Congratulations to the company of Pal Joey! Here's what the critics are saying:

“ONE OF THE BEST MUSICALS OF THE 20th CENTURY."
-The Wall Street Journal

THAT CHARMING CAD IS BACK!
STOCKARD CHANNING’s 'Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered' is a consummate bit of musical-theatre performing. MATTHEW RISCH has a sexy confidence tinged with more than a little naughtiness. MARTHA PLIMPTON is A REVELATION and A JOY TO WATCH!"
Associated Press

"YOU GOTTA GO SEE 'PAL JOEY'!
You'll come out singing the songs and dancing in the streets!"
WOR Radio

"INTOXICATING!
RICHARD GREENBERG'S adaptation is FASCINATING!
Variety

"A RARE, TRULY GROWN-UP MUSICAL
in a SCRUPULOUSLY DETAILED staging by JOE MANTELLO."
Bloomberg.com

"This RODGERS & HART gem is the most HIT-HEAVY MUSICAL you've never seen!"
