“…an intimate male/female duet for Princess Grace Award winners Andrea Parson and Franco Nieto, Sarah has found inspiration in Pablo Neruda’s poem, “Tonight I Can Write the Saddest Lines.”” (Oregon Jewish Life)

“…a sweet and often funny dance of love and loss performed beautifully by Andrea Parson and Franco Nieto.” (Oregon ArtsWatch)

“…a lovely and wily two-hander that felt much like the Pablo Neruda poem upon which it is based. The 20-minute piece [moves] from a delicate connection between two lovers to an energetic, Fosse-like burst to something mournful and contemplative. The overall effect felt like a lovely grace note…” (Portland Mercury)
