Theater: Vineyard Theatre / 108 East 15th Street, New York, NY, 10003

Synopsis: 

Now. Here. This. marks the return to The Vineyard of the ultra-talented team behind the Obie Award winning musical [title of show], which premiered at The Vineyard in 2006 and went on to an acclaimed, Tony-nominated Broadway run in 2008. The six original collaborators are back and all delving into life's big questions with inimitable humor and humanity. The show explores birds, bees, reptiles, early man, ancient civilizations, and outer space. Also, loneliness, friendship, hoarding, hiding, laughing, living and dying. And middle school. And dinosaurs.

    A Place in the Universe for a Daffy Musical

    Charles Isherwood

    March 28, 2012: Good news, ardent fans of offbeat musical theater. The lovable gang from “[title of show]” is back with an endearingly goofy new diversion called “Now. Here. This.” Thin as a vanilla wafer but just as sweet, it opened on Wednesday night at the Vineyard Theater, where the same collaborators’ first show played before its little-engine-that-could chug to Broadway. (It closed pretty quickly, but still: Broadway!)

    New songs, but now not the time to hear ‘This.’

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    March 28, 2012: Back in 2006, the sly little tuner “[title of show]” made a pretty big splash. As quirky as its moniker, this was a selfreferential musical about writing and performing a musical, starring the authors.

    Now. Here. This.

    Steven Suskin

    March 28, 2012: Hunter, Jeff, Susan and Heidi are back, and if that news sends you gleefully running down to Off Broadway's Vineyard Theater, you're sure to be rewarded. If it leaves you scratching your head, lower your expectations accordingly. "Now. Here. This." is likable enough, and a couple of steps up from the quartet's cult-fave outing "[title of show]," but still doesn't quite deliver on its lofty aspirations. It's like watching someone else's group therapy session, albeit one filled with interesting personalities.

    NY Review: 'Now. Here. This.'

    David Sheward

    March 28, 2012: If you want a self-help seminar, “Now. Here. This.” is ready to help you realize your potential. The cast and creators of “[title of show],” that bubbly little gem of metatheater that journeyed from off-off to off to on Broadway, have reunited for this exploration of self-realization, friendship, family, evolution, tribal identity, and the creation of the universe. If that sounds like a rather full menu for a 90-minute musical revue, it is. There are witty and sparkling moments to savor, but the creative personnel have taken on so much material and given it such a feel-good, crunchy-granola spin that the show comes across as more of an empowerment lecture than an entertainment.

    Now. Here. This.

    Dan Bacalzo

    March 29, 2012: The creators of the breakout musical hit [title of show] -- stars Hunter Bell, Susan Blackwell, Jeff Bowen, and Heidi Blickenstaff, director/choreographer Michael Berresse, and musical director Larry Pressgrove -- have reunited for the meandering if tremendously entertaining new musical, Now.Here.This., at the Vineyard Theatre.

    Now. Hear. This.

    Matthew Murray

    March 28, 2012: "We're taking you with us on our quest for more life," explains Hunter Bell near the start of the new musical Now. Here. This., which just opened at the Vineyard Theatre. That statement is both accurate and misleading. The former because, in terms of their prowess as performers and comedians, Bell and his [title of show] cohorts Jeff Bowen, Susan Blackwell, and Heidi Blickenstaff could not possibly demonstrate more flesh-and-blood vibrancy than they do in this purported exploration of Thomas Merton's theory about seizing all the present moment has to offer. And the latter because, despite the most fervent attempts from the cast, director-choreographer Michael Berresse, and musical director Larry Pressgrove, their show would have trouble demonstrating less.
