"The young Van Tieghem, who is only in high school, blew the socks off of her character as well. She showed a wise depth and the poise of a seasoned actress." - Sydney Arndt, Woman Around Town

"But, it is Zoe Van Tieghem’s performance that awed me, she is a child when she enters the cave, precocious and sometimes obnoxious, as she calls out for “momma” in her higher register, but she discovers her power as a woman while struggling to survive, it is an almost unbearable blossoming to watch; suddenly she is aware of the dangers, and when dealing with a one-arm soldier that temporarily takes shelter with them, she is even turned on by the danger.  This is not your mother’s southern belle."  - Montserrat Mendez


Zoe Van Tieghem plays Echo with a calm, self-assured manner needed to convince the audience that she can bridge the gap between her mother and grandmother. The character of Echo is strong and she has the determination and perseverance to make it happen. - Karen Nowosad 

It was one of the most impressive plays I have seen, and what made it even more enjoyable were the topics - the portrayal of how the relationship between a mother and daughter is very sensitive and that there is no 'correct' way of parenting were extremely important themes that are not, surprisingly, shown in many plays/musicals. - Show Score
