The New York Times
January 27th, 2023

“The memoir did not offer much by way of introspection on the subject, but there were glimpses into a personality that appears more complicated, darker even, than the one we get onstage.”

New York Theatre Guide

“Rapp doesn't quite succeed in integrating his two throughlines, making ’Without You’ feel like two separate shows at once...Rapp's effortlessly affable persona, however, keeps 'Without You' largely entertaining nonetheless.“

New York Stage Review
January 25th, 2023

“It’s an example of the sort of self-indulgence that prevents the 80-minute musical memoir from fully achieving its goal of transforming personal loss into art. Nevertheless, ’Without You’ should prove irresistible to fans of the performer and especially the show that jump-started his career.”
