“On Sunday June 28, actress/singer Candi Milo brought her one.of.a.kind comedic cabaret to Sterling's Upstairs at the Federal and boy, oh boy, is she funny. "How funny?" you may query... Humor comes gushing out of her the minute she opens her mouth, and it's never forced. It's all natural with an electric pace and a multitude of sarcastic asides that work deliciously on a cabaret stage.”
"As Roz, the zealous office spy who harbors her own fantasies about the boss (in a show-stopping number, "Heart to Hart"), Candi Milo packs a wallop - vocally and comedically.”
"Getting some of the biggest cheers is Candi Milo as Roz, the boss's frumpy and cutthroat flunky. Her role is the most different from the movie in that she's given the additional quality of being desperately sexually attracted to Hart. Milo works this to the max, letting her lust loose in "Heart to Hart", and her tenderness show in the reversal song "5 to 9", during where she laments that her non-working hours bring her so much less pleasure than the office does.”
"A true cast standout in her every scene is Candi Milo who portrays the no-nonsense retired pianist Jeanette Burneister who accompanies the men and gives them a few lessons on how to make their act succeed. Her total physicality in the role brings Jeanette fully to life, letting us laugh at the crazy character she has become after working with actors for so long, most notably expressed during, Jeanette's Showbiz Number."
"Now, the best is always saved for last and there is no exception to that rule in this review. The performer who absolutely steals the show is that of Hollywood veteran Candi Milo who plays the smart-mouthed, no-nonsense reporter Leeza Courtney Fox. Milo’s portrayal of this whacked-out old broad is nothing short of hysterical. With comedic timing that is absolutely en pointe, one-liners that kill and an array of costumes slightly resembling upholstery, the character of Leeza Courtney Fox is one that audiences will not soon forget. Milo has been around the Hollywood block quite a bit with an impressive résumé ranging from stage to TV to voice acting (including the voice of Dexter in the famous cartoon Dexter’s Laboratory) and her time in Scary Musical is one she will undoubtably cherish."
"But Candi Milo, as Jeanette, the showbiz savvy rehearsal pianist the boys hire, walks off with the show, her pint-sis, gray-haired, chain-smoking, gravel-voiced character firing off one deadpan zinger after another."
"How to top the smashing Act 1 closer? Give it to the show's comedic highlight, Jeanette, the accompanist at Hot Metal's rehearsals. Portayed here by Candi Milo, she's a showbiz showstopper. Milo wields Sea net's well-worn comedy schtick flawlessly."
"Another fantastic surprise, and audience favorite is Candi Milo as Jeanette Burmeister, the chain-smoking rehearsal pianist for the men. From her entrance on Milo has the audience in stitches--from her raspy voice to her on the nose comedic timing and delivery, she's gold in every scene and a fine singer in "Jeanette's ShowBiz Number".
"...Candi Milo delivers her old-school-rehearsal-pianist deadpan lines with panache. She's perfect! Within two minutes of her speaking, Alice whispered, "She's my favorite." Duh. I have a feeling the entire audience felt the same way. ...I don't remember even a second of that character from the tour those dozen years ago, so I have a feeling that Candi makes more of the role than is written. So, big props to her."
"Milo steals every scene she is in as ditzy Grandma."
"Candi Milo deserves mention for her portrayal of Hart’s assistant, Roz Keith, who is romantically obsessed with her boss and does everything possible to hurt her female co-workers. Though justifiably disliked by the women, she too has a vulnerable side as revealed in “5 to 9,” a sharp contrast in musical numbers to her powerful “Heart to Hart” performance."
