"I made it a Hot Pick last weekend, so it would have to be as good as any professional production at the McCallum to make it in there two weekends in a row... it’s an opportunity to discover some new talent with the potential to go places. I especially liked Jessie Massoudi as Gertrude McFuzz... She has a young, quirky Elizabeth McGovern quality as Gertrude, and moves with distinctive personality — finding just the right balance of camp and economy of movement. She also knows how to sell a song with personality. She helps bring the show to a satisfying conclusion with the big ballad, 'All For You...'"

"So professional and delightful, definitely one of the best acts in what I think was overall the highest level I've seen at Open Call!"

"You can hear in Jessie Massoudi’s smoky haze that there is a myriad of colors to her operatically trained instrument. Think Pink and Aerosmith wrapped up with Britney Spears! This Singer/Songwriter’s originals like “Too Far,” “Come with me,” and “Who?” should not be missed."
