    Washington Post

    New York Magazine

  • The Poser seduces with its imaginative energy, the sheer wit and reach of its invention, but is propelled at its core by a deeply human generosity to its characters—their fierce and confused and fragile hearts.”

    Leslie Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams

  • “A story with a number of distinctive characters requires a similarly diverse performer to do it justice. Robert Fass demonstrates an impressive talent for impersonating all types of people to the extent that the listener barely needs to hear dialogue tag. Fass voices the lonely small-town boy, the big-city talent manager, and many other characters with great skill and delight…[Overall a] superb listening experience.”
