On stage...


“Carmel Dean has done Edna St. Vincent Millay an extremely generous favor. She has set the revered poet’s “Renascence” to glorious, moody, insistent music. Doing that, she has also given audiences an equally uplifting gift.” -New York Stage Review

“Katie Thompson is the play’s emotional center and her commanding, dark-hued timbre threads into Dean’s music flawlessly.” -Exeunt Magazine

"...Thompson’s vocals were the most interesting. Her sound is sultry and deep, like Adele. The way she drew out her syllables when singing “You’ll Be in My Heart” made for an original rendition of a classic song. The strain in her voice made the song pull even harder at my heartstrings." *Playback:stl
