“Midler and Carly Ozard go together like peanut butter and chocolate, a natural match of two equally outrageous talents aligned with some wonderful material. Matching some very funny personal anecdotes with Midler-covered tunes has provided Ozard with her best show to date—concise, well crafted and beautifully sung.”–Steve Murray for Cabaret Scenes
“The piece is a perfect showcase for her big, rich voice and natural charisma; she in no way imitates Bette Midler–she doesn’t need to. Her talent and personality are unique and very appealing.”–Leslie Dileo from Hit! Drama
