Featured Reviews For Amazing Grace


'Amazing Grace' theater review - amNY
On the heels of President Barack Obama breaking into "Amazing Grace" during a eulogy, a well-meant but embarrassingly uninteresting musical depicting the life saga of the hymn' writer has opened. Watching it, you keep thinking, "How in the world did this get to Broadway?"...Resembling an old-fashioned adventure novel, "Amazing Grace" is packed with changes of fortune, sentimentality and one-dimensional characters. Smith's mushy, forgettable songs sound like the work of someone who loves "Les Miz" but has little talent of his own...Too bad they couldn't just sing "Amazing Grace" at the start and save everyone 2 1/2 hours.

Theater review: Spirited musical 'Amazing Grace' on Broadway leaves you hissing at the hero - Associated Press
A serious musical with epic themes doesn't come to Broadway that often. The refreshing new show "Amazing Grace" admirably covers slavery, abolition, sedition and spiritual themes in 1740s England and Africa, complete with spirited acting and inspirational ballads and anthems...A charismatic Josh Young opens the show strongly...Erin Mackey sings captivatingly, wearing a sweet, saintly air as Mary Catlett...It's a long time coming, but the title song is performed in the beautiful and emotional finale. By then we've been on quite a journey with these characters, and the hymn resonates with relevance and hope, both for their personal stories and the still-uneasy state of racial relations today."
