“As Marthy, Chris’s goodtime girl and Jimmy-the-Priest’s saloon regular, mezzo-soprano Joy Hermalyn also deserves mention. She provides comic relief and captures the portrayal of a denizen of an O’Neill dive bar perfectly.”
Talkin’ Broadway – James Wilson

“In the brief but memorable role of Marthy, Chris’s aging girlfriend and longtime seafaring companion, the versatile Joy Hermalyn used her powerful lower range and impressive comic gifts to sketch a vivid, likably colorful character…and performed with outstanding diction!”
ZealNYC – Josh Rosenblum

“Joy Hermalyn brought a brassy mezzo-soprano and prickly bearing as Marthy, a colorful old regular at Chris’s favorite dingy pub.”
NY Classical Review – Eric Simpson

“Marthy was played in a brief but funny & endearing performance by Joy Hermalyn.” – Loren Lester
