"...Like the strip, Snoopy!!! The Musical is entertaining enough, but depends way too much on playing minor variations on the same old ideas. Frank Pullen's Journeymen Theater production offers a cast of likable, high-spirited teenage actors who bring a charming spontaneity to the material. But that doesn't make up for forgettable songs and a poorly organized script that never gets around to telling a story--or even, despite the show's title, settling on a character to highlight."

"...Snoopy!!! is a plotless revue featuring mostly peppy songs by the lyricist Hal Hackady and composer Larry Grossman (best known for his fascinating Harold Prince-directed Broadway flops like Grind and A Doll's Life ) . Schulz's comic strips inspire the book, which are a variety of short-attention-span vignettes leading up to an observational or play-on-words punch line."

"...The strongest voices of the cast belong to the ladies, and what a trio Aurora Adachi-Winter, Cat Alter and Killeen McClowry make. Watch the vigilance Ms. Alter summons as Sally defends her clothes hanger sculpture project at Show and Tell and you'll want her on your legal defense team. Ms. McClowry belts the daylights out of "Poor Sweet Baby" as the lovelorn Peppermint Patty, while Ms. Adachi-Winter's Lucy is still one crab you'll love. Together, the girls' "I Know Now" is hilarious and beautifully sung. "Snoopy" is a nice intro for young people to the delights of musical theatre and a terrific showcase for a talented and energetic cast to work their magic."
