"Like 'The Producers' (with Soviets filling in for Nazis), 'Iron Curtain' simultaneously parodies and pays loving homage to old-school musicals, and deserves to be as big a hit. It's springtime for Khrushchev!"
-The Village Voice

"A gleefully ridiculous new musical... 'Iron Curtain' is working the formula of 'The Producers' and other big-time shows."
-The New York Times

"The fun flies as fast and furious as its dancers' tapping feet... Mills's ever-clever lyrics are, as always, worth savoring... Weiner's music effortlessly combines the glitz and glamour of Golden Age Broadway with scintillating Soviet song stylings..."
-Talkin' Broadway

"A deliciously ditzy book by Susan Dilallo, song after melodic song by Stephen Weiner with devilishly clever lyrics by Peter Mills, and talent galore to sing and dance up a storm."

"'Iron Curtain' is a heart-shaped box of theatrical candy for every fan of the genre... There is something in this show for everyone to enjoy: clever historical references, clever theatrical references, silly jokes, groan-inducing puns, and delightful songs... If you want to see the future of American theatre, head over to the West End Theatre."

"The casting is terrific and carries the day... there isn't a bad song in the bunch... when all's said and done, 'Iron Curtain' comes out smelling like a nice, Red rose."
-New Theatre Corps, Theater Talk
