The Journal News

“Their show, a blend of monologue and songs, explores a trajectory of emotion, the elation and exhaustion of parenthood and the triumphs and disappointments of professional achievement. “I wipe my baby’s chin with my college diploma and wonder, ‘Did I walk all this way in my fuzzy slippers?’ ”

Back Stage

“HOP is an over the top rock band that performs songs about the drudgery of cleaning while accessorizing with plastic dolls and cereal boxes. Rose moans, grunts and shows off her vibrato on songs like “Slow Motion Emotion” and “Heart Wants” with a soulful, theatrical sound — A cross between Heart and The B-52’s, but visually very Pricilla, Queen of the Desert.”
The News-Times Weekend

“It isn’t May without Mamapalooza.”
Westchester Family Magazine

“This is my 3rd year coming. Thank you for all you do Mamapalooza.”
