The Phantom Of The Opera

“…both the Phantom….and Christine (beautifully but unpretentiously sung by Elizabeth Loyacano) have more than enough time to give their characters considerable emotional oomph.”

 -Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune


“…Loyacano has a crystalline soprano voice that easily navigates  the sea of octaves her solos require.”  

-Miriam Di Nunzio, Chicago Sun Times-


“…Elizabeth Loyacano gave a virtuoso performance and richly deserved her thunderous applause.”

-Robin Leach,


“Elizabeth Loyacano was a lovely Christine Daae…Her voice is thrilling and she can act, too.

Hers was just a lovely performance.”

 -Michaelina Bellamy, Vegas Community On Line


 “…amazing vocal talent…”

-Kristine McKenzie,


“Elizabeth Loyacano was a sweet-voiced Christine”

-Lawrence A. Johnson, South Florida Sun-Sentinel

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

“…seemed that Stanek was born to play an Irish tenor and woo Loyacano, a soprano whose voice,  when at full-throttle, could make the rocks weep. It’s hard not to love them and wish them well, knowing full well their romance will not have a happy ending….” 

-Paulanne Simmons,


“Elizabeth Loyacano is strong as the traditional Broadway heroine Katie, and she has a captivating stage presence.  It would have been nice to see her character more in the middle sections of the musical.”

-Jason S. Grossman,


“…Loyacano beautifully conveys Katie’s inner resolve… “

-Frank Scheck, NY Post


“Loyacano and Stanek work assiduously in both halves of the show.   Early on, they find the sweetness in the couple’s impetuous early days…..
And, as the marriage fails and life becomes increasingly difficult for Katie, Loyacano’s performance takes on a decided hardness that can be chilling.”

-Andy Props,


“…Wackerman has found a talented cast to perform this unusual mix of comedy and melodrama, which has been rarely performed over the years..
Elizabeth Loyacano also sings beautifully as Katie, particularly the heartfelt ballad,
“Make the Man Love Me.” Katie’s youthful hope and sweet love harden into bitter coldness…during the years she spends in angry poverty with her unrealistic, alcoholic husband.”
