“The Brightest Small Musical to play San Francisco in years! A Celebration of Live Theatre itself! A pure pleasure trip…. “DAMES” is staged with dazzling fluidity by Scott Thompson and as a choreographer he springs his production numbers with a magician’s flair!”

(San Francisco Chronicle)

“DAMES AT SEA is classy indeed and a thorough delight! This may turn out to be a rare San Francisco originated commercial long runner with potential of re-mountings elsewhere. The cast is well nigh perfect with vocal, tap and comic chops to burn. Director-choreographer Scott Thompson doesn’t allow a millisecond’s flab – every moment, musical or otherwise, ekes maximum cartoonish mileage out of the materials wit.”
(Variety)

“Scott Thompson who both directed and choreographed, clearly runs a tight ship (no pun intended!) The comic and physical timing could not be more precise. Every number moves along without a hitch – every line is delivered without hesitation. The tap numbers are especially a treat- peppy and precisely executed.”
(Hartford Courant)
