"Especially strong is Sam Paley, who approaches "Is This Not Love?" as if she could lift the burdens of the thwarted lovers off their shoulders." 

"Sam Paley is a mischievous wink in human form."

"The absolute highpoint comes during the knowing and quietly desperate scene when the fool Feste (an extremely confident and understated Sam Paley,) serenades Viola and Orsino while they privately agonize about their confused feelings. Perceptive moments like these can stick with an audience for years."
