"While Ethel Merman was an entire brass section and Carol Channing was a parade, Miss Martin remained natural and exactingly true to life--and it was poetry." --Mel Gussow, ("New York Times" obituary, November 5, 1990.
"As Ensign Nellie Forbush, the 'cockeyed optimist' heroine of Rodgers & Hammerstein's 'South Pacific', as the airborne boy who never grows up in 'Peter Pan' and as the Austrian governess who marries her boss and then saves their family from the Nazis in 'The Sound of Music', Martin was an effervescent, girlishly charming actress whose homespun personality and lovely lyric soprano voice personified theatrical star qualtiy and captivated Broadway audiences." --"Variety" obituary, November 12, 1990.
