Masterful, Profound, Great writing, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if I saw this with Tyne Daly, whereas my husband saw it with Ethel Merman. We both raved about the acting, touching storyline, period costumes

Don't see it if If you prefer light and fluffy. This was very entertaining but the story ran deep

"A can't-miss when done well - as it is in the Secret Theatre's sinewy new production...Numerous impressive performances...Hamilton's agile direction glues it all together by making smart use of the wide shallow stage and blocking the numbers such that we can hear the unamplified singing over music director Liepper's band...Any tuner this monumental is likely to emerge rough around the edges in such a small space. But the chips on the polish are small and few."

"It's a big show which has been streamlined to accommodate The Secret Theatre's intimate setting, sometimes to its benefit...But, it must be admitted, that, with a smaller-than-usual cast, simple staging, and minimal scenery, some of the show's signature razzle dazzle is missed...The challenging title role is played by Mary Lauren, who overdoes the character’s awkwardness in her early scenes but makes for a stunning world-class ecdysiast."

The Queens Courier

"An outstanding cast, great songs, and strong choreography...The sugar-coated first act is filled with deliberately forced smiles and exaggerated patriotism. It sets the stage for a very bawdy, clever, and emotional second half...There is plenty of humor, with emphasis on the characters' actions and reactions...Excellent choreography and tireless musical direcion provide a high level of professionalism all evening. The many singers and dancers are energetic and creative."
