"Three Dead Ringers for Frank, Dean & Sammy" - Mark Ritchie - The Stage
"Each actor was perfectly cast in their individual roles and Alacey
in particular seemed to have
somehow imbibed the very essence of 'ole blue eyes' before coming on stage.
His performance was breathtaking - seriously! The tone, the modulation and the rhythm in his
