"Victoria Pym was the stand out of the production, marrying obvious acting talent with a clear, controlled and melodious vocal." - Deborah Klayman, The Public Review
"The talented young company tackles the score woth gusto, though special credit should go to Victoria Pym's delightfully malevolent Sorceress." - Jon Stapley, Three Weeks Review
