"Molly Pope is the next big thing of 1963…she transports the audience back to the thriving Greenwich Village nightclub scene of yesteryear...viscerally thrilling alto: a rich gusher of sound..." Time Out New York
“It would have been enough for Pope to just be a (phenomenal) singer, but by gum, she's a legitimate actress, too. It's only a matter of time before Broadway discovers one of its greatest stars.” Playbill.com
