Various interviews with Bob on The Prom’s success and heart are below.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


The Prom, which opened on Thursday at the Longacre Theater, is such a joyful hoot…it makes you believe in musical comedy again.”

JESSE GREEN

NEW YORK TIMES

The Prom


"There's a wonderful Canadian show called Slings & Arrows, about a Shakespearean theatre company, that was so clever it left me with pure, distilled writer-envy."

Slings & Arrows

The Drowsy Chaperone

"If you want to get some idea of what it means to be over the moon for musical comedy, pay a visit to Broadway's Marquis Theatre, where a disarming, delightful soufflé called The Drowsy Chaperone, is making a strong case for song-and-dance obsession… The Drowsy Chaperone, delivers, not only as sparkling entertainment but, on another level, as a touching tribute to those often lonely folks out there in the dark who cheer on their favorite shows and stars."


Kathryn VanArendonk

VULTURE

SLINGS & ARROWS

“As far as I’m concerned, it’s the best TV show ever made about the messy, conflicting tensions of art and commercialism…It moves me. It makes me happy to love theater, and it makes me happier to love television.”
