Press for Held Momentarily
"Incredibly Talented and Promising"
"Houser's musical chooses to be a humanist beauty, a piece of musical theatre that challenges us by showing us how impatient, envious and selfish we can be, while daring to suggest that we see past i and choose empathy and kindness instead."
"It is a joy to witness the growth of a young new voice for the American musical."
"A lovely homage to New York at both at its best and worst... a wonderful reminder that, despite our differences, we’re all living in the same wonderful city."
