Commentaires : The musical had a very short off-Broadway run in February 2003 and received an unenthusiastic response. The music and lyrics were recognised as complex and sophisticated, but it was generally felt to be self-consciously arty. However, LaChiusa’s talent is obvious and he is being spoken of as a natural successor to Stephen Sondheim.
Presse : "A LATTER DAY ANSWER TO 'COMPANY!' Adapted from two stories by Deborah Eisenberg, this stylish new musical has the jazzy, noirish feel of what is conventionally called the symphony of the city. As the wistful Charlotte, Jennifer Laura Thompson is charming. Her burnished voice lopes with bluesy suppleness through Mr. LaChiusa's swirling melodies."
— Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"A BRILLIANT NEW MUSICAL! LaChiusa's music ranges freely over many pop forms. Bruce Coughlin's bright orchestrations aptly unify the score's lively, eclectic sounds!"
— Michael Sommers, The Star-Ledger

"WONDERFUL WRITING AND WONDERFUL PERFORMING! LACHIUSA COMES EQUIPPED WITH TREMENDOUS TALENTS, WHICH FLOW FREELY HERE: His lyrics are wittily pointed and elegantly formed; his music inventively bends standard melodic patterns into unexpected shapes; he is sharp with observation, generous with compassion, and able to evoke volumes of experience in the flick of a single phrase.

"Director Graciela Daniele has given Little Fish a cleanly sculpted shape and a jittery post-911 atmosphere that are emphatically right for it.

"YOU COULDN'T FIND A MORE ENGAGING CAST! Thompson and Harriell are charming; DeLaria brings the monster roommate appalling conviction; and the supporting roles feature distinctive performers like Hugh Panaro, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Eric Jordan Young, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ken Marks."
— Michael Feingold, The Village Voice

"New York can be angst-inducing, especially for single women looking for love, trying to get in shape and giving up smoking all at the same time. Little Fish, the endearing new musical by Michael John LaChiusa at Second Stage Theatre, tells the story of Charlotte (Jennifer Laura Thompson), a young woman from upstate trying to find herself in the big city. Along the way, she tries to forget her evil ex-boyfriend and sleeps with her best friend's man. See it with a group of girlfriends."
