(Seen and Heard International)
"Lucy Schaufer and Kate Miller-Heidke play two very different passengers on the ship and find more drama than most in their characters."
(What's on Stage)
"Clare Presland as the Palestinian Woman and Lucy Schaufer's Swiss Grandmother are the jewels of the supporting cast."
(The New Statesman)
"All of the solo roles are taken memorably too, whether it's the cameos from Kathryn Harries as the Austrian woman, Lucy Schaufer as the Swiss grandmother, and Kate Miller-Heidke as the British dancing girl."
"There are fine cameos from Lucy Schaufer as the Swiss grandmother, Kathryn Harries as the very opinionated Austrian woman, and Kate Miller-Heidke as the ditzy British dancing girl."
"Fine vignettes too from Lucy Schaufer (The Swiss Grandmnother), Clare Presland (The Palestinan Mother) and Kate Miller Heidke (The British Dancing Girl).
(Opera Today/Classical Iconoclast)
"A top ensemble cast deserves high praise, among them Michaela Martens as the dignified, distraught Mrs Klinghoffer, Kate Miller-Heidke's sharp, ditsy British dancing girl, Lucy Schaufer, Clare Presland and more."
