Reviews

REVIEWS

"The tale about overcoming odds is surprisingly touching." — Time Out New York

"The biggest and best best surprise of the season so far...puts the nerds next to the popular kids as they join forces to prove their worth to the world. Victoria Martin leaves audiences both laughing and cheering." — NYTheatre.com 

“A sweet, surprisingly shrewd slice of high school life. Playwright Kathryn Walat does for math what Rachel Sheinkin did for spelling in the surprise hit “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” She makes a nerdy passion exciting, even romantic.” – San Diego Union-Tribune

“In her evocation of the characters striving for some semblance of normality, connection, and acceptance, Walat surprises the audience with many sweet and touching moments.” - NYTheatre.com
