"Ms. Jung's performance that evening was absolutely superb. Our guests were thrilled and delighted with her dazzling portrayal of Catherine de Medicis, whom she seemingly brought back to life for a brief interlude. Ms. Jung clearly possesses extraordinary talent and her enchanting, spirited performance greatly enhanced and complemented the charming ambience of the evening."

"Mary Ann's portrayal of Rosie the Riveter was "gosh darn" perfect. From costume and character to well-researched stories, she captured the essence of life in the factory, difficulties at home, and even the impact of politics and public opinion during World War II. Her performance takes living history to new heights. An unforgettable and educational experience!"

"I just wanted to drop a short note to let you know how very much I enjoyed your magnificent portrayal of Elizabeth I... Your rich interpretation with its wonderful grasp of the language and culture of Tudor England served them well. You present a most believable, impressive, and appealing queen, one surely worthy of her own words:

I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and a king of England too!"

H. William DeWeese
