"POST NO BILLS: The Songs of Joshua H. Cohen, directed by MK Lawson and performed by six recent NYU grads, is full of smart lyrics and engaging melodies. Songs about love and feelings hit the DNA of everyone, including old guys like me. Mating, dating-- in song. Cohenís lyrics hit the brain as well-- they are cleverer than most of what Iíve heard in years, and itís a real pleasure to experience smarts (and original melodies) of this level. Songs like "Everybodyís Perfect but Me" show Cohen to be a major talent. Someone should shape this great stuff into a show with a book and put it on Broadway." ó Richmond Shepard, Lively Arts
