"...Director Christopher George Patterson successfully accomplishes what he set out to do: Put on a charming classic musical that pays homage to the silver screen musicals of the 1940s and 1950s. It’s exactly the kind of gorgeous, funny, sweeping musical that leaves its audience members literally dancing out the door, humming one of the many witty and memorable Cole Porter songs."
