'Pasquini really impresses in both characters, the flamboyant Paola in particular is a real highlight and deserves her own sketch show'                  { ...a sketch show with two characters? Yes Please!}                              A younger Theatre, If I were Me   
Pasquini is delightfully witty...and her timing is impeccable* - {*flawless, faultless, unblemished, unimpeachable, not liable to sin}        The New Current, Where The White Stops
...masterfully controls her dead pan quips - {fry them with a little salt}  Exeunt, Where The White Stops
