STAGEBUDDY: ...the show feels like it has the makings of a full-blown Broadway musical, with wonderful talent and great music, direction, and choreography. The show stars Emily McNamara as Cookie Conwell, a leggy blond who, despite a narrow waist, claims to have been addicted to chocolate her whole life. McNamara is known for a wide range of stage and cabaret work that includes her MAC-nominated "Mostly Sondheim" show. Her rendition of Cookie is spot-on funny ó think a more glamorous version of Phoebe from Friends.
The music is fun and wonderful, and includes such numbers as "Chocoholics Anonymous", "Death by Chocolate", and "The Secret Life of Cupcakes", all wonderfully performed by the supporting cast that includes two talented women and two equally talented men. There is the raven-haired beauty Laura D'Andre, the beautiful and talented Talene Monahon, who has a great solo number in "Kids Again", Andrew Pandaleon, who shines as a hip black-and-white cookie in one scene, and veteran talent James Patterson, an obvious triple threat.
