Reviews are in for A Wake or a Wedding

“Joy Hermalyn gives a star performance, taking the stage and chewing the scenery with gusto, as a diva gone wild. WIth one phrase her voice growls in the basement and then opens to a thrilling mature soprano in the next. Her diction is impeccable and she “works” every one of her costumes…” – Navida Stein, StageBuddy

“Joy Hermalyn provided the most comic relief and biggest voice of the group as Marcella Sorella, the wedding entertainer, reminiscent of Bette Midler.” – Gloria Talamas, eljnyc.com/offbway
