"Skiba's first-rate stage direction was vivid and emotionally charged.""

-The Plain Dealer

"Skiba used every inch of space to maximum effect" 

-coolcleveland.com

"Skiba found and brought out a variety of subtle nuances in his staging"

- Cleveland Classical

"Skiba had the cast racing about the stage and around

the theater with Swiss clock-like precision."

"Skiba’s canny direction and use of space allowed facial expressions and the smallest of gestures to read clearly to the back row."
