"In addition, probably one of the best actors on stage was Kyle Schliefer as Jigger Craggin, whose small scene with Carrie in Act II contained some of the best acting moments in the entire show. In addition to being the only person whose accent added to his character, he played an evil character sympathetically and without judgment, an incredibly difficult task" -Patty Kavs
