“An eccentric, scrappy new musical...The show is an astute representation of a searching tween’s inner world...The consequences of Addison’s efforts to graduate from Twitter feuds to real-life action remain underexplored, and most of the songs are so short that there is barely time to appreciate Lotz’s tuneful, post-Michael Friedman sensibility...Still, despite its imperfections, the sweet, sui generis 'Red Emma and the Mad Monk' qualifies as a late-summer discovery.”
