Peter, the man who broke her, shows up, unannounced, brooding, painfully charming, and he tries his best to selfishly rekindle what should probably never have even begun. He is played to perfection by Robert Yacko. - Samantha Simmonds-Ronceros, NoHoArtsDistrict

Opening Doors as is is certainly a wonderfully riveting presentation of songs and stories of this terrific singer's life. His powerhouse voice pulls you in, keeps you listening attentively and never lets go. Don't miss Robert Yacko when he performs this or any other show.

Yacko portrays Vandergelder as less of a broadly-drawn hot-head and more a tightly-wound or suppressed man whose paid the price getting where he is and it shows; this conveys a refreshing realism that makes all the outlandish situations that ultimately start happening around him seem that much more gleeful. - Leo Buck, Bucking Trends
Yacko is terrific in the larger than life role, capturing both the ego and the heart of a great poet. -Jeannie K. Smith , SF Bay Times
Robert Yacko as Voltaire and Rachel Harker as Emilie du Chatelet are the dazzling dynamic dipole about which this delightfully sophisticated and witty play revolves. - Jeffrey R. Smith
Robert Yacko, offers an anguished portrait of Bobby that illuminates his confusion, filling out an underwritten role by seeming to examine the defects in himself as well as the problems of the couples around him.

Sylvia's owner and leading man is portrayed beautifully by Robert Yacko... Not only is Yacko a marvelous straight man to Rigby's comic antics but he does equally fine work in scenes which require him to show Greg's inner turmoil, as when he confesses to Kate his need to "Feel more connected to life... to living". - LAStageScene.com
Mr. Yacko tears up the stage with menace and a ridiculously wounded ego, and the play's energy level picks up any time he strides onto the stage. - Santa Barbara Press

If he (Sondheim) is served by (Pamela) Myers as Dot and the aged Marie, proving she not only has the vocal fortitude for Sondheim's complexities, but also humor and great appeal, at least the same applies to Robert Yacko in the dual role of Seurat and Seurat's great-great grandson. It is a clean, reflective, melancholy and intense performance. - Sylvie Drake, L.A. TIMES
