Broadway World Review - Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - 2021

"Joseph, here played by Shawn Mathews, who triple-threats his way through singing, dancing, and guitar. This Joseph is a force to be reckoned with - no wonder his siblings are threatened." - BWW

Broadway World Review - Disney's The Little Mermaid

Emilie Leyes and Shawn Matthews take the stage as Ariel and Prince Eric. Leyes and Matthews have great voices for their roles. Their interactions with one another are adorable, particularly in "Kiss the Girl" and "One Step Closer". Leyes has perfected the hopeful, naïve, dreamy expressions of Ariel, and Matthews has great energy in his role as Prince Eric-just right for a young prince yearning for a life at sea." BWW
