"Not all of the performers are physically at ease, and the dance routines that accompany several sung scenes, feel awkwardly inserted. Still, this cast is adroit, and good company for two hours. But if 'Love in the Time of Cholera' doesn’t lag, it also doesn’t especially lodge in the mind. The various loves (thwarted, married, sexual, etc.) are too narrowly depicted, and too tangentially connected to sociopolitical themes, to attain the sweeping expansiveness of Mr. Márquez’s writing."
