In his review for The New York Times, Frank Rich wrote that "...the new musical revue at the Lunt-Fontanne, is an [Duke] Ellington celebration that just won't quit until it has won over the audience with dynamic showmanship...it rides so high on affection, skill and, of course, stunning music that the lapses don't begin to spoil the fun. What's more, this is the only Broadway revue of recent vintage that operates on a truly grand scale.
