4/5 Stars "Mayer has wrangled a marvelous cast…Groff's Seymour is a likable klutz with just a hint of deadpan creepiness…Christian Borle solidifies his status as the preeminent musical-theater clown of his generation...And Blanchard is a revelation...She's the heart of the production."

"The show’s most charming quality is its feeling of having been put on for the hell of it. I’m sure it’s going to make money. It’s a dream cast of consummate pros. But — and my eyes look like hearts while I type this — the infectious energy is pure amateur."
