has a talent for directing and her presentation of this play could very well be remembered throughout the year

-  Director and choreographer Allison Bibicoff gets a much deserved standing ovation from me. She had a large cast, a small stage and lots of dancing to weave into the show. The audience was aware that Russians dance down on their haunches and do lots of kicking. She really needed a much bigger stage but performed her miracles....bravo!

"Allison Bibicoff has directed Tanglin’ Hearts with country gusto, as well as choreographing several lively group numbers and one cute, ingenious swing dance for Celia and Webb, complete with lasso moves....Tanglin’ Hearts turns out to be not only the first musical among the over thirty productions I’ve reviewed at Theater 40, it’s one of the Beverly Hills fixture’s most crowd-pleasing efforts to date. ...
