"* * */ 5"  Kingston Whig Standard

"Makin makes her character very likeable and I particularly enjoyed her song of heartbreak when she discovers that Radames loves another." -- Kingston Whig Standard

"Lydnsay Byrne made a great heroine, brave enough to stand up to her captors, but also tender enough to feel love, and sensitive enough to also feel guilty about it" --- Kingston Whig Standard
