"The Vision is so grand and florid and strangely evocative... flamboyant yet somehow never frivolous..." - Time Out

"Woven into these extraordinary events and lengthy discussions of 19th century politics are themes of decadence, disguise and self-mythologizing… Exquisite stage pictures and performances." - Village Voice

"As she flies away in her carriage toward an unknown future, there is no doubt that this Lola has been impressed on our memories… as a symbol of the futility of flight, and the loneliness that comes with giving yourself up to other's fantasies." - Show Business

"Jahnke wisely focuses on on a single episode: the day of Lola's expulsion from Ludwig I's Bavarian kingdom in 1848… sophisticated deconstruction of the abject fascination Ludwig I had for Lola." - On Stage

"Montez is skillfully woven… gives a humorously compassionate view of a very human predicament. Go see it for its merits as a piece of theater." - Fringe Propaganda
