Eileen Herlie


Reviewing that show, Brooks Atkinson of The New York Times wrote: "Did you know that Eileen Herlie could sing in a voice that is beautifully cultivated? In America she has played farce, Shakespeare and modern drama with unvarying excellence. Here she is in musical comedy. Her affectionate Lily, the instinctive lady and the inevitable schoolteacher, is a lovely performance brought to a fine glow."
