Quote from: New York TimesThough not imitations of Golden Age hits, Tesori's songs are loving tributes that swim in and out of currents of familiarity. Orchestrated by Danny Troob for that unusually large orchestra, they sound marvelous, and yet they don't quite do the trick. It would take the brilliancy of Sondheim, especially in the lyrics -- Hwang's are bare-bones, devoid of panache -- to pull off the necessary double act here: to succeed as worthy successors to the originals and satires of them at the same time.
