"Stocking is thoroughly delightful" - Broadway World (Archduke)

"It is Stocking’s hilariously bumbling, deliciously naïve, achingly vulnerable Gavrillo who gives Archduke its heart and soul" - StageSceneLA (Archduke)

"Sympathetically played by Stephen Stocking" - LA Times (Archduke)

"A scared and intense young man, perfectly portrayed by Stephen Stocking" - Times Square Chronicle (Describe the Night)
