Stage Whispers - "Bianca Baykara was perfect as Rosalia."
Theatrepeople - "Bianca Baykara is a treat as Rosalia. She has a lot of energy and a strong voice. She draws your attention in “America”, but more impressively delivers a haunting and hallowed “Somewhere".
BroadwayWorld - "Proving that it doesn't take a lead role to make an impression were various smaller and cameo roles...Bianca Baykara as Rosalia, brought a bright light to the stage."

BroadwayWorld.com - "Bianca Baykara had legs for days and a voice to match, her potrayal of Marta making all the difference in how much hope the audience left with."
Stage Whispers - "Bianca Baykara is one of my current favourite performers."
Classic Melbourne - "As Marta, Bianca Baykara gives the conflicted wonderment of the hippy girl caught up in the thrall of New York's business in the song of urban alienation "Another Hundred People". It's a memorable performance."
The Age - "Carina Waye, Madeleine Mackenzie and Bianca Baykara are terrific in You Could Drive A Person Crazy, the Andrews Sisters-like pastiche sung by Robert's lovers."
AussieTheatre - "Nothing shines brighter than Robert's trio of girlfriend all-sorts as they step out singing and dancing in 'You Could Drive A Person Crazy' with blastedly great fun."
TheatrePeople - "The close harmonies of ‘You Could Drive a Person Crazy’ by the trio of Robert’s girlfriends is a sensation. Carina Waye as April, Madeleine Mackenzie as Kathy and Bianca Baykara as Marta do a brilliant job of conveying Sondheim’s densely packed lyrics with Michael Ralph’s equally detailed choreography to create a captivating version of this popular number."
