    "An essential visit for anyone who cherishes the rare and endangered species of the Broadway musical goddess."
    Ben Brantley for New York Times

    "With this team, the show is certainly worthwhile. But it could really send shivers — and doesn’t."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "It’s Chita Rivera’s world: We just live in it."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "It remains fascinating and alluring, if finally repetitive and frustrating."
    David Cote for Time Out New York

    "Rivera is as elegantly regal, funny and sly as always."
    Mark Kennedy for The Associated Press

    "It's an arresting vehicle for the indomitable Chita Rivera, who has stuck with the project throughout its troubled history, and she remains a uniquely steely stage presence at 82 — graceful, dignified and commanding."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "The show is more literary piece than conventional musical. But it has a dark, sinister beauty — and who could resist a visit from Chita?"
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
