NEohioPAL Testimonials

“In…towns like Chicago, Seattle, & D.C., the dailies and the alternative weeklies make an effort to cover the small fry, with multiple stringers writing capsule reviews to ensure openings are highlighted and companies get coverage. Not here: our start-ups wither in a virtual media blackout.  If it weren’t for Fred Sternfeld’s now-indispensable NEOPAL listserv, most of us wouldn’t even know they’d happened.”  — Linda Eisenstein, ANGLE MAGAZINE

“If Fred Sternfeld were known only for the shows he directs, his impact here would still be considerable. In recent years, he has expertly helmed classics, obscure gems, and musicals on virtually every stage in town. But since 1998, when he founded the Northeast Ohio Performing Arts List (NEohioPAL) – Sternfeld has been bringing together the region’s arts intelligentsia as only chardonnay and cheese previously could.”  –Christine Howey, CLEVELAND SCENE
