DAVE EGAN certified reviewer June 13, 2015
A charming and clever retelling of the Garden of Eden tale, where Satan conjures up another possible mate for Adam (Yves, not Eve), putting a wrinkle in God's plan. Some very talented actors with great voices are given wonderful musical material to work with. The script has a few holes in it that I hope will be worked out before the production moves to a theater in NoHo post-Fringe. But if you can overlook that minor issue, you'll be entertained by a fun story and terrific songs, presented by actors who give it their all. Oh, and they're not wearing too much while all this is going on!... full review

It was a wonderful play. The music and all the songs were great. All the actors sang with beautiful voices and moved and danced so joyfully. There wasn't a boring moment. The Devil played by Wes Nathanson was especially terrific. Karen Wolff ... full review

Terrific music, and the very talented cast has some great voices. Clever premise, but the book didn't fully deliver. Anachronistic moments in "period" pieces can be funny, but there still should be some internal logic. This was just all over the place. Overall, could use some tightening and stronger direction, but still worth it for the music and the performances. ... full review

Satan steps out first to establish his prominence and, in truth, without his presence (and the great buck-and-wing he shares with God midway through, which deserved an instant encore)it would be a much less entertaining piece of Biblical whimsey. Propelled by a simple, charming song score (like THE FANTASTICKS) the introduction of Steve into the story ("adapted" from Genesis) is cute and sometimes self-consciously jokey, but remarkably Retro in its attitudes. It's moving directly into a two-month run (in NoHo, NOT WeHo) and will probably do very well indeed. The cast is all strong and very well-chosen---but before they embark on a long-term regular run Adam&Eve&Steve would be well-advised to head for tanning salon---right NOW. ... full review

I loved this show! The songs, the choreography, the performances - all great. It definitely took me through the tour of emotions, and felt tight and economical. Time flew during this thoroughly enjoyable show. I plan to see it again, and bring friends, to when it opens in NoHo.... full review
