The New York Times
July 28th, 2016

"Ms. Heisler has deftly expanded her source material, an advice book in Junie’s voice, into a multilayered story...The results are usually effervescent and entertaining, despite the script’s faithfulness to Junie’s odd locution...Junie’s escapades aren’t always believable, but Kristin Stokes carries them out with appropriate moxie. Imaginatively staged by the show’s director, Peter Flynn, they incorporate several standout musical numbers."

"Basically a revue of musical numbers strung along a thin narrative line about Junie learning a lesson about herself, the show is a fast-moving entertainment that should keep young audiences diverted for 60 minutes. Keeping things buoyant is the score, by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, the cabaret favorites, which repeatedly injects the proceedings with fresh bursts of energy…At the performance I attended, a full house of grade schoolers was fairly rapt all the way through."
