First review out about CLASS in NJ Star Ledger...with great things said about Thaao Penghlis' performance such as quoted below:
"And Thaao Penghlis excels as Elliot. He's handsome and charismatic, with one of the 12 best smiles you'll ever see. In "Sunset Boulevard," Norma Desmond says, "Great stars have great pride." The way Penghlis plays Elliot reminds us that non-stars can have it, too. When he glances out the window and sees the paparazzi and fans lusting for Sarah, the look he gives contains a good deal of scorn -- but substantially more envy."
