"An unforgettable production. Flawlessly directed by Joe Calarco (his integration of set, lighting and projections is inspired).  Wickedly appealing and vocally superb, both Nicole Van Giesen and Wayne Wilcox are magnificent."
J. Cooper Robb, Philadelphia Weekly


"…a gem of a chamber musical… Calarco’s direction is deft and sensitive."
Douglas J. Keating, The Philadelphia Inquirer


"…a small show that provides entertainment out of proportion to its size…cunning…dazzling… Director Joe Calarco stages the piece skillfully, working with a minimalist set by Michael Fagin enhanced by projected photos and film clips by Michael Clark."
Leo Irwin, The Delaware News Journal


"…completely re-envisioned… Well directed by Joe Calarco…"
Kathryn Osenlund, Curtain Up
