Totally delightful! If you’re a fan of Shakespeare, you’ll love hearing lines sprinkled through the original lyrics. Honey-voiced Laura Joe Trexler embodies each of the heroines in a game and charming performance. Very easy watching!... full review

Trexler’s performance had all that you would expect from a Broadway show, with just the right amount of theatricality added to the songs to make them come alive and memorable. Check out the rest of the review..... full review

Laura-Jo is a musical sensation and certainly someone to watch. Aside from being a tour de force as a musician, piano player, and vocalist, she is also a master of each Shakespearean character she portrays. As a songwriter and composer, she also managed to capture the essence of each heroine through her catchy motifs and slick melodic lines. Her transitions are fast, her presentation is witty, and her characters are well thought out and jam-packed with artistic subtlety and variety. Whether you know much about Shakespeare or not, this is a show that’s not to miss. She nails it. With a run-time of 45 minutes, there’s no excuse not to see it. ... full review

Laura Jo is very talented. She has made Shakespeare heroines accessible to all, and the pieces and transitions were polished and worth a look just for the simplicity of everything in the craziness that is Fringe.... full review
