Published Reviews

"...a musical that celebrates the power of pop culture with wit, verve and a killer beat."

Frank Rizzo, Variety

"If you ever rocked out on air-guitar or crooned to your hairbrush in the privacy of your own room -- and who hasn't? -- this show's for you."

Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times

"The score, never dull, pulls influence from genres as divergent as gospel, rap, rock and even the sounds of a sitar make a cameo."

Joseph Erbentraut, Edge

"Throughout, the tunes are lively and the music is loud, raucous and in your face."

Beverly Friend, Chicago Critic

"David Lindsay-Abaire's book is polished and devilishly wry."

David Cote, Time Out New York

"This show's ability to evoke commonality in such disparate groups as rock lovers and musical lovers is as admirable as it is rare."

Matthew Murray, TalkinBroadway.com
