Critic Reviews:

"This piece is another example of well-done short-humor formatting: (Sara) nests a character monologue into the form of a listicle. It gives the piece a fun pace, slowly doling out great specifics and fun reveals."

 - A Newsletter of Humorous Writing, reviewing "8 Places I Definitely Was When My Husband Was Murdered"

"Standouts: When Zachary Moyer (Georg) and Sara Costello

(Martha) performed their solos, I found

myself wondering why the cast’s best singers aren’t playing

the leads....Moyer

and Costello have damned magnificent voices, and I hope

to see and hear more of them in the future."

-Tracy Nectoux, Smile Politely for Spring Awakening 

"Sara Costello makes a terrific, energetic tap-dancing feathered friend named Scuttle, the Seagull."

 -Chicago Theatre Review

"One of the things that really stood out to me about this musical was the fact that every time Costello is on

the stage she definitely steals the show. I’m not sure if this is due to her obvious background in theater or

that she just plays Linda (the mean-spirited ex-fiancée) so well. Her voice and her persona really light up

the stage..."
