THE RING AND THE BOOK [1999], LA Weekly newspaper of California, Volume 21, Number 40, August 27-September 2, 1999, page 97, Jim Crogan writes However, guided by Brenda Urquhart polished direction, this talented ensemble has adapted poet Robert Browning eponymous two-volume book set with a kind of flair that results in an intriguing theater spectacle. Penned over 1868 and 1869, Browning writings studied a sensational 17th-century trial that took place in Rome. This adaptation recounts the murderous events that follow the failed marriage between Count Guido Franceschini (Richard Chassler) and the much younger Pompilia Comparini (Lisa Zee Ziembicki). {Armstrong Browning Library, Baylor University, Waco, Texas} and {Balliol College Library, University of Oxford, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England}

Observer student newspaper insert, Rutgers of The State University Of New Jersey in New Brunswick, May 1990, Nolan H. Rhodes writes Like in the famous Wizard of Oz this play has its haughty character. A witch who brews her contempt for the sweet innocence of Pandora while attempting to foil Zeus plans. Trickery gains the witch her demise in the form of violent, profane modern monsters. Leona Toussaint plays this role to the hilt. Her acting is unbelievable as she executes curiosity for a look see in the famous Pandoras Box.
