"Lehman brings her radiant looks and voice to the role of Meg. Setting sail on the Love Boat and providing a textured performance. "

"Friday night’s audience laughed hard at young lovers Mariane (Kayla Lehman) and Valere (Zach Manthey), who engage in a very stubborn, tantrum-like fight. "

"Thanks to the Bard’s clever wordplay, every one of the 18 characters...gets at least a few laugh lines – even Dull, the phlegmatic country constable (played by a toothpick-chomping Kayla Lehman). Dull’s turn came with a quick comeback to the stuffed shirt Holofernes (Zach Palumbo), who – after a rambling, long-winded and esoteric speech – notes that the blank-faced Dull “hast spoken no word all this while.” “Nor understood none neither, sir,” Dull replies in perfect deadpan, possibly echoing the thoughts of some in the audience."

"How does a New York drama critic spend his Friday nights when Broadway’s theaters are closed up tight? I don’t know about my colleagues, but I curled up on the couch with my laptop last week and watched a live performance in Akron, Ohio, of Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost.' ... I found myself asking as I watched: What am I getting out of this experience? Why am I so moved? Exactly what do masterpieces have to say to us at moments like these?"
-Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal (Love's Labour's Lost)
"Honey....is the true innocent of the bunch. She’s played sweetly by Kayla Lehman, who gives her a ditzy, tipsy air. "
