"...an excellent production of this small, heartfelt musical that features a gifted cast, perceptive direction, and impressive creative elements...Pasek and Paul's score features many memorable and upbeat songs and several introspective solos that drive the plot forward while also providing insight into the characters. ..while it has a fairly simple plot, is well constructed, perceptive and poignant. Director Bobby Sample does an exceptional job of ensuring the emotions of the characters and the tender and sweet nature of the story ring true, and his cast create realistic, three-dimensional individuals. As Eddie, Dean Kelldorf is very good in portraying a troubled, nuanced man. ...Sabrina Kiepke is superb as Rose...Both Kiepke and Kelldorf have warm singing voices that excel...Spotlight Youth Theatre's production has a gifted cast, clear direction, and wonderful creative aspects that result in a moving and thoughtful presentation of a story of remembrance, redemption, and blossoming and somewhat awkward romance."   -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway (click here to read the complete review)
