February 26th, 2014

"There is a story of sorts, which centers on a dress rehearsal for the opening night of the 1969 season and a love triangle...However this conflict is not developed enough to make a major contribution to the show and might easily be eliminated. What does make this show spectacular is the many wonderful song and dance numbers."

"It has the oomph to become successful...The show is primarily a revue, with little book--one that could be done without altogether. It is the effervescent, revue-formatted display of talent that makes the production...Shows like this usually had a comic, and talented, very funny Lee Summers filled the bill as affable Slappy Black, with a repertoire of corny vaudeville-style jokes that he delivered with expert timing and to much laughter."

"Neither time nor nostalgic memories of a by-gone era, however vivid or hazy, can overshadow the brilliance of this new musical...A full-fledged, razzle-dazzle riveting 'book' musical...The show recreates a time that was with a brilliant blend of rousing original finger-snapping songs along with music of the 1960s...'On Kentucky Avenue' is a vivid example of what Broadway should and can be."
