What the critics had to say

Under the music direction of Kristen Long, who also accompanies on the piano, their voices blend perfectly as Loeb pulls Leopold into each escalating emotional transaction.” - JW Arnold

South Florida Gay News

The 16 solo piano songs, performed beautifully and funereally onstage by music director Kristen Long, resemble Sondheim both in their clever blackness and difficult fluidity, with the actors required to drift in and out of song. Both achieve this without missing a beat.” - John Thomason

Whitcomb has the machinery of this musical humming along nicely. Along with music director Kristen Long, the show at times feels powered by fusion.” - Rod Stafford Hagwood

Sun-Sentinel

..Artistic Director Skye Whitcomb and Music Director Kristen Long have created an emotionally satisfying evening...Long did a fine job guiding the cast through the interweaving vocal arrangements and led a first-rate band that included Butler on guitar, David Carrey on bass and Mark Annino on drums.” - Bill Hirschman

The cast knows how to deliver the rock-tempo songs and a wonderful four-piece band, led by music director Kristen Long (a musical composer herself), never misses a beat.” - Michelle Solomon

Miami Art Zine

Musical director/keyboardist Kristen Long led the rock band of Wayne Rediker, Martha Spangler and Walt Brewer. She also pinch-hit as a sometime narrator and sang one of the atypically lovely ballads, “Second Nature.”” - Bill Hershman

American Idiot succeeds in making Green Day's music, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's lyrics, and Armstrong and Michael Mayer's book come alive. A very talented live band directed by Kristen Long is a constant presence onstage. Not only do these skillful musicians remind us that American Idiot is rooted in an album that is played in its entirety throughout the show, it also adds the realism of being at a concert and of having an orchestra.” - Cindy Pierre

Talkin Broadway

Hearing these singers open their vocal spleen in pulsating powerful performances to Long’s scorching heartfelt music make it worth the price of admission.” - Bill Hershman

Florida Theatre Onstage

Long’s music is an effective mélange of rock, jazz, reggae, torch, scat and a few other genres that are both melodic and moving. ” - Bill Hershman
