"Each number is a new invitation to lose yourself in emotional overwhelm. This is a work suffused with angst and pain, and the performances give new meaning to hits like Fallin', Empire State of Mind and Girl on Fire". - Guardian
"new invitation to lose yourself in emotional overwhelm"
"Leave it to Alicia Keys, the writer of evocative songs like "Fallin'" and "If I Ain't Got You," which make everyday emotions feel like momentous revelations, to make a New York local see Midtown anew." - New York Theatre Guide
"Grounded in reality, but with anthemic melodies soaring overhead, it is easily the best new musical at the Public since Hamilton." - TheatreMania
"it is easily the best new musical at the Public since Hamilton."
"Moon's voice is textured but full-throated, endlessly exciting and bursting with character as it defines a song's melody. In short, it makes Bean's casting she has, dare I suggest, never sounded better perfect." - Theatrely
"With stunning harmonies and the infusion of on-stage pianists, guitarists and drummers, the show feels like watching a glorious tapestry come together." - Variety
