"Adair has a fine partner in Elizabeth Telford, whose powerful voice is matched by a keen comic sensibility. Watching Sarah Brown surprise and overwhelm Sky by breaking out of her shell in Havana is a real pleasure, as is her song 'If I Were a Bell.'"
"A most unlikely new romance is kindled when gambler Sky Masterson (Adair), bets Detroit that he can lure the very proper Salvation Army soul-saver Sarah Brown (Elizabeth Telford, a powerhouse soprano), on a date to Havana, Cuba....And Larson and Telford bring sparkle and wit to 'Marry the Man Today,' the song that reveals their acquired knowledge about taming a man."
"Elizabeth Telford shines as the conflicted Sarah Brown, lighting up the house with her slightly intoxicated and full-throated number 'If I Were A Bell.'"
"Elizabeth Telford (debut) as Sarah Brown, a delightful and spunky soprano who played the role with an almost assertive innocence."
"...His “girl” and as it turns out conquest is Miss Sarah Brown (a standout performance by Elizabeth Telford, who has a marvelous voice to match her charming characterization of this prim and proper “soldier”) I found her enchanting, in particular their trip to Havana. Wow! If she were a bell, any guy would want to swing with her!"

"Both Justin Adair and Elizabeth Telford, as the less comic romantic couple – the gambler Sky Masterson and head “Save a Soul” Missionary Sarah Brown – have powerful voices that nail Loesser’s love ballads “I’ve Never Been in Love Before” and “I’ll Know.” Acting-wise Telford’s Brown has a certain toughness that suits the character."
"Newcomer to Light Opera Works Elizabeth Telford as Sarah Brown has an operatic powerhouse of a voice that goes on and on forever. You can bet on seeing her again in future shows."
