Reviews for The Tempest

"Everyone is quite brilliant. All these roles are played fantastically well as cleverly crafted pieces of the whole."

- Samantha Simmonds http://nohoartsdistrict.com/theatres/theatre-reviews/item/5751-the-porters-of-hellsgate-theatre-company-presents-the-tempest-by-william-shakespeare

"A gender switch for Sebastian (Whitton Frank), plotting to overthrow Alonso, King of Naples (Sean Faye), with the duplicitous Antonio (Matthew Jayson Cwern), comes with an intriguing undercurrent of sexual attraction."

Reviews for Empty Threat audiobook

"Whitton Frank narrates this story breathlessly, portraying the characters, both real and fictional. Frank's narration becomes more emotional as Elana flexes her skills, her ability to change storylines and save their characters from death." - https://www.audiofilemagazine.com/reviews/read/135487/empty-threat-by-danny-bell/

"The moment Whitton started reading, I knew this would not be the case. Her voice is engaging, her inflections and accents are incredible, and she is exactly what I would imagine Elana's voice to sound like." - Alycia Sedelmeyer - https://www.amazon.com/Empty-Threat-Novel-Black-Pages-ebook/product-reviews/B072BFCGVK/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_viewopt_kywdie=UTF8&reviewerType=all_reviews&pageNumber=1&filterByKeyword=whitton


"Whitton Frank's energetic, youthful, and engaging narration was a good match for author Danny Bell's quirky yet grounded (and delightfully flawed) protagonist." - Christine E Moore - https://www.audible.com/pd/Sci-Fi-Fantasy/Empty-Threat-Audiobook/B072R247H6#customer-reviews

Reviews for Out of Our Father's House

"As a piece of historical and political theatre, Out of Our Father's House triumphs in preserving the significance of its inspirational figures and realising them in a way that gives them contemporary relevance."

- Elliot Roberts - The List - https://edinburghfestival.list.co.uk/article/83565-out-of-our-fathers-house/

"Smoothly directed by Marya Mazor, the cast of four moves rapidly among several characters each, pausing from time to time to punctuate the narrative with traditional American folk songs that take on surprising feminist resonances in this context." - Gerald Berkowitz - The Stage - 

https://www.thestage.co.uk/reviews/2016/out-of-our-fathers-house-review-at-the-gilded-balloon-edinburgh-irresistible/

"The inclusion of live music brings a lovely sense of context and also breaks up the action, allowing the audience to gather their thoughts as the women nimbly switch between roles. With characters simply defined by a single prop or piece of costume, the focus is on the story, the diary extracts and the speeches."
