Critics have been writing love notes to Girlfriend, which features music and lyrics by Matthew Sweet and a book by Todd Almond. The San Francisco Chronicle calls the show "an exhilarating joy," while the San Jose Mercury News describes it as "a delicate gem." The San Francisco Examiner raves, "A rare treat—authentic, intimate and romantic, and, as the ‘I’ve Been Waiting’ lyric goes, ‘perfect in so many ways.’"

And the great reviews just keep coming. Here are a few more.
