Richard Garland - New York World-Telegram
"Miss Katharine Hepburn comes into her own as Antiope the royal Amazon Theseus falls in love with. Ever since she supported Miss Jane Cowl in Art and Mrs. Bottle, I've been waiting for Miss Hepburn to fall heir to a role worthy of her talent and beauty. Antiope is that role and Miss Hepburn makes the most of if, bringing out its tenderness its humor, its bite. It's been many a night since so glowing a performance has brightened the Broadway scene."
Brooks Atkinson - The New York Times
"As Antiope, the Amazon who knows when she is beaten by love, Katharine Hepburn gives an excellent performance."
Arthur Ruhr - The New York Herald Tribune
"..Miss Katharine Hepburn, as the young Amazon, Antiope, who finally deserts her band for love of the dashing Theseus - a boyish, steel-spring-like figure, woman in spite of herself, who suggests a somewhat tougher and more dynamic version of Maude Adams' Peter Pan."
What Kate had to say
"Nobody ever noticed me until I was in a leg show."
