Here's what critics have said about FUGITIVE SONGS:
“A powerful yearning weaves through the tunes that make up Fugitive Songs, a song cycle tailored to anyone who has ever thought of shucking his job, his mate or his life to start anew” -VARIETY
“Fugitive Songs is a fluid, artfully directed (Joe Calarco) song cycle that centers on the theme of flight: specifically, running away … from home, from lovers, from troubles, from whatever. The show, therefore, has a picaresque quality akin to a modern musical rendition of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. Both the theme and your introduction to these songwriters begins with a thrilling opening number called “Reasons to Run” that builds both emotionally and musically as all five members of the cast eventually sing it in gorgeously orchestrated vocal harmonies.” -TALKIN' BROADWAY - THE SIEGEL COLUMN
“The show is an excellent showcase for the five golden-voiced actors who bring its songs to life. But the real stars of Fugitive Songs are Miller and Tysen, who have created a tuneful, genuinely evocative score. Miller’s music features soaring harmonies with elements of folk rock, bluegrass and old-fashioned theatre music, and is backed up by a piano and terrific four-piece band. Tysen’s lyrics have moments of real wit (“I found drinking/No, drinking found me”) and usually walk the line between rock and theatre with ease.” -CURTAIN UP
“The folk-rock song cycle Fugitive Songs brilliantly infuses singer-songwriter cool with theatrical earnestness… cast members’ voices filling the theatre with prisms of five-part harmony.” -BACKSTAGE
