"The ensemble brims with local talent, including... Matthew Mastronardi doing yeoman's service as both actor and musical director... The most compelling moments come when the company makes music...(Mastronardi plays a mean cello.)"

       -Cameron Kelsall, The Inquirer

"Mastronardi also plays piano for the ensemble throughout the production and easily segues from the keys to delve deep into his other characters... Highlights of the show include...'He's Gone Away'... lovingly song by [Laura] Giknis and Mastronardi, who brought chills and tears to this listener."

       -Suzanne Cloud, Broad Street Review
