Theatre is Easy, by Shoshana Roberts
"Zenith and Stowe collaborated cohesively on this piece to the point that I was not able to see any ripping seams, or even a loose thread. The stitches that make up this woven tale are tight and smooth."
"Zenith brings a unique and enjoyable perspective to the solo show genre."
"Zenith is an asset to the acting world."
Stage Buddy, by Christine Cali
