“ Erin Elizabeth Eichhorn is currently filling shoes once occupied by Judy Kuhn and Crista Moore. The happy surprise is they fit her superbly.”
“She mimes every bit of anguish out of Bella, with her heart stopping rendition, (and this is not an easy song to sing!) so much so, that, good as the rest of the show’s score is, nothing ever tops this moment!”
“Erin Elizabeth Eichhorn beautifully sings the haunting “That Rainy Day’”
