- Anthony Tommasini, Times, milquetoast. He's waaaaaay too polite, but read between the lines and it does seem he's unhappy with it.
- Zerbinetta (whose scholarly specialty is Viennese operetta), Likely Impossibilities, more in sorrow than in anger
- James Jorden, NY Observer, waspish.
Really, all three are saying the same thing, except that Zerbinetta and JJ just come out and say what they're thinking.
