from The New York Times Review of Olympus
“With big-time musical theaters subsisting on super spectacles and secondary theaters relegated to duplicating each other's retreads, along comes Olympus on My Mind.
Here is just the sort of breezy and brainy divertissement that could serve as a restorative for parched—and jaded—musical comedy aficionados.
This 1986, Off-Broadway send-up of the ancient Amphitryon legend, which has had scores of retellings since Plautus, is a heady dose of old-style, sophisticated fun—the kind that once was called risque. Not to worry, though. Even with the scarcity of new musical material on a small scale, it is not likely that Olympus is going to suffer from over-exposure, for this musical was not manufactured for mass consumption, but for theaters that do not mind treating audiences as connoisseurs.”
