Theatre:

"As Saxvik’s bearded, loose-limbed Teddy settles in, he is immensely, effortlessly endearing. He moves expressively and without pretense and is generous in his laughter; the bond between him and Elizabeth builds with warmth, candor, and easy understatement. “You were a gift,” Elizabeth tells Teddy. When Teddy, visibly moved, responds, “Well, that’s good,” it’s all he needs to say." -Portland Phoenix

"This is a bare-bones production in a tiny theater, but the cast and the director, Chris Henry, give it texture and depth…the saddest moment of all is Pat’s (Saxvik) entrance in the penultimate scene. His hands are bandaged just like his father’s." -NY Times

"As Teddy, Saxvik is charmingly clueless about Elizabeth’s illness but his portrayal is so heartfelt that it’s impossible not to love the irresponsible musician. It is through Saxvik’s open and engaging performance that the audience learns of Elizabeth’s difficult childhood and accessing her emotionally." -Bangor Daily News
