Talkin' Broadway
July 24th, 2015

"'Single Wide' treats trailer park residents as actual human beings. And wouldn't you know it, the result is as honest and touching as anything NYMF has seen this year...This is powerful, psychologically astute stuff...Though 'Single Wide' is thoroughly satisfying, it's also clearly still a work in progress."

Theatre is Easy
July 23rd, 2015

"The appeal of this new musical is not derived at the expense of the characters, but in celebration of them...The witty lyrics and the country music are fun. Director Jeff Whiting keeps the action moving, and all of the performances are excellent...Though the story is delightful, the drama stops shy of creating a moving experience."

Front Row Center
July 22nd, 2015

"Choreographer/Director Jeff Whiting brings some line dance inspired merriment to the proceedings. But writer Nelson’s book ultimately drags things down...If a trailer park is the ultimate metaphor for going nowhere fast, then 'Single Wide' arrives with an unbalanced load, and a sudden bump at the end."

Stage Buddy
July 25th, 2015

"Despite the rom-com plot,'Single Wide' works because none of the characters feel exclusively like archetypes...The country-tinged music succeeds because it tells stories of people living on the sidelines of society, without looking down on them or turning them into poverty porn. Best is the show’s unabashed admiration for womanhood."
