some kind words:


Especially noteworthy is Andrea Abello’s performance as grown-up daughter Emmy. Abello delivers the young woman’s acerbic and pointed response to her mother’s arrival with as much persuasion from the way she cocks her head and smiles chillingly as how she delivers Hnath’s pithy lines. It’s an engaging and refreshing performance.” Mark Bretz, Ladue News

“Andrea Abello is terrific as Emmy Helmer, who is intelligent and wise beyond her years. Her mother leaving at a young age forced her to grow up quickly, and help to take care of her father and brother. She is also very strong-willed like her mother, and like Nora never is afraid to say what is on her mind. Abello may share less stage time than the other actors, but she is a delight to watch whenever she is on.” Kevin Brackett, Review STL.

“…beautifully supported by Andrea Abello as Emmy, Nora's daughter. Little Emmy, who really never knew her mother, is delightfully free of any resentment toward Nora-and, being engaged and in love, she makes a strong case in favor marriage and its bond.” Steve Callahan,

“There’s a great cast here, led by Kozlowski as Nora. Abello is also memorable as the youthful, optimistic Emmy, who although she is more traditionally-minded than her mother, in her own way is just as idealistic and stubborn as Nora.” Michelle Kenyon, Snoop
