​​“…(a luminous Ellen Zolezzi)… Zolezzi dazzles us in “There’s Nothing I Won’t Do For You,” and continues to do so throughout with a variety of colorful denizens in Cagney’s life. She creates such a personable character in Willie Cagney, a strong woman who can hold her own against her husband, but is also faithfully supportive.”  

~Robert Jones /Centre On The Aisle

“...Ellen Zolezzi is wonderful as the love of Cagney’s life, Willie.  Ms. Zolezzi’s singing and dancing is most captivating...”

~Darryl Reilly TheatreScene.net 

​"Ellen Zolezzi as Willie, Cagney's wife, is warm, loving and one tough nut who is endearing and adorable to watch."
​~Matt Dsilva / West 42nd Magazine
