To Jose Ruiz,

Your review of our client Daniel Felix de Weldon's performance in Kingdom of Earth is not in perspective to his portrayal of the character, but rather more of a commentary on the character itself. Please consider the difference between the two when reporting.



Hello Jose,

I enjoyed meeting you at the Nov. 23, 2014  Colburn concert at Sierra Madre Playhouse.  And I also enjoyed the review you wrote after the Oct. concert by the Alma String Quartet.  It’s so helpful to have feedback from someone with your background and experience! 

I look forward to seeing you at future Colburn events.

With best wishes for a happy holiday,


Susan Heard

Dear Mr. Ruiz,

After reading your review, some of us almost fainted!!

Until the opening day, we had no idea how the audience will react.

It was a huge risk for us to do this huge amount of play in Japanese with subtitles.

But after reading your review, we are all so happy to know that our risk got paid off!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for coming that opening night!!

We are all really appreciate that you came and gave us a wonderful gift!!

We will work very hard until the closing night!!!

Love and with sincere appreciation,

from Sachiyo K as Lady Bracknell


I sincerely thank you so much for your support!!

Carol: Thank you so much for such a heartfelt critique of our new play, 1NY.  It feels like the umbilical cord is still attached and I'm glad you treated us like the adolescents we are.

Come back when we grow up!

Much thanks,  Harry Hamlin



Great review. Except Honabigi isn’t indigent, she’s aboriginal or indigenous. Unlike her boyfriend Bruno, she has a good job! (Moose on the Loose)

I would like to thank Jose Ruiz for a beautiful, brilliant, eloquent, educated, articulate review of "South of Delancey". I was absolutely blown away that he remembered me from "The Nun and the Countess". I put his reviews on my resume from my role as the Countess!

And I am not just complimenting his writing because he spoke well of our show, but I want him to know I really appreciated his attention to details. He really got it. He understood every aspect of the plot, the story, the characters, the depth and nuances of the period and the people, (which a lot of reviewers missed). I just want to say thank you. . . .
