In Blue (The Tank, 2019)

“Finn Kilgore is radiantly contained as the earnest, searching Marc, and Alyssa Simon outsize in life-performance and heartbreaking in personal solitude as Lasker-Schüler; a lone cellist, Luke Santy, provides counterpoint, with somber classical intonations and spectral, processed effects.” ~Adam McGovern,


New World Sonata (Sound Designer for fiction podcast, released 2018)

“The voice acting is very believable and excellent, the characters are unique and feel real, at that sound design/foley art! My favorite, but it’s all great stuff, and it sounds like a professional production. I could close my eyes and be transported to that New World Sonata universe, and 20 minutes would go by in a flash…” ~dennisp61, Apple Podcasts


Solina (New York International Fringe Festival, Summer 2015)

“…after all is said and done, ‘Solina’ is sure to be remembered as one of the most ambitious and thoughtfully constructed offerings at Fringe 2015. Boasting a hummable soundtrack, solid stagecraft, and optimistic message, Little Did Productions makes work that capitalizes on the pleasures of a theatre geared towards children without making their audience (regardless of age) feel childish.” ~ Sam Silbiger, Theater Is Easy


South Dakota (The Jewel Box Theatre, 2013)

“The stagecraft here is excellent. Luke Santy provides live accompaniment on guitar and also operates the sound board from a corner of the stage; his contributions to the mood and environment are vital.” ~Martin Denton,


A Silly Silverstein Show (New York International Fringe Festival, Summer 2008)

“There is live music that goes along with the show with instruments ranging from cello to plastic pan flute and even a didgeridoo…Luke Santy stands out as the company’s musical director.  He plays all the instruments, sings a song or two, and narrates a shadow puppet piece about a cuttle fish.  He is very impressive and the cuttle fish shadow puppet number is among the best of the show.” ~Richard Hinojosa,
