"Pure Magic... These four [Harada, Sesma, Ku and Loh] gave me awe."
--Wesley Morris, THE NEW YORK TIMES (12/04/2020)
"Two numbers, though, were so well conceived for this strange new medium that they left what might be a permanent imprint on the songs themselves. "Someone in a Tree," which Sondheim has called his favorite of his own songs... Ann Harada, Austin Ku, Kelvin Moon Loh, and Thom Sesma performed it, in that now familiar "Brady Bunch" configuration, communicating through earpieces, and the song felt newly suspenseful and disjointed, like something out of a surveillance thriller."
--Michael Schulman, THE NEW YORKER (04/27/2020)
