Quotes & Highlights

“The score is a melodic, wittily literate delight blessed with such songs as the tart ‘I Remember it Well,’ anticipating Sondheim in its wry melancholy as two former lovers look back on different versions of the same past.” -The Telegraph, UK* *
“The highlight of the show is Lerner’s book and lyrics, with clever turns of phrase that are, at times, like Noel Coward set to music… a talented cast!"-_LA Weekly (“Go!”)
“_Gigi

“It’s a battle of the sexes both thematically and on the stage, as the women in the cast—especially the glorious Lisa O’Hare in the title role—bring much of the charm, humor, and enchantment to the production.”—Theatermania
“Glorious renditions of evergreen songs!”—Backstage
