At Ogunquit Playhouse
"The diminutive Rapa is a charmer throughout, adding that girl-on-the-verge- of-womanhood angle to "I Have a Dream" and "Slipping Through My Fingers." Her nightmare number, "Under Attack," starts the second act off on a highly-imaginative note." -BroadwayWorld
At Gateway Playhouse
"The cast of this production is amazing. Rapa’s lovely voice and adorable energy were the perfect compliments to her character, with the added bonus of believable chemistry between her and Mike Heslin as Sky. Their duet of “Lay All Your Love on Me” was beautifully harmonized."
[Rapa] is a triumph! -Artscope Magazine
