musical

See it if you’re supportive of new work that doesn’t re-purpose already existing pop songs.

Don't see it if you yearn for a cohesive plot or characters to care about. A game cast cannot compensate for the lack of these critical elements. Read more

Critic Reviews (11)

The New York Times
January 19th, 2020

CRITIC’S PICK. "There’s a Rom-Com in Your Phone. With Music: Everybody’s on hand, from a variety of Smileys to Nerd Face, and from Princess to Pile of Poo."

Time Out New York
January 19th, 2020

3/5 Stars "With 16 musical numbers, dozens of characters, three main plot lines and a running time of well over two hours, it's a case of more-is-way-too-much, especially since the cyber-silliness isn't that well scripted. Thankfully, its...analog performances prevent the show from crashing."

Lighting & Sound America
January 23rd, 2020

"Whether there is an audience for a show focusing on the emotional torments of smiley faces and princess images remains to be seen -- but, with its cheerful children's-theatre atmosphere and jokes sorely in need of updates, I was more than ready to unplug by the time the finale arrived."

Talkin' Broadway
January 19th, 2020

"The eye-popping new musical 'Emojiland' is set inside a smartphone, but it turns out the digital sphere of emoji, GIFs and apps isn't so different from the human world."

"The dynamic Lesli Margherita is part of a lively cast including Ann Harada as Pile of Poo in this drawn out brassy musical comedy where laughs are scarce."
