Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...As someone who grew up listening to house music and hearing stories from my parents about how great the night scene was in the 80s, I thought the play captured the soul of the period perfectly. Every song made me feel nostalgic for a time I've only ever experienced through stories, which is what is expected from a period piece. I only wish UTC had placed as much emphasis on the topics that deserved more modulation as it did on the dance numbers."
