Starlight Express Credits
"The evening’s stand-out performance came from Julian Cannonier who plays Poppa, an aging steam train, who inspires Rusty to look to the “Starlight Express” and find the strength to take on his diesel and electric rivals. Julian’s larger-than-life and humorous portrayal of Poppa connected with and charmed the audience." littledayout.com review
