Ms Love released the following statement:
"What a fun show! When I saw the show, the audience was waving their arms and singing along. They had a grand time. I remember all those classic songs. The lyrics are meaningful and help tell the story. I did sing on a number of them. They are not from records that I made, but I am really looking forward to putting my own signature on 'Moon River,' 'Both Sides Now' and so many others."Darlene Love has appeared on the Great White Way in 'Hairspray,' 'Grease,' 'Carrie,' and 'Leader of the Pack.'
