Chicago Theatre & Concert Reviews – 11/20/2018
“And little Jace Chen (alternating with four other child actors) is heartbreaking and totally focused, innocently portraying Tam, Kim and Chris’ son.”
Around the Town Chicago – 11/17/2018
“I am not certain which of the five children played Tam (the child) so I will mention them all: Jace Chen, Ryder Khatiwala, Fin Moulding, Melanie Ramirez and Sarah Ramirez. On opening night, Ryder did the role. Great stage presence!”
Vmedia Backstage – 10/15/2018
“First grader Jace Chen is a charm as the tiny, innocent Tam.”
For All Events – 10/12/2018
“Special credit, not incidentally, belongs to the child actor who portrays Tam (Fin Moulding on opening night, four others on different evenings and matinees), who’s cruelly labeled a ‘half-breed.’ She’s totally believable in a wordless but clinging, emotionally agonizing role.”
The Mercury News – 10/12/2018

Around the Town Chicago - 12/18/14
“This is, however, an ensemble show where the dancers and the work they do under the direction (Jeff Calhoun) and the wonderful choreography (Christopher Gattelli) is mind- blowing. It is hard to believe that they can do so much and still sing and say their lines."
Chicago Theater Beat - 12/18/14
