  • “Aryssa Leigh Burrs, Robert Wesley Mason, and Melissa Wimbish are the triumvirate of artists on stage who weave the song cycle into the stories of the night. They bring operatic voices, graceful physicality, and intensely connected acting and interacting to each of the songs. Mason roars and growls and introspects in bold baritone bravado and tosses out the occasional bit of tenor rock and roll to keep the ghost of Elvis alive.”
    -DC Metro Theater Arts

  • “All three singers are game and work the steeplechase of vocal styles that Costello and Co. throw at them. They don’t back off from pushing a punk rock number. Neither are they above a musical belt or a growl.  But the performers can, on a dime go into a bel canto sound when called on. Robert Wesley Mason has a metallic ping in his sound that he uses to great effect straddling vocal styles. Hailing from Norfolk, Virginia, he can pull out a drawl like twang and convince us he might be someone on the circuit playing country rock then turn around and nail it as a ‘serious’ baritone.” -DC Theatre Scene

  • “Dashing Robert Wesley Mason has a lot to do, representing every male voice in the song cycle, but adjusts accordingly and with authority.” -Broadway World
