    Demanding, and Losing, Some Pounds of Flesh

    Charles Isherwood

    May 9, 2012: Too much artificial sweetener has been stirred into “Fat Camp,” a new musical at the American Theater of Actors about teenagers singing their way to slimmer waistlines. This sentimental cartoon hopscotches through the usual teen-angst territory in its depiction of a camp full of misfits confronting familiar anxieties — the dawning and crushing of crushes, the miseries inflicted by the popular kids — as they try to avoid temptations their slimmer peers don’t have to worry about, like candy bars.

    ‘Fat Camp’ plus-size entertainment

    Frank Scheck

    May 1, 2012: ‘Glee” meets “Hairspray” in “Fat Camp,” a diverting musical about a group of overweight teens who find love and friendship at Camp Overton, where “You’ve got nothing to gain and everything to lose!”

    Fat Camp: A New Musical (2012)

    Keith Staskiewicz

    May 4, 2012: There's a certain strain of Off Broadway show defined by a super-specificity of topic and a clappy-happy vagueness of style, usually sporting the title of Something: The Musical. The subject doesn't matter (it could be anything from The Jerry Springer Show to a bowel obstruction with an intermission) as long as it has a full tracklist of guitar-driven theater anthems, a few too many smoke machines, and a shiny self-reflective veneer of genre awareness. I'd say it wouldn't be long until we see Musical: The Musical, but isn't that pretty much what Smash is?

    Fat Camp

    Brian Scott Lipton

    April 30, 2012: The committed work of a troupe of truly talented young actors brings much needed heft to Fat Camp, an always amiable, periodically sparkling new musical, now at the American Theatre of Actors under Casey Huchion's fast-moving direction.

    Fat Camp the Musical Weighs in! My Review

    Michael Musto

    April 29, 2012: Fat Camp is a silly, exuberant musical that comes at you like an ice cream truck and doesn't slow down.
