“Dorothy Marshall Englis came up with two perky sets of period-perfect outfits.”

—Judith Newmark, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Dorothy Marshall Englis’ simple but perfectly period costumes add convincing touches that help transport the audience to the era.”

—Tina Farmer, KDHX

“Dorothy Marshall Englis dresses them in the ‘safe’ style of the ‘50s for Act I as well as go-go boots and flashier attire in Act II of the breezy musical”

—Mark Bretz, Ladue News

“Dorothy Marshall Englis costumes bring back memories of can-can skirts and then go-go boots.”

—Steve Allen, Stage Door St. Louis

“Dorothy Marshall Englis created the costumes, the Fifties ones in particular being right on the money, including those voluminous petticoats we called “can-cans”, stiff and scratchy and poufing out the full skirts. The Sixties costumes remind us what a gift to the world white go-go boots were.”

—Joe and Ann Pollack, St. Louis Eats and Drinks

“The 50’s and 60’s look and sound are achieved here with colorful style by means of Adam Koch’s “high school gym” unit set and Dorothy Marshall Englis’s colorful period costumes.”

—Michelle Kenyon (“Snoop”), Snoop’s Theatre Thoughts
