"Eigg the Musical: Before we even talk about how great this show is, I just have to mention that the cast is full of wonderful people. So down to earth and so talented! The show itself is AMAZING. The music is awesome, the story is lovely, and it’s chock full of humor, love, and strength. If you want to see a wonderful musical based on a true story, this is the one! "

New Yorker Festival Review:
"The show (WYSIWYG) does break tradition in an important way. Regardless of whether you consider them trans by today’s definitions, musical theater’s gender-bending forerunners like Angel (Rent), Lola (Kinky Boots), Hedwig (& the Angry Inch), and Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Rocky Horror) are always portrayed as so sassy, confident, and Vegas fabulous that you never really question their success in attracting love. WYSIWYG’s April is camp-free and the musical is less about making her into an icon than it is about establishing her as someone with common talents and struggles. I liked the direction it went in."
