"A wonderful, fado - inspired score." The Guardian

"Excellent original score" Broadwayworld

"Wonderful music... delightful" Mark Ronan Theatre Reviews

"Fabulous original music by Frank Moon is so close to the soul it could be Russian... the two dancers must feel it in their bones." British Theatre Guide

"Evocative, transporting music" British Theatre Guide 

"A special mention also to Frank Moon, composer and performer of the music in Facada. Plucked strings set us on edge, frenzied strings matches the hysteria and banging drums lead the carnage." Londonist

"Extraordinary Fado-based music" The Stage

"A terrific musical composition that brings out all the hope and joy of a bride on her wedding day only for the tone to plummet dramatically into an intense score with agitated strings and thundering drum beats." Victoria Sadler
