“Wonderfully directed by Bay Street’s Artistic Director Scott Schwartz, the extraordinary cast is headed up by Samantha Massell portraying Rosalind. Indeed, Ms. Massell delivers Rosalind’s tough, straightforward demeanor flawlessly. We follow Rosalind as she encounters misogyny, antisemitism and uses these as her fuel to figure out what life is. Rosalind is certainly a force to be reckoned with… And so, the Bay Street Theatre certainly has another hit on their hands with this stellar production of Double Helix.” – BroadwayWorld
“It’s rare that East End audiences have the opportunity to witness the birth of a musical, and Bay Street’s ability to bring this world premiere to life under the steady hand of the theater’s artistic director, Scott Schwartz, who directs the show and has shepherded the project since its inception, makes it a production not to be missed…” – 27East
“Slightly further afield, Double Helix—a new musical by Madeline Myers, premiering at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor—centers on Rosalind Franklin, the Jewish, London-born chemist and X-ray crystallographer whose work was central to identifying the molecular structure of DNA in the 1950s.” – 14 Highlights from the Current Broadway Season – and Beyond (Vogue)
