"CRITIC'S CHOICE! Rich, Radiant, and Romantic! Thanks to Lamb's Players, audiences are being introduced to 'Light' in moving and luminous style. For those who love alluring works of theatre, it's not to be missed!"
- ( San Diego Union-Tribune )
"Definitely worth seeing! Deborah Gilmour Smyth's emotional range runs, you could say, from bass to soprano. She communicates so effectively that sure, you say, maybe there is hope after all. You hear the musical say: the impossible can continue to happen!"
- ( San Diego Reader )
"Luscious and Romantic! All the technical and design elements of the production are up to the lavish task. Season Duffy is all delighted naiveté as Clara. Chanlon Jay Kaufman is charming and irresistible. A production created with all the passion and tender loving care the show demands and deserves. It should not be missed!"
