"Relationships are complicated. Having two twin friends, one who passed away and one named Jane, really put me in the thick of their lives...I must take this time to say how impressed I was with the entire cast. This is not an easy production for these actors. At some point, they all play multiple parts and do it beautifully. This small group of professionals slip in and out of character flawlessly to allow the time lines to merge." Full Review
for a previous production "What made this so incredibly delicious to me, was that each actor not only handled the puppets but played the actual character, voice, body movements, expressions, all to perfection...I felt, for that hour and a half, that I was seeing the Golden Girls in person, and just loving it!...Devoted fans will fondly remember our four girls and for the first-timers, this will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of that television series."

"All four girls, dressed in their prom best, crinoline and all, harmonized their way to my heart...Four individual personalities brought smiles and laughter to the audience as the story unfolded...It would be hard to pick out the best of the bunch as each of these dynamos belted out their part of the harmony with zest, animation, and lots of perfect body language...I laughed, I sang and I felt really good as I left this beautiful theater."

"Terrific belly laugh of a show...There are lots of laughs, as one person's problem becomes a bit complicated and from there all breaks loose as we experience what 'should have been' a nice night with family and turns out to be a future sitcom...What actually is the truth that ultimately comes out? I'd rather not spoil it. It's funny, sad and thought-provoking. DiPietro has it down perfectly." Full Review
"Fiery and emotionally heartbreaking...The acting in the production is outstanding...You do care very much about each character in this play. This family could be Irish, Jewish, or any other ethnicity...Because of the deep issues each of the characters possess, it becomes a bit overwhelming as the stories either need more time or there needs to be fewer stories to inhale. You care about these characters and want to see complete resolution. The second act is a powerhouse in many ways." Full Review
"It gave me goosebumps. In this intimate theatre, this show explodes with talent, history, original songs and acting that is thrilling to experience...A show that is appealing to patrons of all ages...Experience 'Liberty, A Monumental Musical' with your family. It will give you a sense of history, but more importantly, you will be proud to be an American. To see this statue finally step onto her pedestal and raise her torch is something you won’t soon forget." Full Review
"Whether you love tiny little dogs that you can carry in your purse or the really big kind that scares everyone away, you will love 'Sylvia'... Among the many laughs I had, I also cried. But, I won’t spoil that for you. Just be sure to stay when the ‘run the credits.’ You’ll be happy you did. " Full Review
"One might say that 'Of Good Stock' was just another family-gets-together, family-fights, family-makes up, type of play and you are right. But, mix that formula with 6 incredibly talented, non-stop performances and set it on a stage so beautifully designed that you just might want to move in, and you have a play that feeds to your emotions, your laughter and the desire to just join in with coffee and bacon on the beach in Cape Cod."
