A New Brain at Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre

"director Fred Anzevino has packed his ensemble with energetic, near virtuosic performers—Chase Heinemann is especially winning as the fictionalized Finn (here Schwinn), though it's newcomer Tyler Franklin, still only a junior at Columbia College, who steals the show. - Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader

"Tyler Franklin (Rhoda) – Ok. Your emotional commitment was everything-Brava. Emotional intensity for the win!" - Bob Bullen, Huff Post

"Anzevino has assembled a fabulous cast whose vocal power, acting chops and ensemble cohesion suggests long years of experience. Yet Heinemann just graduated from the Chicago College for the Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, Schreier is making his Chicago debut, and Franklin is currently a junior at Columbia College — and all are exceptional."- Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times


Tonya & Nancy: The Rock Opera

The extremely talented ensemble played lots of different parts [including]--Tyler Symone Franklin as Surya Bonaly" - Carole Moore,  Around the Town Chicago

"Genevieve Perrino’s Oksana Baiul, Mari Uchida’s Kristi Yamaguchi and Tyler Symone’s Surya Bonaly are all winners on ice in this production."- Chicago Theatre Review

Caroline Or Change

“Domestic Technician Caroline Thibodeaux conducts her daily laundry duties with the help of a new state-of-the-art sentient washer and dryer unit (powerhouse vocal duo Tyler Symone and Micheal Lovette, respectively.)” - Perform Ink Chicago, Sheri Flanders

Symone and Lovette have a playful, vibrant energy as Washer and Dryer (they also double as Moon and Bus). - Broadway World, Rachel Weinberg

“Tyler Symone, who plays both the sassy inner voice of the washing machine and the dreamy voice of the Moon, is superb.” - WTTW Chicago, Hedy Weiss

“Imagine beaming with joy at a hip-shaking washing machine (Tyler Symone) and add to that  three Motown girl group styled singing and dancing Radios, replete with now banned radioactive luminescent dials of the 60's”…”We also begin to long for Tyler Symone to return as the Moon, another character she plays.”- Picture This Post, Amy Munice

“Amid the drama and realism of this play there are several anthropomorphic characters that add an element of whimsy to balance out the seriousness. The moon and the washing machine (beautifully played by Tyler Symone)” - Chicago Theatre Review, Colin Douglas
