Reviews: Critics Sounds Off on THE LONELY FEW at The Geffen Playhouse

Geffen Playhouse production of the world premiere musical The Lonely Few is now on stage. Let's see what the critics have to say!

Review: THE LONELY FEW at The Geffen Playhouse

Zoe Sarnak’s score rocks. It sounds at times like Blondie or the B-52s (I like the B-52s so that comparison is not a dig here), but is so intrinsically connected to the emotional arch of the story being told that it soars like a musical theatre score should.
