Now, I know Ben Brantley hates all things peppy and fun, but we really disagree on Leap of Faith. I expected this once I saw he was reviewing it.
Songs are by Alan Menkin, who has committed the sin of working for Disney. It doesn't take long for the reviewer to trash Newsies as well (songs by Alan Menkin).
Anyway, here is my review (which I LOVED the performances and thought the story was okay) and here is NY Times review in which Ben Brantley hates everything about it.
