Wallis & Edward Quotes


"Finally was able to read Wallis & Edward over the weekend.  I really believe that you are on to something here.  I was really happy to see that your lyrics are true theater lyrics I didn’t catch a false rhyme!  I can’t wait to see a reading of the piece.  Keep me posted."

Michael Kerker / Director of Musical Theatre / ASCAP



"I read your play Wallis & Edward: The Love Story of the Twentieth Century? with both professional interest and personal enjoyment.  Loved reading it.  It is a scrupulously researched historical drama.  Your manuscript teems with moments of what would become stunning history.  And, as a reader, I am enriched by this dramatized history lesson.  I just listened to one of the songs composed by Shelly Markham, Erv, and found it lovely."

Ervin Drake / Song Writer
of It Was a Very Good Year and Good Morning Heartache


"I very much enjoyed reading "Wallis and Edward, the Love Story of the Twentieth Century?"....even though the music was not yet finished, I imagined music to the lyrics that were written. I also enjoyed how vacuous these characters were. This will be a very entertaining musical play."

William R. T. Smith, President of the Wagner Society of America
