'It is hard to pick out favourites as the entire ensemble did an outstanding job, with fully crayon-coloured in characters ... However, the standout number was 'I Speak Six Languages' performed by tour de force Kimie Tsukakoshi as she demonstrated her character's (and by extension, her own) many different talents including reciting foreign languages, ballet, piano, and of course singing, which all built up to a grand finale gymnastic split at the end - wow.' - Bobbi-Lea Dionysius, Aussie Theatre, 2014
