It's going to be real interesting to see what the critics think.

I don't think it's really going to matter what the critics think.

Because shows aren't actually reviewed on Opening Night

Critics don’t attend opening night. They go to shows leading up to it and post reviews the night of. Most are posted after the show ends, but it os fairly sporadic.

Why does the NJ.com review have a picture of a random baby?

The age you need to be to not notice this show’s faults?

I believe that's the baby who made its Broadway debut, crying throughout a chunk of the show, Tuesday night.

I count two negative, rest mixed to positive.

Not as bad as I thought.

"This new Frozen is brisk and entertaining for most of its two hours and 20 minutes."

It isn't even 2hrs long. Unless they are counting intermission which wouldn't even take them to 2hr and 20 minutes.

Last night Act 1 was 1hr and 5 minutes and Act 2 was 50 minutes.

Aladdin did it better.

To be honest, I kinda expected Frozen to get better reviews than Spongebob, just because I know how much people love the movie. Though at the same time, I can't say that I'm surprised that it didn't. As much as I enjoyed Frozen, I just felt that they didn't do enough to make the show different from the movie. This show could've been much better than what it is now. It just leaves me wanting more than what it's giving me.

How many people really listen to what critics say?

For me if I want to see a show I don't go reading what people find wrong with it.

If the puppet for Sven is getting the highest praises, that’s a problem...
