"A long overdue note, especially in view of the marvel your performance meant to me. If I had kept a diary, the entry would be 'Tonight was the night I fell in love with Lisl - Libby.' And then it would continue, 'But was it Lisl? Or was it with Libby? Help me, diary, for I could not easily tell the difference.  They were both so much one! What do I do?!' Libby, it was a gift to be treasured by all lucky enough to be there. " ...I have seen both shows [Lilia! and A Time to Dance] and was entranced. The second on dance stirred me deeply. "
- Richard Morse, actor, teacher, mime artist & author of THEATRE: ITS HEALING ROLE IN EDUCATION
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"A Time to Dance was absolutely spectacular. My warmest congratulations to Libby for a marvelous performance and a masterful job of writing the show. It was wonderful from beginning to end...I just wish I had known Lisl in person...I feel I do know her, at least a little bit, from the fantastic script and performance, but she must have been really something 'in real life.' Thank you, also, to Pactific Theatre for sponsoring and supporting Libby as an artist and for sharing her gifts with your audience."
- Margaret Cottle, Vancouver, BC

"Just wanted to tell you again how much I LOVED your show. I was so impressed! I keep thinking about the incredible joy you expressed from subtle eye movements to dancing around the stage."
- Janice Lathen, New York, NY
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"So much of your play was important to me, I had to relive scenes for my friends and my husband when I got home (complete with accent).  Amused, they wished they'd seen the real thing.  The girls, by the way, found your show mesmerizing.  They said that they were still talking about it and reliving scenes.  One is from a Puerto Rican family, the first in her family to graduate from High School, now attending college.  The other is a Nigerian girl whose passion is dance and history studies.  To both of them I know your play was a wide open window, pouring in fresh air."
- Diane Allison, Brooklyn, NY
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"We didn't get a chance to see you after the show, and we wanted to tell you what an oustanding performance you gave. We have the advantage of visiting many of the places you descirbed, and reading 'The Magic Mountain.' Your Aunt was certainly one of a kind, and you showed great creativity and talent in telling her story. I hope we will see you again soon."
- Sandy & Jay Williams, Scottsdale, AZ

"The first time I heard that "Libby Skala's performance" existed, I KNEW it would be special and it certainly was.  What a touching tribute Libby has given both to her grand Aunt, her whole family and Elizabeth's d/mt family.  The performance was absolutely wonderful and I think we were very fortunate....How often do we have an opportunity to see a professional, one-woman show about a dance therapist?  Fantastic."
- Susan Kleinman, Dance Therapist
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated Libby Skala's performance. There were so many
characteristics -- movement, speech, sentence structure, etc. -- that so reminded me of Elizabeth, I felt I could reminisce and feel her presence so deeply.  It was one of the best things I've seen at a conference in the longest time."
- Elissa White, Dance Therapist
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"The performance was so so fantastic!  I loved it!  We got some wonderful photos...  Thank you so much for recommending this show, it was the perfect place for it to be performed.  So glad it was such a success.  I bought a CD at the show and am so excited to listen to it."
- Christina Devereaux, Board Member of American Dance Therapy Association
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Stephen Jobes, New York, NY
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"The show was wonderful! It is as different from LILIA! as your aunt Lisl was different from her sister. I came with a friend who had never met Lisl, and therefore had no expectations. My friend thought that the entire show was just magical! I thought so too.  The life was so rich in experience. Your performance was as wonderful as the text! Bravo! Bravo!"
- Rhoda-Neshama Waller, New York, NY
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I LOVED the performance! Libby Skala played with so much feeling and enthusiasm and humour, and I loved the Austrian accent.  That's what helped make it so real, so alive!  It was absolutely wonderful and made my day.  A delight!  I would LOVE to see this performance again.  If LiLiA! is anything like A TIME TO DANCE, then I would love to see it as well."
- Deka Idsinga, London, ON, Canada

"Once again kudo's extended to Libby Skala in her mesmerizing performance of A Time to Dance
After seeing last year's Lilia performance, I was greatly anticipating this new performance. Let me tell you, she was not disappointing. She's an absolutely great storyteller and I hope we'll continue to see her in the future. Thank you for bringing such diverse and interesting theater to Desert Foothills Theatre and the community."
- Michele, Desert Foothills Theatre, Scottsdale, AZ 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
