De Gelderlander Online 24 november 2001 MARTIN HERMENS:
"They can normally sin, dance also. But the acting abilities of Dutch musical stars is mostly of a very low standard. The audience wants to hear beautiful signing voices, producers need famous people for promotion purposes and even critics tend to push aside the acting capabilities with a small remark. As if it doesn’t matter how you play your roll in the musical. But that’s a serious misconception. Musical as a theatre component  is know as the most difficult one. Simply because the Performers must be able to: sing, dance and act. An almost impossible combination, it seems. But there are those who are able to do it all. An example from our own country is Simone Kleinsma. Voice and performance in perfect combination which earns her the right to be called the first real musicalstar of Holland. There are not many others beside Kleinsma that can claim this right. There are but a handful. Like Pia Douwe and Joke de Kruijf. And of a more recent date: Sophia Wezer, who played a glorious roll  in Chicago speelde, appears to be a natural performer in musicals."
