"Thank you for all your commitment and work on The Dead Ones. You have been the perfect publicist for me. Doing the show in Sydney has been a very important part of my journey with this work and I know that everyone who came to the show has experienced some of what I wanted to portray. The reviewers also understood what I was doing - and that means a huge amount."
- Margie Fischer, Vitalstatistix
"Geoff has had a large role in the success of my shows in Sydney. For an independent artist, it's important to have someone in your corner who understands each production individually, and he does. Geoff increased word-of-mouth and always brought in the right reviewers. He knows Australian media, the theatre and its audiences and he has proved to be an invaluable asset. He's also a swell guy!
- Tommy Bradson, independent artist
"I want to give Geoff Sirmai a pat on the back. Sure, he can represent all publicists for the sake of the argument, but Geoff works primarily in the independent theatre world, which is a much tougher slog as far as getting press exposure and reviews is concerned. Whilst it takes a talented person to ensure a major commercial musical is well exposed, it requires someone even more talented to push a small show with very little budget. Geoff is a talented and bubbly guy who loves this industry and throws so much into it that he deserves something back. Good on you Geoff." - Troy Dodds, managing editor AussieTheatre.com
