“CATCHY TUNES, HILARIOUS LYRICS
It's always a welcome surprise when the show ends up being endearing, funny and entertaining to both the kids and the parents in the audience. Not only did the adorable Stinky Kids not stink at all, they managed to make my whole family laugh.

"Sammy Buck and Daniel Acquisto's lyrics and music are engaging and enjoyable throughout, and in some instances, very smart. For example, Britt and her two feuding friends break into a clever number about the differences in chewing gum. On its own, it's a funny song, but it's also a thoughtful way to explore the characters' differences, and the conflict that these sometimes create."

“Acquisto's music is full of melody, bounce and joy. Buck demonstrates just from the ideas for songs that he's a lyricist with whom to be reckoned.”

2008 CRITICS PICK
“...THIS SEASON'S BEST NEW MUSICAL ISN'T ON THE GREAT WHITE WAY – IT'S IN BROOKLYN.

Never underestimate the power of a cast clearly having a ball on stage, as this one does under Igor Goldin's zippy direction; half the fun of the show comes from watching so many talented performers enjoying themselves. ...Excellent songs ...Surprisingly funny choreography. ...The cast is inspired. Who could have imagined that good times could still be had in malls?”

-Mark Peikert (Read the full review)

"‘Like You Like It’ deserves great success, too, and will wind up being produced extensively in high schools - but not for years, for a boffo Broadway run will undoubtedly come first."
