Talkin' Broadway
November 10th, 2016

"Ambitious, sprawling, and unruly...The head spins with all we are asked to keep straight...Throughout, director Klein whips the 18-member company into a whirlwind of action, but varying acting styles and often highly stylized and eccentric British and French accents make for a shifting tone...Maybe we are meant to embrace the inconsistency of it all as part of the experience, but what unfortunately is nearly lost in the shuffle is the story."

Gay City News
November 9th, 2016

"The score, a pleasing pastiche of styles ranging from Medieval to contemporary pop, is terrific. As the show unfolded, other notable crowd-pleasers sprang to mind, like 'Rent,' 'The Rocky Horror Show,' and—dare I say it?—'Hamilton.' Ransom has expertly distilled a vast amount of material, roughly spanning 30 years, into a cogent, absorbing narrative...This unpolished yet insightful 'More Than All the World' pulses with a raw, urgent intensity that is undeniable."
