The real star of the show is the score…which sounded as enchanting at the Tabard as it did at the Haymarket, if not more so; the piece belongs in an intimate space.
— What's On Stage
Michel Legrand’s score maintains the sweep and sentiment of the romance
— The Stage
Michael Legrand’s stunning score is brought to life by Jude Obermüller’s new orchestration...there is not one moment where we question the musicality in comparison to dramatic substance, as both compliment each other brilliantly. ...With the talents and rewrites...this re-vamped version hits all the right chords and betters what was originally produced in leaps and bounds.
— Bargain Theatreland
Jude comes from a good school of harmony
— Alain Boublil
