"...While... the book doesn't delve as deep as it could into Summer's life, the songs the show uses are a non-stop assortment of some of the biggest hits from the disco era, including "Hot Stuff," "Love to Love You Baby," "Bad Girls," and "Last Dance." The national tour of the musical, which just opened in Tempe for a week long run, features a talented cast, including a trio of exceptional actresses who play Donna Summer at various stages in her life, and the show provides an avenue for a look into the life of a famous woman most people probably don't know that much about, beyond her string of hit songs....  -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway (click here to read the complete review)
