Young Hero is not usually a stand-out role, but he is here. True, he has some of the better Sondheim songs, and Jacob Shipley manages dewy innocence, affability and a sweet fulsome tenor; the addition of a guitar to the Rodgers & Hart styled “Love, I Hear” is an adroit touch.

-The Ithaca Times

“Endearing… Highly Engaging… Jacob superbly touches on feelings of anxiety, frustration, confusion, and isolation."

- Nexus Music Blog

"As Jack, Jacob Shipley has boundless energy, fine dance skills and an impressive singing voice. He also brings abundant boyish charm to the role, and a fine sense of comedy."

-The Baltimore Sun
