Milo is exceptional in her portrayal of Vail. She is statuesque, curvy, speaks with a Southern drawl, and sings with spice and sexy confidence that knocks men to their knees and makes women admire her.

Gina Milo plays Martha as if the part were written for her. She’s an excellent comedienne replete with southern accent, habitually flirty demeanor, smarter-than-she-seems innocence, and below-the-surface tenderness.

The number that was a show-stopper in the original is now handled by Gina Milo as Martha Vail, “I Was a Shoo-In” is still a show-stopper, thanks to Milo’s perky, sexy and enticing rendition.
