Lilia! is world-class entertainment. Six years later, I still have your program ...I keep it on my desk to remind me of what a memorable performance you gave!
         - Pat Beeks, Events Manager, DESERT VIEW PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, Tucson, AZ

“Pacific Theatre presented Lilia!, as the opening to our 23rd season [for a three-week, 15-performance run].  The show was a tremendous success.  Audience response was extremely positive, Lilia! met critical acclaim from all the major newspapers in Vancouver.  It drew considerably more radio and television attention than we are accustomed to, and exceeded our revenue projections.  Ms. Skala was a delightful contribution to the atmosphere around our theatre company and the administrative staff and I are grateful for her involvement in our season.  I recommend both Libby and her show without reservation.”
         - Ron Reed, Founding Artistic Director, PACIFIC THEATRE, Vancouver, BC

“We had a performance event here last week that included one of the finest performances I have ever seen anywhere.  Libby Skala made the Guild shine that night.”

“It was a honour and joy to have Libby Skala as a guest artist in our community.  Lilia! was a truly captivating story, so sensitively and truly told.  As a teacher of European history, I am enthusiastic about the concept of presenting this true adventure to students – what a way to make history come alive!  Libby Skala is an outstanding actor.  In her moving presentation of Lilia! her acting ability is immeasurably enhanced by her demeanor, appearance and her love for her grandmother.  I recommend Libby Skala as an absolute delight for any group of young people with an interest in life’s challenges, successes and tragedies.”

“Lilia came alive as promised. From the moment you entered the stage you had the audience in the palm of your hand. The subtle changes with your shawl gave us definition to the scene changes. The skillful use of voices had us seeing your grandmother or little Libby, a teen-age Libby... with clarity and instant identification. Thank you so much for your gift of performance. It was lovely to see you again and I hope you enjoyed your visit to Principia as much as we enjoyed having you here.”
          - Kim Browning, Director

“We continue to be grateful for your performance at The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity – it is the strength, courage and achievements of women like your grandmother that have inspired the growing interest in women’s “untold stories,” and your show contributed something so special to our efforts to foster greater awareness of women’s accomplishments and their vital role in leadership. All the best to you as you continue to introduce Lilia! to captivated audiences!

         - Ann Epner, Program Director, THE ROXBURY ARTS GROUP, Roxbury NY

Lilia! was a great hit with both the conference attendees, who tend to be a picky crowd, and the local community. My technical director said she was the easiest person he worked with the entire week, which features seven shows in seven days.  She also taught two well-received workshops for us. In short, I give my whole-hearted recommendation for Libby and Lilia!.  They are a good addition to any company’s season.”
