“Rachel Carson shook the world of journalism and changed the shape of environmental politics. There are few if any comparable figures in either field. Kaiulani Lee’s performance gave me the opportunity to feel I had met this remarkable woman and experienced the quiet courage of Rachel Carson.” Peter Dykstra, CNN

“You cannot watch Kaiulani Lee without reflecting on universal themes – life, death, and the power of place, courage in growing old and in speaking truth. You cannot walk away unmoved,” Bill Moyers, PBS

“… what Lee achieves in barely an hour is something rare and almost spiritual. She merges herself with Carson’s spirit. Chin jutting forward, she leans toward us, reminiscing, lecturing, pleading. Fire comes into her eyes … I felt flashes of transcendence, the stage disappearing into a living authentic presence.” Christopher Rawson, Drama Critic, Pittsburg Post Gazette
