“Both Ms. Hennessy and Ms. Spaulding give lovely performances … smart, sincere, and well informed. … A worthwhile and fascinating play.”

              ~ The New York Times
   “Rachel Black Spaulding commands the stage as the lusty, adventurous Vita.”

              ~ The Star-Ledger
    “… for Mona Hennessy and Rachel Black Spaulding portray them, respectively, splendidly. … As Vita, Black-Spaulding is ‘in full sail on high tide …’"

             ~ New Jersey Arts Maven
    “Rachel Black Spaulding is compelling as the globe-trotting … Sackville-West. … See two accomplished actresses mellifluously give voice to … Vita and Virginia.”

             ~ Talkin’ Broadway
    “Director Jane Mandel, with the fine talents of two actresses Rachel Black Spaulding as Vita and Mona Hennessy as Virginia succeeds beautifully. Rachel Black Spaulding is strikingly attractive and properly aristocratic in dress and language, a perfect Vita.”
