Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Los Angeles Times

    The performances have heart, and a sorrowful tenderness courses through the self-described "fairy tale," even at its kitschiest.

  • 50

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    A gay tragedy in three acts and more than a dozen excellent songs, House of Boys conveys an emotional honesty that overrides its dated style.

  • 40

    Variety Ronnie Scheib

    Thesping is more engaging than accomplished, as Anderson's constant smile cracks around the edges and Northover's dourness is a bit overdone.
