Nova Makedonija newspaper [23.09.2014]:

"Each of the 10 young actors brought a different aspect of the Ellen Stewart’s character: her joy, her passion, her cheerful humor, her fight against the racial discrimination, everything for the purpose of creating a world of theater, which continues to be a lighthouse of the artists throughout the world. That’s how, in the overcrowded hall of the cinema “Frosina”, the present audience met the eternal spirit of Ellen Stewart."

"The young actors from New York, easily won the sympathies of the audience. Their wonderful voices, the simplicity in their approach, the unpretentious compositions, the recorded videos of Ellen Stewart, the countless photos and historical facts of the theater La MaMa create a musical performance that is based on the spirit of the theater, and yet it reveals the fantastic qualities of the young performers. It would be pretentious to say that this performance is a spectacle – because it is one of the most subtle and spiritual performances ever played on this stage."

Globus Magazine [23.09.2014] written by Ljiljana Mazova:

"La MaMa and Ellen Stewart I’ve seen many times. In different destinations. Always as a form of attraction which presents the power of the theater to change the world… This time, in “Cantata” it is wrapped, armed, sang and danced as a story that vividly, through words, photos and music, and an excellent group of actors/singers takes us on a trip inside our souls, in the past times as well as the times that come. They bring out views that we recognize, with well-known characters that on this or that way – triggered the need in Ellen to bring changes."
