BENJAMIN SCHWARTZ certified reviewer June 08, 2015
SONDHEIM. Let your inner musical theatre kid scream a little with excitement. Now "Marry Me A Little" is certainly not the penultimate Sondheim show. In fact, the show is mainly comprised of songs that were cut from other musicals like "Company", "Follies", "A Little Night Music", "Saturday Night", "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum" and "Anyone Can Whistle". That is not to say that these songs are bad. Not at all. This is quite the jukebox of some brilliant, gorgeous music. With that out of the way, let's dig into this particular fringe rendition of "Marry Me A Little". This show can be extremely hard to make sense of considering that there is no dialogue. With strong directing choices from Janet Miller, the actors are able to... full review

"All things bright & beautiful" would be an appropriate review of your show! Bright & incisive direction from Janet Miller to mine the layers of the songs. And beautiful voices and embodiment of characters from Jessie Withers & David Laffey. Set, lighting & costumes were simple but perfect to draw us into Apartments 2C & 3C. And I could listen to Corey Hirsch play for days. Thank you all for an afternoon of Sondheim heaven! ... full review

If you haven’t heard most of the music in Stephen Sondheim’s Marry Me A Little, it’s for good reason. The 1980 song cycle, conceived and developed by Craig Lucas and Norman René, is made up almost entirely of material left on the cutting-room floor. Fortunately, even cutting-room-floor Sondheim is better than just about anyone else, and with director Janet Miller and stars Jessie Withers and David Laffey making magic on the Lillian Theatre stage, Marry Me A Little is likely to prove one of Hollywood Fringe 2015’s most popular and acclaimed hits ...

This is the best! This is a musical revue that is truly musical, featuring excellent performers with good voices, diction, and interpretation. The songs are skillfully interwoven and channeled and take new life in the hands of these able performers and direction to create a poignant story. This is the best "Marry Me a Little" I have seen and you may ever see. Don't miss it!... full review

I LOVED THIS SHOW - The cast is outstanding, the musical director is also top-notch, as is the very-effective lighting. The producer-director, Janet Miller presents us with an inside look at the Broadway stage. The nineteen music selections in this play were cut from Steven Sondheim musicals. After seeing the show one has to wonder WHY? These songs, weaved together, tell a delightful love story. Janet Miller and company get a standing "O" from me. Thank you; Jessie Withers, David Laffey, Corey Hirsch, Rebecca Schroeder and JANET MILLER. Applause, Applause, Applause! JOEY S. ... full review

“MARRY ME A LITTLE” (Gold Medal) Stephen Sondheim’s 1980 “Marry Me A Little” is akin to one those really excellent Japanese hors-d'oeuvre bars, where nothing is served but side dishes. The comparison is applicable because “Marry Me A Little” conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman René, is a review of songs culled from Sondheim’s major works – “A Little Night Music”, “Company”, and others, as well as a number of songs cut from Sondheim’s epic “Follies”. Songs that, like everything that flows from Sondheim’s pen, are gems in and of themselves, but which have been overshadowed by such towering tuneful touchstones as “Send In the Clowns”, “Losing My Mind”, “A Comedy Tonight” and “I’m Still Here”. With “Marry Me A Little” you can he... full review

What a thrill to be in the presence of such extraordinary talent, doing Sondheim no less. As someone who doesn’t do musicals, this show was delightful. ... full review

If you love Sondheim, you're in for a treat. You better, since there is literally no dialogue. A well cast New York couple transport you into the loneliness of the big city excellently, with very little set to work with. The songs are slow paced most of the time but this works well alongside the invisible storyline. David Laffey brings huge comedy to the more upbeat songs. Overall, a very cute, enjoyable show staged around some brilliant songs. If you love musicals, grab a ticket for this one!... full review

David Laffey and Jesse Withers deliver remarkable performances, seemingly effortlessly. They lift, they lilt, they juggle through complicated lyrics making them seem like the ABCs...and they make us care for them and understand their stories in less than an hour. And for a show made up entirely of songs cut from other shows, Janet Miller weaves the story together beautifully. The simple set, lighting, and staging prove the perfect backdrop to enjoy two incredibly talented actors sing some Sondheim that will please old fans, and newcomers alike. Definitely recommend this show.... full review
