Critic Reviews

“Audiences will find this return to the scheming secretarial pool A LAUGH RIOT! Not since ‘Wicked’ has a show overflowed with so much musical-comedy promise. There’s a reason DOLLY PARTON’s sold more than 100 million records worldwide! The foot-stomping theme song energizes the audience like a strong cappuccino!”

-Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

WILD and WITTY and GREATLY ENTERTAINING! If you liked the film, you’re going to love the musical! DOLLY PARTON’s songwriting skills were made for Broadway. Replacing Parton, Tomlin and Fonda is a daunting task, but the trio of MEGAN HILTY, ALLISON JANNEY, and STEPHANIE J. BLOCK rise to the occasion! MARC KUDISCH is devilishly good!”

-Jay Reiner, Hollywood Reporter

“A HIP, HILARIOUS FAIRY TALE with DYNAMITE PERFORMANCES, a ROLLICKING score by DOLLY PARTON, a clever script by PATRICIA RESNICK, and spectacular direction by Tony-winner JOE MANTELLO. ALLISON JANNEY brings down the house, STEPHANIE J. BLOCK proves her versatility and MEGAN HILTY shines as Doralee.”

-Neal Weaver, LA Weekly

“IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT! ALLISON JANNEY brings a long-limbed elegance to Violet, MEGAN HILTY’s Doralee is a pitch-perfect Dolly imitation and STEPHANIE J. BLOCK hits it out of the park.”

-Paul Hodgins, The Orange County Register

“SUPER FUN! Two thumbs up and a pair of DDs all perked up!”
