"A cavalcade of ghosts haunts the premises as well. They include Ellen’s 7-year-old self (a charmingly unaffected Zoe Glick), and the dewy young version of her grandmother, Lucy (the silver-voiced Kerstin Anderson)."


"As immaculately sung by Anderson’s young Lucy, valentines of songs subversively careen off course into darker dissonance, evoking Stephen Sondheim’s pastiche numbers for “Follies.”

- Ben Brantley / New York Times

"As Young Lucy, Kerstin Anderson perfectly captures youthful exuberance and displays a bell-clear soprano. I kept thinking how wonderful she’d be as Fiona in a Brigadoon revival."


- David Fox and Cameron Kelsall / Parterre Box


"...a naïve teenager (embodied by the lovely, crystalline-voiced Kerstin Anderson) who escapes to New York City for one night."


- Brian Scott Lipton / Theater Pizzazz
