"I could watch Perry forever. She exudes experience, authority, and kindness when dancing. Very engaging." (Matt Paluch, Gramilano)
"Eleanor Perry as Thatcher is a highlight of the show. She gestures madly, dancing with staccato steps and dominates the stage with her movements whenever she is on it." (Brinkworth, on Gary Clarke's COAL)
