"Never since the arrival of Sondheim and Kander and Ebb have I been so sure of a new American musical talent" ~ Sheridan Moreley, Spectator
"The Fix has more drive and raw talent than the rest of the West End Musicals put together. The future of the musical starts here" ~ David Benedict, Independent
"For those who like their musicals by Sondheim out of Kander and Ebb, this is indeed a knife-edged and courageously rock-edged score..." ~ Sheridan Moreley, Spectator
"It’s not Evita – it’s something much darker, much funnier, much better."
~ Gary Naylor, BroadwayWorld.com
"A manic musical farce about a would-be First Family so dysfunctional as to make the Borgias look like the Blairs... at best a Guys and Dolls rewritten in blood and acid." ~ Sheridan Moreley, Spectator
"a masterpiece in pace, intimacy and economy. The atmosphere is electric - an intoxicating combination of sex, politics and greed. Dana P Rowe's score is brilliant, the ensemble superbly choreographed." ~ The Politiker Review
