DARREN MANGLER uncertified reviewer June 14, 2013
When a cast loves each other and the show they are in, it's super evident on stage. These four actor/ singers were engaged, playful, monster talented and crazy charismatic. This will be the one show this year I'm jealous as hell I'm not in. The songs are catchy and the story line is a writers best and worst dream. Although it's very centered around New York and the Broadway scene, the references don't matter when you see the excitement in the actors face when talking about it. The music director, Jim Blackett, is a MAJOR FIND! When you have an amazingly talented music director, it takes a show from pedestrian to professional. Blown. Away. Corey Lynn Howe did everything right. The staging was still at the right times, kinetic at the right tim... full review

[Title of Show] is an amazing theatrical piece. You will laugh, cry, and then laugh again. It's filled with the meta humor that is they style these days with TV shows and movies. That's definitely not a bad thing. The actors bring you on a journey that you can't escape, nor do you want to. By the end of the show you want the best for these characters. You feel as if you helped them write their show just by being there. It's an amazing time and definitely worth checking out. Also, Larry is hilarious.... full review

There's something intrinsically charming about [tos] show within a show (within a show?) presentation - different than other meta-musical theatre works that have come before it. More heartfelt, more honest, this production highlights the beautiful highs and lows of a love affair with the theatre. Wonderful direction and a stellar cast. Not to be missed. ... full review

Just like that famous song from our youth, "this is how you do it." Corey Lynn Howe has directed a masterpiece that showcases the extremely talent cast in a show about the process of writing and staging a hit musical. I loved the inside references that most theater people will get. I especially loved the singing (go Heather Lake!), which is a good thing, since this is a musical. This show inspired me. It was the perfect ending to my hectic Friday. [Title of Show] has a very good chance at being named Best of Fringe! Check out my full review on Examiner.com.... full review

Last night, I had the pleasure of going to see Village Idiom Productions' collaboration with Theatre Unleashed's production of [title of show], and my friend Corey Lynn Howe's directorial debut. First things first: as close, personal friends with the Director, I'm so very happy for Corey in the sheer gritted-teeth willpower and determination to make something so amazing come to life, and to do it so well. If you know her, you know it's amazing to see her achieve something she so clearly loves and even more clearly excels at. But seriously, folks, about the show. [title of show] surprised the heck out of me with its (fast!) dialog and constant elbow-nudging hilarity. And I could go on all day about the "musical written by 2 guys about 2... full review

this is what you need to do: stop reading any more reviews about [title of show] right now and go buy your ticket - particularly if you know nothing about it and don't know any of the performers. i knew nothing about this piece when i walked into the Asylum on Saturday afternoon - definitely didn't realize it was a musical - nor did i know any of the performers, so i made some assumptions while watching it that made my experience emotional and uplifting in a way i did not anticipate. so stay as ignorant as you possibly can and i'm hoping you'll enjoy it as much as i did. i love the message of the piece over-all and thought the performances were effortless & flawless. whether you already know about it or not, see it, but especially if ... full review
JON SHARPLETON uncertified reviewer June 17, 2013
Tremendous performer chemistry and a double reverse post-modern flip. Musical meta theater at its best. Very fun, very refreshing, very must-see. Yes, the male leads were fantastic, but the two female "supporting" characters were superbly executed. Exactly what a modern musical should be: less Sondheim, more honesty.... full review
JERRY CHAPPELL uncertified reviewer June 19, 2013
So- if you didn't already see- there are 30 other reviews of this show and 29 of them love it. I could beat a dead horse, but seeing this show would be far more amusing. I highly recommend it:)... full review
