Review of Nellie Bly after an appearance at The New Hampshire Humanities Council Chautauqua event:

"It's always great fun to see a new character emerge on the Chautauqua stage but Anne's portrayal of Nellie Bly was especially rewarding; she and Nellie provided a most informative presentation and graced the stage with wit and charm. I'd highly reccommend Ms. Pasquale - a.k.a Nellie Bly - to any and all Chautauqua presenters."
- Dick Johnson, Ph.S., Professor of American History, and Chautauqua Scholar
