The Little Prince, (Colorado Shakespeare Festival)
“A fox (Tony Vo), meanwhile, offers valuable insight into what moves the heart. Watching the Prince tame the easily startled Fox is one of the best scenes in the production.”
SeaWife, (Naked Angels, music written by The Lobbyists)
” ‘Glory’ (performed by Tony Vo) is a gorgeous acoustic anthem hitting that instantly hummable sweet spot.”
a cautionary tail, (The Flea Theater)
“Tony Vo was strong as Luke, bringing heart to the determined young brother.”
SeaWife, (2016 Drama Desk Nomination for Outstanding Music)
