Edmonton Sun 2001 - "Pantalone (Stephen La Frenie- displaying the mastery of physical comedy that his years as a mime have left him)..."
Edmonton Sun 2012 - "...LaFrenie is a one-man ballet company using his natural grace and supple body to express a myriad of emotions without saying a word."
Toronto Star - "...solid evidence of mime’s power to soar beyond the cloying schtick of those insufferable, smirking, white-faced clones of Marcel Marceau...Individual scenes often seem like a kind of theatrical poetry, as a full spectrum of emotion is distilled and expressed through understated gestures with a fluidity approaching dance."
