"These entertainers do a show that is unsurpassable. Equal parts send-up, straight-up tribute, satire, campy gay wisecracks and pure showbiz razzmatazz; "Judy and Liza Together Again!" is one of those shows that defines "cabaret." - Edge
Bring a safety harness to Don't Tell Mama: you'll fall out of your seat with laughter at the hijinks provided by Tommy Femia and Rick Skye as the mother-daughter team of Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli...the gags fly and the songs roll out: numbers identified with their characters, such as "Maybe This Time," "(The Theme from) New York, New York," Femia's moving "Over the Rainbow," and, in a powerhouse finale together, "Get Happy" and "Happy Days Are Here Again." The latter's final line aptly sums up a joyous evening." Peter Haas Cabaret Scenes
