"Despite the plethora of talent in the cast, only Carly Hughes — a newcomer to me —seemed able to break through the fog. As Georgia Brown, who sings a double-entendre specialty called “Honey in the Honeycomb,” she gave off the kind of joy that even the best musical theater has always required to lift it past its built-in limitations." – Vulture
