LA Weekly - Somewhat Recommended

"...Johnson, with her Lucille Ball looks and chirpy timbre, sounds just like Holliday and plays her with wide-eyed innocence. Director Guillermo Cienfuegos innovatively stages the action, but the story drags toward the end, as her death is drawn out, and overall lacks the weight of tragedy."

"...But now that I have received the benefit of Wendy Johnson’s fine writing and performance, under Guillermo Cienfuegos’s inspired direction, I care a lot about both this production and this company. As this is the fourth show of Pacific Resident Theatre’s 25th Anniversary season, one may say that, not for the first time, I have come late to the good party."

"...But it is in the casting that this play rises to its highest-possible level: starting with Wendy Johnson herself as Judy Holliday, with varied levels of her emotional involvement with Ms. Holliday’s life startlingly true and funny when needed: she gets Ms. Holliday’s giggle and voice patterns, along with big eyes which reflect the action amazingly."

Dale Reynolds - Not Recommended

"...I was hoping for more of a story about Judy Holliday, who I thought was a fine actress and who, unfortunately, passed away at a very young age. The dreams did not really offer me a clear insight into this young woman nor cause me to have any feelings for her as a person. I didn’t see the character on stage as really being Judy Holliday. There must have been more to her than was shown by these strange dreams."
