Judith Newmark, St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

"Full of incredible music, talented performances, and plenty of laughs. It’s had me feeling nostalgic ever since – for a time that I’ve never really lived through."
Steve Allen, Stage Door St. Louis:
"These four girls take to the music like fish to water. Individually they shine – collectively, they’re a force to be reckoned with."
"An entertaining escape with a soundtrack you can dance to."
"Morgan Kirner as Missy, Leanne Smith as Suzy, Chiara Trentalange as Cindy Lou and Iris Beaumier as Betty Jean have an infectious way with a couple of dozen pop standards from the 1950s and ‘60s."
Gerry Kowarsky, HEC-TV's Two on the Aisle:
"The results are loads of fun."
Ann Pollack, St. Louis Eats and Drinks:
"Great, almost giddy fun during this cold winter."
Michelle Kenyon, Snoop's Theatre Thoughts:
"With a lot of energy, personality, and a succession of well-known classic pop songs, it’s an entertaining start to the new year at the Rep."
