"...Add to that some retrograde racial stereotypes, and the show came across as a total loss. Now it's back, playing at a different venue and featuring some new cast members--most notably the incredibly lithe Tanner Hussar as one of the gentrifiers, the incredibly strong-voiced Kadejah One as a motherly procurer, and satyr-like Andrew Sklar as the narrator. The transformation is kind of amazing. Racial stereotypes are still in place and every bit as obnoxious as they ever were. Still, if you can stomach them and focus on the company's skill and playfulness, there's a good time to be had."

"...Chris D’Ariezo’s loving ode to the music of the ‘80s isn’t aimed at the serious theatre patron looking for a complicated plot, deep subtext and three-dimensional characters. This fun-loving show, filled with stereotypes and bombastic musical numbers is a good-natured wink and a nod to a more innocent time when America was challenged by the titillation of raunch and excess glam rock. Audiences who want “More Than Words” should brave the “Shadows of the Night” and head over to the Bank of America Theatre ready to “Cum On Feel the Noise.” For many, this show is simply “Heaven.”"
