Superb… atmospheric scene… gorgeously picked… charismatic… Shipley reaches out and touches the audience.
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."
"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
“Meaningful lyrics... smooth textured vocals... powerful instrumentation..."
