The reviews are in for “Yellow Moon – The Ballad of Leila and Lee” and they are fantastic!

“The actors are bloody well incredible. Compelling. Even thrilling. Danielle Cormack Ken Moraleda and John Shrimpton, especially.”

“His would-be stepdad, Billy (Moraleda), is an amateur boxing bastard. His real father, Frank (intriguingly, also played, to captivating effect, by Moraleda)”

-Lloyd Bradford Syke (Curtain Call – Crickey Blog)

“The cast is quite strong with the two young leads in Estasy and Shrimpton finding a beautiful chemistry together, brewing with hormonal desire. Their older counterparts in Danielle Cormack (who I can’t help but mention used to be in Xena) and Kenneth Moraleda bring an equally playful energy to the small stage.”

“Kenneth Moraleda’s heatfelt rendition of “Take On Me” was truly a highlight”

– Simon Binns (The Perf)

**** (Four Stars)

“You’ll rarely find the lyrical and the physical meeting each other halfway as well as in Yellow Moon. It’s an energetic, energising piece of theatre”

“Danielle Cormack and Kenneth Moraleda are also very good in the many tasks the writer has given them….

It is also refreshing to observe the non-racial casting of Mr Shrimpton and Mr Moraleda in this work and white blackboard (the production company) ought to be congratulated and be remarked upon in this interesting choice. It augers well, I hope, that more of this will happen in Sydney and Australia. Many, many talented actors of racial differentiation have found the opportunity to use their gifts and their drama school training, talents, thwarted by antiquated myopia in the casting of performance in this country. More power to the vision and talents of a company such as this. Congratulations. Attention must be paid and changes applied.”
