    10. 10. “In the lead role of Billy Crocker, American actor Jeremy Benton evoked Fred Astaire as he glided through his tap routines, traversing the stage so fluidlythat only the clicks reminded you he was actually touching the floor. He has a fine tenor voice as well, which he showed to good effect in Easy to Love, It’s De-Lovely and especially the divided lovers’ duet All Through the Night.” - TAIPEI TIMES “De-Lovely” - Anything Goes
