Chicago Reader- Somewhat Recommended

"...But neither the voices here nor Jon Monteverde's score-a MIDI file-sounding, melodically nonexistent assemblage of loose parodies-really deliver on the musical requisite of musical parody. Bruce Phillips earns some legitimate laughs as Agent Smith, and Mike Gospel is a vocally strong outlier as Cypher, but the rest of the show's songs and gags wear thin well before the end of its 90-minute run time."

Chicagoland Musical Theatre- Recommended

"...With a good binary of wit and silliness, and a whole lot of reality-defying ingenuity, The One: The Matrix Parody Musical is an overall enjoyable late-night cult comedy gem - maybe your own Nebuchadnezzar crew can share a drink (or a red pill) beforehand as you put down the machines for a fun night at the theatre."
