“Move over, Mean Girls and Wicked:  There's a new musical exploding with grrrl power, female camaraderie and uplifting songs, and it teaches an essential piece of history to boot.... Ten quadruple-threat performers play all the parts and most of the instruments.... UNDENIABLY INSPIRATIONAL.” ~ Time Out New York

“THRILLING... SMART, HUMAN and sardonically feminist, with a lively ragtime-and-jazz score... there is a palpable sense of filling in an important blank: showing an adventurous female presence in the war story we thought we knew... It boasts AN EXCELLENT CAST of actor-musicians who have a multitasking ease as they play the instruments scattered around Lianne Arnold's clever, giant-pegboard set. A handsomely designed production, it also sounds TERRIFIC.” ~ The New York Times

“Filled with memorable songs and BRILLIANT PERFORMANCES, it is a musical as TRIUMPHANT as the true story on which it is based... Mills has filled this action-packed war story with INSTANT-CLASSIC SONGS... Reichel's inventive staging holds the vasty fields of France between two upright pianos.… You're unlikely to see a more talented group of performers anywhere in New York... A JOYOUS EXPERIENCE.” ~ Theatermania

“TERRIFIC BEYOND BELIEF!”

~ Peter Filichia, Broadway Radio

“A FASCINATING historical story, GREAT MUSIC, an EXCEPTIONAL CAST, and the finest staging… This troupe captures the musical's moving story of heroism… The Hello Girls is a distinctive portrayal of the strength and fortitude of women… This ENTERTAINING, INFLUENTIAL show will have a long life in the realm of musical theatre." ~ BroadwayWorld

INTELLIGENT, MUSICALLY SUPERB... THE CAST IS A PHENOMENON. Ellie Fishman is a star with her amazing belt... A SHOW NOT TO MISS.” ~ Times Square Chronicles
 
“A smart, crisply written book… SUPERB MUSICAL NUMBERS... All the characters are drawn with DEPTH AND COMPLEXITY... The production is a consummate ensemble piece.... A WINNER ON ALL FRONTS." ~ www.BlogCritics.org
 
WILDLY ENTERTAINING… Simultaneously lighthearted and informative, Reichel and Mills’ book fuses facts of the war with the women’s emotional journeys… ENGAGING and EDUCATIONAL, one wishes The Hello Girls would play for a longer time on a bigger stage.” ~ Carey Purcell
 
TUNEFUL AND STIRRING… The story looks back 100 years, but its message of making connections – in every sense – and a difference is evergreen... With its RICH SCORE, assured staging and polished performances, the show reaches out and touches upon heroism of everyday women.” ~ Theater News Online
 
DRAMATIC AND COMPELLING... EXPERT DIRECTION and a TALENTED CAST bring the many colorful characters to life... The Hello Girls deserves a longer life than this limited engagement Off-Broadway run.” ~ TheaterScene.net
