…”The telling is fascinating, but the singing is something else altogether. When Godfrey opens her mouth and lets it go, it’s thrilling. It’s all there–whether she’s singing Waters’ original version of “Stormy Weather”, Fitzergerald’s “A Tisket, A Tasket” or gliding through Vaughn’s way with Errol Garner’s “Misty.” …

“One need not be a fan of Waters, Fitzgerald or Vaughn to appreciate “Ladies Of Song.” Godfrey’s star turn alone is enough to recommend the show to anyone who’s a fan of a good song, a good show or a great performance.”

…” Without tempting to imitate the women, Godfrey calls on her considerable acting and singing resources to give us the flavor of each performer’s career in a production that is bright, funny and at times, moving”….

..”.Godfrey sings–powerfully—a couple of Waters’ signature pieces: “Supper Time”, by Irving Berlin, and “Stormy Weather” by Harold Arlen and Ted Kohler. It’s Waters, but it’s simultaneously Godfrey, a splendid actress with the vocal goods.”

…”Nothing should stop you from running out to see “Ladies of Song.” The great and glorious Lynnie Godfrey can’t wait to see you! ”
