All shook up
"One of the greatest standouts of this production was Lily Kaufmann – who plays Tracy’s bumbling sidekick, Penny Pingleton. Kaufmann, a Kansas City native, is hilarious in the role – humanizing a character that, ultimately, has an impressive transformation herself."
~Matt Riedl, The Wichita Eagle
"Lily Kaufmann rocks the show from curtain until bows as Natalie (or 'Ed'), with an intricate performance bursting with character. [...] There's a decisive humor that Kaufmann brings to the stage, one smartly bringing the show up higher than it has any right to."
~Trevor Durham, Broadway World
"Lily Kaufmann's portrayal of Lauren is as witty as it is charming, and her rendition of "The History of Wrong Guys" had me laughing out loud!"
~Jessica Kennedy, The Theatre Guide
