“To say he has a lot of panache would be an understatement…[A] beautiful curio—at once poetic, raw, and intimate…Mosley is yet a young man in the world of theatre but shows a talent and wisdom beyond his years. 3 1/2 out of 4 stars.” -Clint May, Chicago Theater Beat
“Something deeply personal, moving and impossible not to identify with…a fast-blossoming performer whose insights into the intersection between loss and identity are worthy of an hour of anyone’s time.” -Steven Chaitman, Windy City Times
