"He [Mika] is a consumate artist and hugely creative - the singer, the dancer, the dresser; the whole package."
- Express Newspaper
"Renowned composers Gareth Farr and Steve Robinson, along with Mika, have made a delicious score. They have written several brilliant pop songs as well as numerous warm emotive orchestral passages."
- Kate Ward-Smythe for TheatreReview
"The very capable Auckland Philly made the events on stage seem epic. The songs themselves were stirring"
