Of her performance, Theater Weekly wrote: ‘Kim Maresca, who has played the role of Judy Denmark off-Broadway, proves that it was worth getting her to reprise the role in London, from her porcelain facial expressions straight out of the Stepford Wives, to that incredible singing voice, every minute she is on stage is delightful’
