Reviews

A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"There are terrific musical numbers in which [Kirsten Holly] Smith, backed by an onstage band, effectively replicates the singer’s blue-eyed soul sound. The highlight is her full-throttle rendition of 'Preacher Man,' good enough to provide the illusion that we’re watching the real thing."

Variety

Steven Suskin

"[Christina] Sajous leaves a lasting impression—and a blur of sequins—in her electric rendition of the soul classic 'Tell Him' by the Exciters, a high-energy, danceable tune that opens Dusty's ears to the American sound."

Associated Press

Peter Santilli

"Star and co-writer Kirsten Holly Smith nicely captures Springfield's unique blend of Brit tomboy and 'Son of a Preacher Man'-crooning soul legend, while Christina Sajous offers terrific support as Springfield's lover."
