Quotes from the Press

"Maria Friedman has the difficult task of competing with memories of Liza Minnelli, but adds the requisite touch of winsome English charm on 'Don't Tell Mama' and the rest." Clive Davis, The Sunday Times (4 January 1998)

"Maria Friedman is careful not to make Sally too much of a star, a trap Liza Minnelli fell into in the movie. Miss Bowles is an interwar dropout, more talented in the bedroom than the green room, as Friedman suggests with a husky and sexy delivery." John Higgins, The Times (18 December 1997)
