Los Angeles Times - Somewhat Recommended

"...Despite above-the-title placement, Hal Linden, Ken Page and Cathy Rigby do not occupy the movie's Lemmon, Matthau and Ann-Margret roles. Don't be disappointed, though. They're onstage a lot, and the leads are strong, recognizable players: Mark Jacoby, Gregory North and Leslie Stevens."

LA Splash - Recommended

"...GRUMPY OLD MEN is a pleasant, feel-good musical which will bring a smile to each face in the audience. Characters are sweet and lovable, and the music is upbeat and cheery. Even with some slightly raunchy scenes, this is definitely a charming show for the family (PG, please). It’s also a delightful preview of the coming holiday season."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...No matter your mood upon arrival, expect to exit the La Mirada Theatre For The Performing Arts with the broadest of smiles on your face when you see the feel-good musical that's been made from the Jack Lemmon-Walter Matthau movie smash Grumpy Old Men."

Hollywood Progressive - Recommended

"...Indeed, sexuality and love are important themes in Grumpy - and the lack of same could well account for the characters' grumpiness. If you hadn't made love for 19 years you might be a bit on the grouchy side, too. However, friendship and community are also important themes in this small town U.S.A. musical comedy where, when it comes to the matter of race, the residents are color blind. For a crowd pleaser Grumpy is unexpectedly heartwarming, moving and at all times, highly enjoyable. It seems guaranteed to make theatergoers feel much less grumpy than when they first entered the theater and even - dare I say? - glad to be alive when they leave the La Mirada. And what a treat to see Barney Miller live - even without Detectives Wojcieowicz, Yemana, Fish and the rest of the 12th precinct's squad room!"

"...Despite all the talent and professionalism behind the scenes and on stage, Grumpy Old Men is a musical that has yet to know why it's singing."

Haines His Way - Somewhat Recommended

"...Mark Jacoby and Gregory North do a fine job as the cantankerous title characters and are in good voice but, as written, there is not much they can do to make their characters realistic. Also in great voice is Broadway legend Ken Page who, as store owner Chuck, undoubtedly has the score’s best song, “An Angel”. It great to see living legends Hal Linden and Cathy Rigby, although the former is stuck with most of the “dick” jokes while the latter is given dialogue that would puzzle Rose Nyland. Grumpy Old Men The Musical should sink under the Minnesota ice."

The Fume of Sighs - Highly Recommended

"...This is a funny show with humor that is mostly meant for adults, so you may want to get a babysitter for your young ones. Everyone in the cast is talented, although much of the attention goes to the main performers, starting with 88-year old Linden (who happens to deliver most of the saucy lines). Rigby, whom you may remember from her years as a gymnast, is also a favorite of the crowd, as is Page, whose voice you may know as Oogie Boogie’s in Disney’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Add to that the spectacular voices of Jacoby, North, and Stevens (all of whom are returning artists at La Mirada), and you have every reason to expect an excellent show."
