'Fly By Night' Off Broadway Review: Two Sisters and a Sandwich Maker

'Fly By Night' Off Broadway Review: Two Sisters and a Sandwich Maker
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
BROADWAY REVIEW

A romantic triangle involving a Brooklyn deli worker and two sweet sisters, one seeking stage stardom and the other a nice drudge, comprises the essential story for “Fly By Night,” a new musical currently at Playwrights Horizons.

Set in the mid-1960s and culminating in the famous Northeast Blackout, “Fly By Night” is a musical study in spiritual connectivity. Yet in spite of its thematic ambitions, this intermittently enjoyable musical – which clocks in at well over two hours in running time -- turns out to be a curiously trifling endeavor.

It serves, at least, to confirm that co-writers Will Connolly, Michael Mitnick and Kim Rosenstock (who conceived the musical) are talented folk, even though their mildly quirky show doesn’t add up to much beyond passing entertainment.
