Enchanting, Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Original

See it if You are looking for an original show that will sweep you off your feet. Songs you won't forget, expect to laugh and cry.

Don't see it if You don't want to go all the way down to the south stree seaport museum, or prefer big budget Broadway shows.

"There’s lot of blubber here. Some of the blame lies with the waterlogged narration. The songs, mostly marvelous, and yet too numerous, echo the tones and emotions of the tale rather than telling it. Ms. Carlson’s staging doesn’t use the room or the audience as much as it might. Still, the arrangements are appealing, the musicianship impressive and the performances energetic and mostly alluring. If “SeaWife” can trim its sails and its excesses, it should be shipshape in no time."

"Perhaps the production’s only major issue is overlength—nearly three hours—and there are lags in the second act. Nevertheless, the show’s enchanting score and impressive musicianship make it easy to roll with the running time. 'SeaWife' creates a lovely balance of music and stagecraft that provides a most unique spectacle."

"Once under way, the production is soon at sea in the close quarters of Jason Sherwood's maritimey-bric-a-brac set, hauling in clichés faster than a trawling net scoops fish. Luckily, every plot twist is an occasion for the band the Lobbyists to jam out to another original number. The music is by far the best part of this soggy melodrama."
