"Not everything has stood the test of time — there are moments that feel flat or contrived. And while the music sometimes fizzes, Marvin Hamlisch’s score is not a truly great one. Still, the rhythm of the show is seductive. Its best sequences are exhilarating or raw, and the finale is majestic. Running at two hours with no interval, it’s a tight and entertaining celebration of physicality — and of life."
