Dog Act Review: Karen Tortora-Lee, The Happiest Medium

Karen Tortora-Lee’s review is out at The Happiest Medium! Karen is another one of our long time reviewers, so we always look forward to her take on our work. I lover her comparison of Zetta to Quixote (and the stories within stories structure of both make the comparison apt), and her Zetta-like phrasing on “singing upbeat songs of high-hoped hereafter.”
But my favorite quote is her whole paragraph describing the music of each character’s unique voice, especially:

And Byers’s Jo-Jo crackles throughout like the crash of a cymbal – she is electric not only when performing her monologues, but even when sitting to the side, muttering.

So, read the whole review here, then get your tix, and then leave your own thoughts on the play here.
