“A dizzying achievement and a fortuitous moment for the Alliance […] Azar and Lind are lovely as Will and Viola.” — Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Will, extremely well played by Thomas Azar in his Alliance debut, is a living, loving, likable young man” — Atlanta INtown Paper

“Both Thomas Azar as Will and Bethany Anne Lind as Viola are delightful, and the natural chemistry between the two creates an appealing sexiness that perfumes every scene.” — Broadway World Atlanta
