From the press:
"(...) hustler Jojo, performed to perfection by John Addison, always with a smile lolling on his face as if it's wondering in which disingenuous direction to turn." Paul Taylor, The Independent
"As in "Ghost", John Addison is vocally and dramatically convincing, particularly giving the transformation scenes a goose bump effect." Rolf-Ruediger Hamacher, Strandgut
" John Addison brings an impressive fury to the role and a tenor to match." Matt Wolf, The New York Times
"Addison is simply phenomenal and registers all the layers of this complex and vocally demanding double role." Musical Theatre Review
