Critics Comments

 “Highlights from the musicals were Louise Gold and Jessica Martin singing Cole Porter’s ‘By the Mississinewah’, Thelma Ruby in Porter’s ‘Nobody’s Chasing Me’, Louise Gold again in more Porter, ‘Something For The Boys’ and ‘I’ve Still Got My Health’ and Kitty Carlisle Hart in a most affecting rendition of Weill and Anderson’s ‘September Song’.” Michael Darvell, WHAT’S ON, 1 August 2001

 “For the Gala he” [Ian Marshall Fisher] “fielded five of the best women (though no men), with regulars Louise Gold (the closest Britain has to the foghorn talents of Ethel Merman), Jessica Martin and Thelma Ruby.” Mark Shenton, THE STAGE, 2 August 2001
