"Fans of the original 1992 movie at least will be pleased and relieved to know that the musical sticks pretty closely to the contours of the story played out on screen.”
"But there’s still an undeniable charge to hearing many of the songs she made famous: “I’m Every Woman,” “How Will I Know,” “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “The Greatest Love of All” and (of course) that greatest hit of all, “I Will Always Love You” — still the best-selling single ever by a woman.”
“Cox, a top R&B artist in her own right, has serious pipes and a good feel for the proud-but-vulnerable Rachel, as well as convincing chemistry with the wry, stolid Mills as Frank.”
