"Friedman’s production sparkles...
Tim Jackson’s choreography has wit"
"Somehow director Maria Friedman and choreographer Tim Jackson fill the stage with pods of movement and activity as loopy, tantalizing, and exacting as the lyrics"
The Daily Beast
"But the real stars are director Maria Friedman and choreographer Tim Jackson...an acutely focused exploration of friendships gone awry, unspoken love, and misguided obsession with success."
"Piercing and refreshingly painful...Tim Jackson’s loosey-goosey choreography and the jazzy orchestrations of Sondheim’s longtime colleague Jonathan Tunick provide buoyant relief."
The New York Sun
"Tim Jackson’s choreography—more musical movement than dance—adds just the right kick."
"“The Blob,” a song about hangers-on chasing the latest style (like Frank), cleverly showcases the busy ensemble."
New York Theatre Guide
"Tim Jackson’s snappy choreography with music directed by Alvin Hough, Jr. keeps the audience merrily rolling along"
"Intoxicating. Revelatory. They said it couldn't be done. But they've done it. And not only merrily. Magnificently"
"It's a Hit"
New York Stage Review
"A masterpiece. I watch director Maria Friedman's stunning, revelatory production through a kind of moist-eyed haze, mind racing, heart beating and all that stuff."
"Thanks to superlative casting and canny direction, this elegant, emotionally searching production may be the finest Merrily you'll ever see."
"Inspired. It's definitely been worth the wait. A stellar, musically sumptuous affair"
