–Tom Holehan, Connecticut Critics Circle

And one from memory lane with love…

MAN OF LA MANCHA, Forestburgh Playhouse

“Rebecca Hoodwin’s Aldonza/Dulcinea is earthy, coarse and sexual…. to her credit she shows the vulnerable girl beneath the ill-used and hard exterior.  Her rendition of “It’s All the Same,” “What Do You Want of Me,” and her dramatic “Aldonza” gives credence to her long list of performance credits.  She evinces a stage presence and experience which amply compliments the Forestburgh Playhouse standards…”
–Barbara Newberg, The Mountain News
