"Carla Martinez nicely balances Kate’s camaraderie with Queenie and her rising impatience with Black’s easy infidelity." -Jules Becker
Standouts in the ensemble include...Carla Martinez as the sultry Kate, who's been bruised before but still comes back..."
"...and the uber sexy Carla Martinez is perfectly cast as the hardened star on the way up and out of Vaudeville."
"The entire ensemble is really good and jells seamlessly. A couple of standouts for me are Carla Martinez (Queenie's friend Kate)...Martinez is a triple threat, managing to look adorable and sexy at once." -Nancy Grossman, BroadwayWorld.com
"Carla Martinez is a firecracker who played as fast and loose as Clark. Performance-wise, Martinez is a great match. As actress, she proved an excellent foil to Queenie in her role as Kate." -Kitty Drexel, The New England Theatre Geek
