Julia Cameron and Emma Lively's new musical, about a matchmaking psychic, never quite finds its feet in this uneven, often low-energy production. John Herrera has a strong voice and considerable stage presence as the medium, but his incompletely drawn character does little more than talk about the problems afflicting the living and dead people around him. And it's not just him. This is a show primarily about folks who talk, talk, talk. But for all that we never really get to know--or care--about them. Director Carl Occhipinti's ensemble is full of weak links. But even a cast of top-flight performers couldn't hide the flaws in a musical that lacks a strong story and compelling characters. --Jack Helbig
