What They’re Saying!

"Rosario Amico has all the right moves, not to mention the vocal chops, for the hip-swiveling Birdie"

- Queens Chronicle

"Amico’s performance is nothing short of commendable, as he delivers poignant and wisdom-filled video messages to his son, capturing the essence of fatherhood and the sacrifices made in times of war. His acting is touching and heartfelt, resonating deeply with viewers and leaving a lasting impact."

- Short Films Matter

"Rosario Amico (as Billy Crocker) and Paul Inglese (as Moonface Martin), who play off each other like a couple of old pros. They milk every comic moment for all it’s worth, occasionally stepping over into the realm of slapstick. The entire show, in fact, takes on a cartoon-like feel."
