Great singing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You are a fan of any of the stellar cast members. Really amazing vocals in this show. Margherita is amazing as always. Fun story w/ heart.

Don't see it if You aren't in the mood for a show with cartoony characters. There is a nice message and heart to the story. Read more

The New York Times

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."

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."

"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."

"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."

Theatre is Easy
February 1st, 2020

"If that sounds like a lot of plot, it is—too much, to be honest. But it's easy to follow and just when it starts to drag, an energetic musical number picks things back up again. And while the book and lyrics are already funny, it's what the cast does with them that will make you [Rolling on the Floor Laughing emoji]."

Theater Pizzazz
January 20th, 2020

"No small, throwaway, novelty musical but…a highly polished work with a solidly sensational 14-member company. It's also given a technically sophisticated production matching any you might find nearby on Broadway."

Off Off Online
January 22nd, 2020

"It has a little of Pixar's 'Inside Out' (emotions as characters) and a little of Broadway's 'Disaster!' (musical-theater fan favorites doing campy material) plus the exuberantly performed up-tempo numbers of a theme-park revue and the over-the-top costumes of a drag ball."
