The New York Times
May 10th, 2018

"Its basic stupidity should have required a content advisory: Pay no attention to the story...Amid the Gilbert and Sullivan pastiches and dance band ditties, all serviceable but unremarkable, a few stand out...If nothing else, it’s fascinating to hear an ’80s interpretation of a ’30s musical idiom in Chris Walker’s orchestrations...Those orchestrations are played to the usual Encores! standard. The performances are perhaps a notch down...Mr. Carlyle’s staging is generally charming."

The Hollywood Reporter

"The show demonstrates Encores' amazing ability to put together polished productions, featuring elaborate musical numbers, in just a few weeks...As usual, the music sounds glorious as performed by the Encores Orchestra under the musical direction of Rob Berman...Effectively streamlined by adapter John Weidman to two and a quarter hours, this 'Me and My Girl' is careful not to wear out its welcome...A delight from start to finish."

AM New York

"It is nice to attend a feel-good show that leaves you at intermission with a smile on your face, a catchy tune in your head and a dance in your step...Director-choreographer Warren Carlyle misses no opportunity for showmanship, making production numbers as splashy as possible. He also deserves credit for the superb casting and getting the actors cast to gamely walk the fine line of being silly but sincere and not campy."

Theatermania

"Theater at its silliest. And that's what Encores! does best...A delight from start to finish. Even when the book scenes teetered, Carlyle's staging smartly played to his actors' strengths...The 'Lambeth Walk' is the highlight of the show, the best production number of the season in New York City, and a perfect way for Encores! to conclude its first quarter-century. You won't be able to get it out of your head, but you won't want to, either."

“The top-shelf company of musical comedy masters sure doesn't disappoint...One of the great pleasures of this mounting is that the stage is never lacking for talented performers who know how to delight an audience...Borle incorporates an acerbic Groucho-like delivery that bats every joke out of the park...Berman conducts the 27-member orchestra, with Walker’s orchestrations emphasizing the glorious period sound that's heavy on the strings and muted brass.”

Talkin' Broadway
May 10th, 2018

“Spritely and highly entertaining...An on-stage orchestra of 27 doing the honors under music director Berman's consistently dependable baton...As close to a full-scale treatment as you are likely to see this side of Broadway...Carlyle, who directs and choreographs, fills every song with crowd-pleasing dancing and clever staging, so that there is never a dull moment...A feast for the eye and ear, filled with top-notch performances.”

New York Stage Review
May 10th, 2018

"The estimable Christian Borle clowns his way through the evening with the style and panache of his predecessors...Matching him, slug for slug, is Harriet Harris...Director/choreographer Warren Carlyle outdoes himself in number after number...As a piece of stage material, let’s just say that 'Me and My Girl' is a worthy-enough affair buoyed by 'The Lambeth Walk' as well as a few other irrepressible numbers."

New York Stage Review
May 10th, 2018

"Delightful new staging...Scrumptious, tuneful trifle of a musical...I doubt that anyone who saw it would be disappointed with the star turns in this concert staging, or with the wit and whimsy director/choreographer Warren Carlyle has brought to it. Borle is one of those rare performers who can inhabit a character while suggesting a certain ironic detachment, where less comedically skilled or likable actors would stumble in this effort."
