"Two actors and one piano amount to 13 characters and a rib-tickling whodunnit in North Carolina Theatre’s current production of Murder for Two directed by J. Scott Lapp. Laughter dominates Joe Kinosian’s and Kellen Blair’s funny murder mystery. But it’s the musical accompaniment that threatens to steal the show. The pace is brisk, the puns and jokes are amusing, and there is no other agenda here other than to offer the audience some great entertainment, which it certainly does."

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME - FARMERS ALLEY THEATRE
"J. Scott Lapp directs the production at Farmer’s Alley where they have pulled out all the stops - technical and artistic - to make for a breath-taking evening of theater. In fact, it is hard to know what to praise first or most loudly - the outstanding work of a technical team that used complex projections, sets, sound and lighting in a perfectly timed manner or the superior acting ability of a talented ensemble lead by the magnificent Troy Hussmann whose performance was superlative. Lapp and his entire cast and crew have put together a stunning production that demonstrates the power of theater and technology in telling untold stories of people who often go unheard and are misunderstood."

HAIRSPRAY - SAN DIEGO MUSICAL THEATRE
"San Diego Musical Theatre has struck gold with its inspiring and hilarious production of "Hairspray," which digs deep into the story's civil rights theme. The effervescent production is so chock full of high hair, buoyant optimism, high-spirited dancing and uplifting songs that it practically levitated the audience to its feet after Saturday’s show. The 2002 musical has been produced many times in San Diego - This might be the best all-around production yet."
