New York City Cabaret
"The gem of the night was charismatic Michael Hughes. Wow! Bursting with focused energy protesting, 'What do I need with Love?' and antidoting with a doting 'Maria' embracing romance, he glowed. Patter showed a winsome personality and heart. Closing with pop polish on 'Where Did I Go Wrong?' the answer was 'Nowhere'"

"A strong clear tenor."

"Michael Hughes, whose well-reviewed Mickey & Judy show is at the Duplex, got chuckles from his patter about a childhood obsession with dolls and then burst into a swingin' 'Hello, Dolly!'"
