"Lamb's has created a rollicking new musical adaptation of the romantic farce. Under the shrewdly paced direction of Robert Smyth the cracketjack cast, in Jeanne Reith's delightfully gaudy costumes, moves and speaks as a true ensemble. The over-the-top piece is a guilty pleasure, stuffed with jokes filled with pleasurable performances."
- Anne Marie Welsh ( San Diego Union-Tribune )
"Big, bold, Borscht Belt humor, and chock-full of broad slapstick."
- Pam Kragen ( North County Times )
"The talent is terrrific, with commendable comic chops, superb singing and an outstanding 4-piece band. The set, lighting and effects are first rate, and the costumes in kaleidoscopic colors are gorgeous."
- Pat Launer ( Jazz88 Center Stage )
