The show currently has a 64% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with no audience reviews yet. Kristen Baldwin, for Entertainment Weekly, wrote:
Rise of the Pink Ladies is built to appeal to as vast an audience as possible, from musical buffs to neo-Gleeks to olds like me who fell in love with the original as a kid.

You said it was a ‘musical’, right?
Some 30-ish new songs by American songwriter Justin Tranter (and co-writers) have been created for the show. Expect: 1950s-style nostalgia, good melodies, solid harmonies, but with up-to-date production and instrumentation.
