"Big, brash, glistening production! If you want reassurance that every vote counts and free people always need to wake up, this is the place. In [Edward] Gero’s mouthy self-absorption and [Kimberly] Gilbert’s moving transformation, ["Born Yesterday"] is alive."

- The Washington Post

"A sparkling production! Delightfully subversive! Kimberly Gilbert in the central role of Billie Dawn is the sun around which other cast members rotate. Gilbert is beyond electric. She is the Northern Lights."

- DC Metro Theater Arts

"Superb performances! Sharp-tongued humor! The true star of the show is Kimberly Gilbert who dazzles as Billie Dawn. Whether she's reciting lines from the musical 'Anything Goes' or standing up for herself against Brock's cruelty, Gilbert commands the stage. "

- Broadway World

"Genuinely good, old-fashioned fun! The pace is quick, the irony high, the jokes fun. A few of the performances here are so clever they defy the limits and bring exactly the kind of warmth, humor, and wit this kind of entertainment requires."

- Metro Weekly

"Delightful and timely! Crisp dialogue and smartly drawn characters. Amazing that a play that was written 70+ years ago … could play so well and be so relevant to us today."
