"...The "vampires" aren't the only forces working against Jeff, Hunter, Heidi, and Susan. There are many references to additional obstacles which these artists must confront such as the pressure of auditions, unemployment, lack of health insurance, and financial difficulties. Heidi struggles with not getting auditions because of the way she looks. Jeff often confronts financial difficulties. Hunter and Susan both juggle their day jobs with their creative gigs. NextStop Theatre's [title of show] is unique in that it is a real-life example of how one's "vampires" can be defeated in the name of creativity."

"...Musical Director Elisa Rosman provided crisp electric-piano playing throughout as a character named Larry. The sum of the cast’s directorial efforts equaled a spectacular evening of musical theater that should not be missed."

"...The show ends on a bright, optimistic note - anyone who's had a smidgen of a dream to see themselves on stage, at least when they were younger, will find themselves a little misty-eyed during "A Way Back to Then" (also a lovely showcase for McManus' powerful, tender voice). Ultimately, it's probably not too much of a spoiler to reveal that our heroes decide to stick to their guns and keep their show's integrity intact, declaring they'd rather be "Nine People's Favorite Thing" than 100 people's ninth favorite thing. Here's to hoping this scrappy little show is finding those nine new audience members night after night."
