  • The Cast album of the Musical that was presented at The York Theatre in New York.

“IRRESISTIBLE MELODIES. A perky little musical! With a sprightly, savvy score by Paul McKibbins, smarty-pants lyrics by BT McNicholl… the show as a whole makes frivolity a virtue. Jean Louisa Kelly, who performs with fetching pizazz, and Jonathan Dokuchitz who is excellent, sing beautifully together. Mr. McKibbins has a pleasing, consonant touch with a song. His main tools are sweetness and pep and fine sense of how to pay homage without actually borrowing. His songs are as innocently seductive as a pretty schoolgirl batting her eyelashes. They are complemented by Mr. McNicholl’s lyrics, which are often rhymed with a wink and tend to be character affirming in a comic vein. And they mainly strike the same giddy notes as Mr. McNicholl’s direction.<P> “”The IT Girl””… is a very pleasant surprise.
— Bruce Weber, New York Times

Let me ENTHUSIASTICALLY RECOMMEND A TOTAL CHARMER of a Jazz Age musical. It may be small in scale, but it’s HUGELY EFFECTIVE. The new musical has a neat, very witty book by Michael Small and BT McNicholl, brisk staging by McNicholl himself, and lovely performances by a madly protean cast. This is the Off-Broadway musical at its traditional… best. NOT TO BE CASUALLY MISSED.
Clive Barnes, New York Post”
