"CRITIC'S CHOICE!"
- James Hebert ( San Diego Union-Tribune )
 
"CRITIC'S PICK! Lamb's looks to have a monster hit on its hands that could run until the cows trundle home!"
- Jeff Smith ( San Diego Reader )
 
"BEST BET! Lamb’s Players Theatre celebrates its 40th anniversary with a slam-dunk, pitch-perfect show. The ensemble is spectacular, clothed in gorgeously colorful costumes, singing magnificently, dancing energetically, acting infectiously, with the backing of an outstanding band. With the inventive direction of Deborah Gilmour Smyth and the high-octane choreography of Colleen Kollar Smith, the Lamb’s show exactly what makes Meredith Willson’s brilliantly nostalgic musical a timeless American classic. Bring the whole family, and savor the first melt-in-your-mouth, cotton candy confection of the summer season."
- Pat Launer ( Center Stage )
 
"From the smartly conceived intro to the rousing finale, THE MUSIC MAN is as light as a hot air balloon hovering over a holiday picnic. Deft direction, musical direction and faultless choreography!"
- David Coddon ( SanDiego.com )
