Scott C. Morgan, Windy City Times (about Princess Ivona)
This physicality and expressiveness of this cast under the superb direction of Catherine Sullivan is what gives THE LOCKETEER its considerable draw… often using just their voice and posture to be a boy or man, as the dialogue requires.
Amy Munice, Picture this post (about The Locketeer)
Utterly committed performance from the standout cast…
