Published Reviews

"...a new Christmas package almost overwhelming in its glory and charm. It's the best show I've seen in this or any holiday season -- an irresistible blend of Bible tales and mountain music, staged by a company of extraordinary talent."

Julie York Coppens, The Charlotte Observer

"Perfect family fare... Beautiful Star will lighten your heart and put a lump in your throat."

Leslie Mizell, News & Record (Greensboro, North Carolina)

"...this banjo/mandolin inflected tuner is the most moving telling of the nativity story this Jew has ever beheld."

Perry Tannenbaum, creativeloafing.com (Charlotte, North Carolina)

"...exudes the rarer virtues of simplicity and faith. "

Lawson Taitte, The Dallas Morning News
