Eureka Theatre, San Francisco, California

"[T]his production represents a successful end to a triumphant season at one of the City's finest entertainment treasures."
"The entire ensemble shows such depth of talent that it's a testament to the company's ability to draw fine actors from the whole region. Nancy Dobbs Owen, Annie Donahey, Hannah Knapp, Bill Olson, Corinne Proctor and Jonathan Shue round out the ensemble, singing and dancing with aplomb and playing numerous characters, adding a great deal of energy and enjoyment."
"[E]xuberance abounds, humor was plentiful, and musical gems were pleasing to the ear."
"Some energetic work is displayed, thanks to director Greg MacKellan. The choral numbers for "Too Bad," "Hail, Bibinski" and "The Red Blues" are vibrant...Annie Donahey, Hannah Knapp, Bill Olson, Corinne Proctor and Ray Renati playing various roles don't disappoint...with every member playing their parts well."
"You don't see a lot of Silk Stockings revivals, so we have yet another reason to celebrate 42nd Street Moon's dedication to dusting off shows that we'd never otherwise get to experience."
"It's a huge cast and each one should be nominated for a Tony - if we had Tony's here. But in my book - they deserve it."
