"The most impressive performance comes from Justin Mortelliti. He embraces Dylan Klebold, a confirmed killer, and does not judge him. He made me sympathize with... America's troubled youth. Mortelliti is a natural and took me with him."
-New York Times Theater 'The Columbine Project'
"Mortelliti is a born rock belter with a nice-guy countenance"
-Las Vegas Review Journal
"He is relentless and commanding. My advice, don't take your eyes off of him, not that you ever could. He lights up the stage like a Roman candle"
-The Hollywood 360
