Reviewing the show in Cabaret Scenes, Rob Lester trumpeted, "Joyce is sly, spry, and eager to wink an eye. And that's why the lady is a vamp!" and praised Moody's vocal abilities: "Revealing a legit soprano and prominent vibrato on sentimental ballads like her dignified Trust in Me, a bombastic belt for Hard-Hearted Hannah, and light comedy-cute characterization on Crazy Words, Crazy Tune, there's variety in Joyce's choices and voices....Fun...it becomes contagious." Lester went on to say, "With her sunny side up and at 'em, Joyce ebulliently sashays and struts and smiles or sobs her way through the songbook of Ager..." and lauded the wide range of songs included in the show: "A major part of the pleasure is hearing the lesser-known numbers...they are ripe for the dusting off and admirers of old-time tunes (like me) are grateful for Joyce and Earl's way with the feather duster and the feather boa."
