A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder 




 "Emily Scinto is delightful as Sibella, conveying the lust and craftiness of a young woman looking out for herself, singing with great flourish in "I Don't Know What I'd Do" while expressing unbridled egotism."

...Arthur Dorman, Talkin' Broadway

"Emily Scinto is a scene-and-song-stealing Sibella Hallward, one of Monty’s two love interests."

...Basil Considine, Twin Cities Arts Reader 

"The female foils... Emily Scinto (SIBELLA HALLWARD) show off terrific voices and again major kudos to them--this music is tough. With multiple complex parts, various trios, duets, patter songs, they make saucy and clever character choices and showcase impeccable timing."

...Erin Roberts, Minnesota Playlist

"Emily Scinto steals scenes and hearts as Sibella."

...Jill Schafer, Cherry and Spoon

"Both actresses Emily Scinto (Sibella) and Elizabeth Hawkinson (Phoebe) are lovely in their parts with beautiful singing voices."

...Rob Dunkleberger, The Stages of MN


Smokey Joe's Cafe


"Emily Scinto’s big voice and killer dance moves, perhaps best epitomized in “Teach Me How to Shimmy,” were so impressive, and the show clearly leaned on her talent throughout all the numbers."

...Erin McNeil, Minnesota Playlist


 "Emily Scinto is a vision of the sexy swingin’ ’60s as she shimmies in defiance of all things puritanical."

...John Townsend, Lavender Magazine 

"Emily Scinto’s beautiful voice on everything she sings."

...Pamela Espeland, Minn Post

"Emily Scinto's lovely and plaintive "Falling" and mesmerizing shimmying."

...Jill Schafer, Cherry and Spoon

"The four women hold their own, with Emily Scinto and China Brickey especially standing out in several numbers: Scinto in a provocative "Teach Me How to Shimmy."

...Arthur Dorman, Talkin' Broadway 


"Emily Scinto is a discovery as Norma Cassidy... With her thick accent and moll-ish giggle, Scinto steals every scene she enters, including the one with the memorable “Paris Makes Me Horny.” 

...Rohan Preston, The Star Tribune

"Emily Scinto, who plays the ditzy Norma Cassidy, is a new comer for me but just about steals the show. ...Her commitment to Norma in creating a ditzy, funny and yet strong women was fantastic. Her performance was a high point in the show for me and I'm looking forward to keeping an eye out for her next role."

...Brett Burger, Broadway World

"Aside from Michels, the stand out in the cast is Emily Scinto as Norma Cassidy. Scinto brings a "claw your way to the top" ferocity, mixed with the naivete of a classic "dumb blonde," and even manages to draw laughs from one of those lifeless songs, "Paris Makes Me Horny."

...Arthur Dorman, Talkin' Broadway
