Quotes & Highlights

“The cast are sublime … Justin Love is a deliciously enjoyable musical comedy that goes out on a limb with its brave take on happiness and true love. It’ll make you want to stand up and cheer.” — (five of five stars)
“That nasty publicist, hilariously played as a modern Eve Arden by Alet Taylor, is the most infectiously awful character in musical theater since Mama Rose. As the lovebirds, Adam Huss as Justin and Tyler Ledon as Chris have wonderful chemistry … the entire supporting cast is talented, fearless, and incredibly committed … a great Hollysood-style love story.” —Backstage (critic’s grade: A)
