“Mama Margaret White, was played to near-perfection by Leah Walton. Walton’s Mama White combined Piper Laurie’s brand of “Mommie Dearest”-level evil with the comedic timing, delivery, and physicality of Ruth Buzzi. Granted, Mama White gets some of the best lines in the play, waxing poetic about blood, boys, and dirty pillows, but Walton makes them even funnier.”

10% OF MOLLY SNYDER
“Walton may have the most challenging of the two roles-in the face of the increasingly absurd logic Braithwaite's character spews, she holds fast as our anchor to reality, as it is her charge to bring reason into the absurdist comedy without being a downer.
Her pointed efforts to keep her cool eventually disintegrates into wild disbelief, rage and finally into a homicidal frenzy. Walton delivers this progression with such dexterity, it leaves the audience not only captivated, but sympathetic, wanting to see her prevail.”

-Philadelphia Weekly 10.26.05

-Delaware County News Network 7.16.13
