Don't miss this show !!!!,
Aug 15, 2006
reviewer: from New York
Saw this show on Sunday afternoon. It was hysterical !! Felt like we never stopped laughing the whole time. Other times we were crying as we were laughing so hard the tears came down our cheeks. Martin Short is so talented and his supporting cast is just as good as he is. Lyrics, dancing and songs were soooo funny and at times touching. Can't wait for the cast recording to come out. Added to our enjoyment was the fact that Nathan Lane was the celebrity guest. He was crying on stage as he was laughing so hard during the Jiminiy Glick segment he was involved in. Go and get tickets as they are going to be gone once it opens. You won't regret it.

I knew it would be good; it beat my expectations. . .,

. . . and was great. Marty is a standout and his cast of players could each star in their own "one person show." The writing is cleaver and witty and Short's delivery is tops. It is a comfortable show in that you feel at ease to roar with laughter. Colin Quinn was Glick's guest at Saturday's performance. He seemed to have as much fun as the audience. Stage door fans who waited to meet Marty and the cast were not disappoined. Short was gracious and patiently signed autographs and posed for pictures. The show is a physical one and must take its toll on the cast, yet they welcomed the applause at the stage door. I have seen many other Broadway performers with less fame avoid the attention of the fans. I know some theatergoers feel that a one-man show doesn't pack the enjoyment that the full-blown musical does. This show will change your mind. Marty closes at the end of the year. A trip to see his show would make a great holiday gift.Marty, fame DOES become you!!

Martin Short is simply one of the funniest and most creative talents around today. Loved this show. A non stop laugh from beginning to end. The cast was also perfect and very talented. The ensemble was witty, and seemed to enjoy every minute of the show. It showed!!!
