Relevant, Great writing, Great singing, Exquisite, Clever

See it if you like a show without a plot but with original songs that have a theme which is relevant to our troubled times.Great lyrics and singing.

Don't see it if you want a show with a plot or a big set or lush music. The songs have wonderful lyrics and are sung well. Costumes and set very simple.

Contemporary, Uneven, Great singing

See it if you want to see lots of songs about life with Miss Pandy by a range of emerging songwriting talent; you're okay with a song cycle

Theatermania
March 10th, 2022

"Director and choreographer Billy Bustamante helms a competent staging that gives each song due deference while leaving little dead air between numbers...While I have no doubt that many of these songs will find their way into audition binders, as a theatrical venture 'Notes From Now' is doomed to wither like wisteria in June. Already, with mandates and masks falling everywhere, it feels an awful lot like 'Notes From Then' — an artifact of the theater's lingering obsession with Covid."

New York Stage Review
March 15th, 2022

"4/5 stars...A good and even adventurous 90 minutes devoted to songs about the relentless Covid-19 takeover and related subjects...Someone needs to explain why Mills, one of today’s best songwriters, has yet to arrive on Broadway...Although the Prospect-ers might have arranged their timely songbook as a straightforward concert, they’ve given it a lovely production...Billy Bustamante is the director/choreographer, and has he done a beautiful job moving the seven players up and down and in and around with grace and grit."

Theater Pizzazz
March 10th, 2022

"It seems impossible that each and every person watching the poignant musical revue 'Notes from Now'...won’t see themselves somehow reflected on stage...This collection of 17 songs—inventively staged by director and choreographer Billy Bustamante—speaks eloquently to the trials and tribulations of modern life, most especially in the era of COVID...Each of the songs are immeasurably enhanced by the extraordinary work of a spectacular six-piece mini-orchestra led by music director Sean Peter Forte."
