"Payton Moledor is equally talented as Stephanie. She has an impressive voice, and can belt out a phrase as needed. I also like the unique cadence of her delivery that made her sound distinct."

"Other actors throw sparks of their own. Moledor, as Katherine, careens between hysterical and exultant as she tries to sit down and write the story that will make or break the strike – and her career."

"Lesser roles shine too. Payton Moledor is excellent as Myrtle Mae, Veta’s daughter who just wants a normal family."
