"To cram a classic Broadway musical into a 200-seat house requires considerable ingenuity, and I was especially impressed by the choreography of Ilyse Robbins, whose production numbers, especially “Too Darn Hot” and “Always True to You in My Fashion” (the second of which shows off the excellent dancing of Michele A. DeLuca to sumptuous effect), are all the more exciting for being performed in the lap of the audience." - Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

"Veloudos and choreographer Ilyse Robbins keep the stage alive with color and movement from the opening number (“Another Op’nin’, Another Show’’) to the finale" - Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe

"Choreographer Ilyse Robbins works her magic and creatively moves a lot of people around the small thrust stage. “Too Darn Hot” features almost the entire company on the boards simultaneously, performing Robbins’ steps crisply and with great energy." - Nancy Grossman, BroadwayWorld.com
