"Lauren Sowa portrays a focused and powerful Ellen Tree, eager to devour fresh acting methods and take a risk with her new costar."

"Lauren Sowa as Nurse Kelly and Ian Merrill Peakes as Dr. Sanderson handle the love/hate relationship between these two characters with refinement. Sowa and Peakes steal the scenes they are in with their banter."

- Kelli Curtin, Theatre Sensation

“..a delectable production ... finds just the right tone and style. Lauren Sowa as Gwendolyn wears her chin very high indeed."
