GARY BOOHER certified reviewer June 08, 2016
The star is Dan Sugi's music with some clever songs by mostly talented singing performers, while the script sometimes drifts and sags. The who-dunnit was too obvious early in the first act. A new book with a tighter parody script would better feature the songs. If it is funny the lack of mystery doesn't really matter. And it is too tame to be tagged for ages 21+.... full review

RICHARD GRAVES certified reviewer June 09, 2016
It's not every day one has the opportunity to see a 40's detective story in a musical format! It's a lot of fun! The actors do a fine job. Good music, singing, and costumes all contribute to the 1940's New York setting of the piece. I enjoyed it!!! ... full review

I have seen most of these performers in many different roles and genres and I am consistently struck by the magnitude of their individual (and collective) talents and their creativity. I am of the opinion that theatre, especially in the incubator and showcase of the likes of the Hollywood Fringe, should innovate, challenge, take risks, set the bar high and then raise it. I think this offering from Sugi Productions hits that mark and it will continue to do so. ... full review

The highlight of Sugi's musical numbers is Roger's final solo "Then They're Gone" which Nathan Ondacek delivers through his heartbreak at falling for his best friend's gal. Being the honorable guy he is, there is a never a question he will ultimately do the right thing. And be sure to chat up Nick Rubando (Jones/Reporter) when you first arrive as he strolls around the audience to create the 1940s world into which you have stepped. Tip your fedora, lift your martini to toast, and get ready for Dan Sugi’s musical mystery world premiere where everyone can have a really good time, even though New York City is quite a smelly place. ... full review
