BRAVA AND BRAVO! ​​​​​​​What a pro show and what stunning music. The whole idea of it is brilliant. You have invented a new art form! Great script, great reading/acting. This is a must-see show and inspiring musical/theatrical experience.

Let me tell you this:  I don't think I've ever had a more aesthetically pleasing evening as I had Friday night.  It made me smile, it made me laugh out loud, it made me cry, it astonished me musically.  I've heard Bernstein, Rubenstein, Bobby Short, Beverly Sills, Pavarotti, Dizzy Gillespie, Peggy Lee, and Ray Charles, and hundreds of others, and I have never seen or heard anything like that.  I do not understand why this work and this idea has not permeated popular culture.

I CANNOT REMEMBER A BETTER PERFORMANCE. If that performance is the last one I ever see, I will die fulfilled. The word extraordinary simply does not do it justice. 
Barry Nickelsberg, The Carter Center
GLORIOUS! The music of Astor Piazzolla is infectious; it tugs at your heart and very soul. The joy of hearing this music with world-class musicians was a very rare treat indeed. Thank you for one of the most uplifting, life-affirming and enjoyable performances I have attended in a very long time. 
Philip Greenberg, Artistic Director, Kiev Philharmonic Orchestra
I AM STILL REELING FROM THE EXPERIENCE. I am a frequent theater patron and cannot remember the last time I was swept away and taken on such a beautiful, transformative journey. An absolute perfect piece this is - the impeccably timed, absolutely authentic narration; the achingly gorgeous music. This is art at its finest.
     Nothing I have seen on Broadway, off Broadway, or regionally comes close. I only hope you find a long-standing venue so that many more can experience the genius of Astor Piazzolla and this gem of a show.

OUTSTANDING BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS. I loved it! I loved the music, the musicians were virtuosos and Lesley's performance incredible. She absolutely channels the composer, with whom I was not familiar, and am so glad I now am.

ONE OF THE BEST ENSEMBLE PERFORMANCES THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN. The musicians were outstanding and the lead actress/narrator (who also co-wrote the play) was superb. The performances revealed a depth of knowledge of the composer and his life and times, but also a profound love of his music.. This is rare. I hope they can take this message to a global audience.

A FABULOUS EVENING. I've always enjoyed Piazzolla's music but never knew much about him or his motivations ... this show was a brilliant, well acted bio with astonishing musicians. My friends and I loved it and are still talking about it today ... bravo!

A BEAUTIFUL, HEARTFELT AND INFORMATIVE PRESENTATION that spoke to the mind and the heart. We always loved his music but knew nothing about his life. Thank you all.
