“Mention spéciale également pour les enfants de la pièce qui campent leurs rôles avec beaucoup d’aisance et de naturel”

BroadwayWorld Denver – 07/30/2018

“As an amateur covert operative, Sam Middleton as Gavroche reminds us all to always take children seriously. Although a young role, Middleton performs incredibly well and stands his own among those three times his age, as does Sophie Knapp in the role of Young Cosette.”

Enter Here Canada – 07/11/2018

“The casting is absolutely perfect for this production and the children were very talented as well. Young Cosette, played by Elsa Avery Dees and Sophie Knapp, who alternate as young Eponine, were darling on stage. Gavroche, the young lad who ‘runs the town’ shows that ‘Little People’ can make a difference…”

Creatively Clo – 06/07/2018

“Sophie Knapp as young Cosette is adorable and amazing in her number ‘Castle On A Cloud’…”

Zeta Tijuana – 06/01/2018

“…el brillante Jonah Mussolino en el rol del pequeño ‘Gavroche’…”

MATC Times – 05/03/2018

“I was also impressed by the talent of the young actors Elsa Avery Dees, Sophie Knapp and Jonah Mussolino.”

Badger Herald – 04/06/2018

“My personal favorites were…the kid actors who played Cosette, Eponine and Gavroche (Zoe Glick, Sophie Knapp and Jonah Mussolino respectively).”

InfoCulture.biz – 02/08/2018

“The leader of the song was Jonah Mussolino’s Gavroche, a spunky young boy who partook in the revolution and eventually gave his life for the cause”

TheatreBloom – 12/22/2017

“Little Cosette (at this performance Zoe Glick) and Gavroche (at this performance Julian Emile Lerner) also deserve mentions of praise; Glick, for her dulcet and delicate rendition of ‘Castle on a Cloud’ and Lerner for his punchy pluck in the overall approach to the character. His scene at the barricade is one of the most breath-taking in the most horrific fashion imaginable…”

M Live – 11/22/2017

“I want to tell you about young rebel Gavroche (Julian Emile Lerner) who steals and then breaks our hearts with his self-importance despite his lot in life”

Seth Saith – 10/27/2017

“So kudos to…Zoe Glick (Young Cosette) on ‘Castle on a Cloud'”

Chicago Sun Times – 10/15/2017

“Jordan Cole (who alternates with Julian Emile Lerner) was a feisty, confident Gavroche, the street urchin with great courage”

WPRO News Talk 630 – 09/29/2017

“Sophie Knapp did a lovely job with ‘Castle on a Cloud’ as young Cosette on press night, and Julian Emile Lerner practically stole the show at moments with his cheeky, street-wise Gavroche.”
