Encore!

Critics Consensus

While it often feels more like a dress rehearsal, Encore! has just enough charm to keep theater lovers in their seats -- though everyone else may duck out at intermission.

Critic Reviews for Encore! Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

A well-made, clever show that becomes more about how we change (and how much we don't) as we go from high school to adulthood.

Were it not for the evidence of a shared history on display, the adults playing kids in Annie may as well be strangers, and that lets some of the air out of Encore's intriguing setup.

Top Critic

The moments of emotional depth and humanity are rare - though sometimes quite touching - and the moments of cringing and overproduction are plentiful.

I am quite in love with the Kristen Bell-produced "Encore!," a machine for dredging up deep feelings, in which the cast of a high school musical reunites after many years to stage it again.

It's a sweet idea in theory, until it's actually happening, and then it just seems creepy.

Nov 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The results are a joy to behold, and there won't be a dry eye in the house.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a smoky fireplace of a reality show that radiates warmth and consistently caused my eyes to water. Like high school, though, it's easy to generalize about but its reality is far more complicated.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Sweet nostalgia on warm, lovable musical reality show.

Nov 12, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Stream it if you're a big musical theater geek or did drama in high school or college.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Encore! is guilty of orbiting the cliches of theater as an accepting "family," and that as painful as high school is, it all gets better eventually. But it also subverts its own messaging.

Nov 15, 2019 | Full Review…

After watching the first two episodes of Encore!, one thing is abundantly clear: Disney has a tear-jerking blast of family-friendly fun on its hands.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Despite the shortcomings of Encore's format, it's clear that each performer is having a blast reconnecting with their past, and it's fun to get a peek into the personalities and interpersonal dynamics that motivate these former co-stars.

Audience Reviews for Encore!: Season 1

  • Nov 23, 2019
    This show is pure wish fulfillment, which is 100% in line with Disney's brand, but did not land well with me. It's a show about theater nerds getting to relive 'the good old days' which is a very sad and cringey concept to me. I hope others enjoy this show, but it's aggressively not for me.
