CARMEN JONES: The Hollywood Reporter

'Carmen Jones': Theater Review
By David Rooney

"Lindsay Roberts is charming, the essence of sincere devotion as Cindy Lou, but not so innocent that she can't shrug off the libidinous come-ons of a bunch of horny soldiers: "I'm a chick dat likes one rooster/Never mess aroun' wid two/Dat is why I mus' refuse ter/Be more den jus' perlite to you!" Her duet with Joe (Clifton Duncan), "You Talk Just Like My Maw," traces with aching sweetness a love that blossomed in childhood and seems predestined for a marriage just like those of their respective parents. But despite mutually acknowledging that they belong to each another, Carmen has already staked her claim on Joe."
