Minneapolis Critics Cheer for Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays

Billy Crystal is serving up laughs and nostalgia in 700 Sundays at the State Theatre and Minneapolis critics are raving. The Hollywood star’s solo show plays its pre-Broadway run through October 26. Before you head to the theater to see Crystal’s hilarious and poignant account of his childhood, hear what local reviewers are saying about the revival of this Tony Award-winning show. 

“Billy Crystal has crafted [700 Sundays] into a two-hour ride that runs on the steam of his unsparing observations and affection for his family—and his capacity for holding an audience.” —Graydon Royce, Star Tribune

“If you're interested in a warmly observed, exquisitely delivered chronicle of the events that shaped Crystal's life and aesthetic, this is an excellent and frequently hilarious primer that displays Crystal's virtuoso talents as mimic, comic and storyteller.” —Dominic P. Papatola, Pioneer Press

“The show is all everyone has already says it is: hilarious, poignant, touching, etc. But it offers several other rewards as well. Crystal serves up a reminder of what a consummately professional and accomplished performer he is. Crystal is 65, but his frenetic energy has a timeless quality to it.” —Tad Simons, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

“It is such a rare opportunity to catch a glimpse into the life of a Hollywood legend that is simultaneously personal, heartwarming, thoughtful, first hand, and in person—add to it the fact that I was laughing or crying (or both) the whole time.” —Stephanie Kwong, PhenoMNal Twin Cities
