Critics' Reviews

"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."

Review by Steven Suskin from Variety

"[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."
