Time Out says

Sixteen is not sweet for the deceptively youthful heroine of this lovely new musical by David Lindsay-Abaire and Jeanine Tesori: Played by the sixtysomething Victoria Clark, she has a disease that makes her age at a superfast rate. But two agents of disruption shake up her perspective: her aunt Debra (the unstoppable Bonnie Milligan), a hilarious gale force of chaos, and Seth (Justin Cooley), an anagram-loving classmate. Clever, touching and idiosyncratic, Kimberly Akimbo was the best new musical of 2021, when it opened at the Atlantic; now it moves to Broadway, directed once again by Jessica Stone, with an ace supporting ast that includes Steven Boyer and Alli Mauzey.
