"If Thornton Wilder were still alive to write a rock opera about five musicians dealing with issues of love, life, death and what comes after, he might choose to title it Our Band. Stefan Marks calls his play-with-songs Middle8, and for anyone whos seen the playwright-actor-director-musician-designers past work, it should come as no surprise that Middle8 is label-defyingly special." - STAGESCENE LA
"Led by a truly gifted ensemble of performers who put their souls on the line to tell this story every single performance, this story revolves around 5 childhood friends (and the women who loved them) who have formed a band... Go see and support this tour de force of a play with music. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw it moving to a larger theatre within the very near future. It deserves to be seen." - BROADWAY WORLD
"The show chronicles the life journeys of missed opportunities and fractured friendships that ultimately lead to the sadder-but-wiser recognition Its not about realizing your dreams; its about realizing your dreams have changed." - LA TIMES
"The musical numbers are just plain great." - DISCOVER HOLLYWOOD
"We care about these people, we rejoice with them we mourn them." - THE TOLUCAN TIMES
"MIDDLE8 is a buddy story, a narrative about men who share, squabble, and sing and even do some dancing as a happy hip-hop crew. Its an account about youth, dreams, and hopes and how we cant really let go of the things that matter MIDDLE8's special contribution to the theater must remain its music and the talented people who make this an unforgettable evening." LOS ANGELES SPLASH MAGAZINE
