With a cast of 47 and nearly a hundred total people involved, this was MAD's largest and most complex musical production in recent years.
“That the production was one of such quality when working with so many different performers is a testament to… Jackson’s excellent directing” said the Greenbelt News Review.

Highlights include choreographing a large tap number with 14 women of varying skill levels for "Who's That Woman?" and a jazz/lindy hop number for "The Story of Lucy and Jessie."
"Choreographer Katrina Jackson did an excellent job with unique dances that fit the character of each number and I heard many audience members commenting on how much they enjoyed the choreography" said MD Theatre Guide.
