December 15th, 2016

"Director Emilyn Kowaleski’s interpretation is thorough and nuanced, exploring both the characters’ larger-than-life ridiculousness and their vulnerability…The utterly heightened and deliciously ridiculous style of storytelling sets the tone perfectly…With its twists and turns, Merlo's script will surely keep folks on the edge of their seats…'The Witch of St. Elmora Street' is a comedy that has the power to tear your heart apart before you have a chance to escape its charm."

"This story transforms into a kind of modern folk tale, which, as many good folk tales do, provides a coping mechanism for hard times…There are moments when ‘The Witch of St. Elmora Street’ seems to be stretching itself a bit too far, but one of its finest qualities is that it frequently achieves a nearly grotesque clownishness without depriving its characters, or its audience, of a sense of realness in their sentiments and actions."

"Despite some scenes that tend to drag a little, 'The Witch of St. Elmora Street' is packed with an impressive cast who bring to life characters utterly alive and sympathetic. Completely at home in their sometimes outrageous, sometimes sobering characters, it seemed to me that every actor gave their all… Merlo’s creation is both a touching homage to the stranger elements of Italian-American culture and a story of love, heartbreak, and family."
