“With more personality than a Peter Pan bus transporting drag queens to a gig, more personal fashion style than a F.I.T. freshman, and more voice than an entire church choir, Anthony Murphy did himself and his family (Dad, in the house, Mom watching via live stream) more than proud.”

“As the all-important Genie, Murphy, a sort of African-American doppelganger of the great Zero Mostel, is a most buoyant dancer, and brings a jazzy Cab Calloway style blended with hipster/drama queen twist to the proceedings.”
- Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun*Times
