NY TIMES Review of Cloned! The Musical

"Melanie Beck’s Izzy, Wally’s best friend and colleague, is the emotional center of the show. She’s anguished that Wally doesn’t see that he’s the one for her — and not just because he’s distracted, fending off his mentor Dr. Marshall (John Alban Coughlan) and his landlord Mr. Choi (Tony Romero) as they plot to steal his invention."

TALKIN BROADWAY Review of Cloned! The Musical

"Cloned!, with its exuberant cast, tuneful score (music by Adam Spiegel), clever and often quite funny lyrics (Dan Wolpow), and a book (by Mr. Wolpow and Jacey Powers) that could very well have been written by the eternally high Fizz, is a delight from start to finish — even if it doesn’t make a lot of sense...Kudos to director Tom Wojtunik and the very talented cast for pulling this off so splendidly. Cloned! is definitely ready for its close-up and in prime shape to be picked up for a solid run after the Festival ends."
