Commentaire:   


Presse: "In Jessie Mueller, who plays Jenna, that hard-working waitress, this agreeable if unexceptional musical... has the kind of vital ingredient any show would benefit from." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"A big-hearted but overwrought new musical about an everyday woman." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"In a rare case of an adaptation besting its source material, the new musical is an improvement on the 2007 movie it’s based on. From score to casting, book to staging, everything comes together with a deceiving ease." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"Fresh and delicious, Waitress has an excellent ratio of sweet to tart; supporting characters who provide crustiness (Dakin Matthews’s grumbly store owner) and flakiness (Christopher Fitzgerald’s loony admirer of another waitress); and cooked-to-perfection staging by Diane Paulus. The whole dish is—please forgive me—love at first bite." David Cote for Time Out New York

"Take terrific songs by Sara Bareilles, mix them to a story by Jessie Nelson that isn't too sugary, bake that with intimate, understated direction by Diane Paulus and top it off with a powerhouse performance by Jessie Mueller." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"A tasty slice of pie for those with a sweet tooth." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Sara Bareilles has written a charming score that suits the quirky material and Mueller’s dazzling voice and endearing personality." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Commentaire:   


Presse: Les critiques sont excellentes:

"Any qualms theater-lovers might have about this being a premature, whiplash-inducing revival — the original closed in 2009, after all — will vanish like frost in strong sunlight when the young cast of both hearing and deaf actors floods the stage." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"In Deaf West's exhilarating reboot of the moody and stirring 2007 Tony winner by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, the repressed and rudderless kids are lifting more than their voices. They’re also raising their hands to express themselves — and casting a whole new spell." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Michael Arden’s production for the Deaf West company skillfully integrates American Sign Language with Spencer Liff’s choreography, so the doubling of actors doesn’t get in the way of the storytelling." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"What’s good about this Spring are the enduringly powerful songs and several strong performances: Frank and Durant do lovely work, and Russell Harvard brings raw, honest emotion to a violently disapproving father. For all of the valid reservations one can have about this experiment, there’s still beauty to admire, if you’re willing to hear." David Cote for Time Out New York

"The result is an exhilarating and fluid hybrid of song, word, dance and sign — and a sheer triumph for director Michael Arden and choreographer Spencer Liff. The songs sit seamlessly in the show, often as brightly lit fantasy sequences that snap back into the grim narrative." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"It's an admirable undertaking and I wish I could get behind it. But arriving on Broadway so soon after Michael Mayer's viscerally impactful premiere production won the 2007 Tony Award for best musical, this underpowered, unexceptionally sung post-Glee version seems more of a special presentation than a wholesale reinvention." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"Deaf West awakens something new in the show, which is not so much a revival as it is a reinvention — although for the next 15 weeks of its limited run at the Brooks Atkinson Theater, the house should remain nearly packed with those happy to find the Duncan Sheik-scored rock opera back on Broadway in any form." Peter Debruge for Variety

Commentaire:   


Presse: "It’s so aggressively bubbly it gives you the hiccups. Or do I mean acid reflux? In any case, it’s not easy to swallow." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"In the end, the show is a harmless diversion. But this is Broadway. 'It Shoulda Been You' shoulda been better." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"These talented, hard-working actors are a joy to watch, and almost make up for the drecky writing. Almost." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"It is also very adeptly handled in both the writing and the performances, transforming standard sitcom fare into a rollicking farce with a heart-warming message." Roma Torre for NY1

"Though the cake is stale, they decorate it well. It shoulda been better but it coulda been worse." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Even if you see many of the jokes coming a long way off, the sheer talent on display in "It Shoulda Been You" is worth snagging an invitation to this comically inventive wedding." Jennifer Farrar for The Associated Press

"It’s the sort of show that practically redefines the term 'guilty pleasure." Frank Scheck for The Hollywood Reporter

"With impeccable instincts for finding their laughs, Hyde Pierce and his terrific ensemble players make this hokum seem terribly funny." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Commentaire:   


Presse: The musical opened to scathing notices. The New York Times wrote "If the choreography at times defies gravity, the show itself may be the most earthbound work Ms. Tharp has produced. Even as the dancers seem to fly, Mr. Dylan’s lyrics are hammered, one by one, into the ground." Star-Ledger said "Don't be surprised if "The Times They Are A-Changin'" will be movin' out of the Atkinson fairly soon." and Journal News printed "The music is literalized, flattened, turned into pre-digested Broadway mush."
