Abby Lee is Lady Macbeth:
"Abby Lee takes on one of Shakespeare’s most daunting characters and [is successful] in doing so. She mounts a performance that you can’t help but watch with your eyes wide open." -Matthew Waterman, Herald Times
Abby Lee is Henrick Ibsen's HEDDA GABLER
"Abby Lee tackles the title role, known as one of the most daunting female roles in the canon of modern drama. Lee’s portrayal of Hedda brings out the character’s maniacal side, but not so much as to a fault. Lee’s performance is measured, gripping and gratifyingly atypical". -Matthew Waterman, Herald Times
Abby is co-starring in the short film YEAR FOR SILK, written and directed by James Sharpe.

The review's are in for WAIT UNTIL DARK!
"Abby Lee gave a fully dimensional performance as Susan, mixing elements of a loving but insecure wife, a strong woman trying to prove herself, and, of course, a petrified victim". - Jim Lowe, Times Argus

Abby just returned from Saint Michael's Playhouse to rave reviews as Elizabeth in YOUNG FRANKESTEIN and Pamela in THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY.
FOX: "Still, the joy Wednesday was found in two wonderful — sometimes even droll — comic performances. Abby Lee’s rich comic abilities made Pamela, Bingham’s illicit lover, easily the most fascinating and funniest character on stage". - Jim Lowe, Vermont Today
FRANKENSTEIN: "Kathryn Markey's He Vas My Boyfriend and Abby Lee's Please Don't Touch Me numbers were standouts of the showstopper variety." -Rick Busciglio, Examiner.com

Balls. . . . The Musical? made its Off-Broadway Debut to critical success! This is what Michael Mraz had to say about Abby's choreography in NYTHEATRE.COM:
"the true star of the show is the choreography and the re-imagined musical numbers. The choreography is perfectly styled; it hits all of the notes of typical Broadway dance-call style choreography, while never being too graceful. It always looks like 5 “dudes” dancing well, which amps up the humor of the sequences."
Abby is playing Prudie in upcoming Pump Boys & Dinettes at The Laurie Beechman Theatre! Also starring Julie Foldesi, Erik Hayden, Scott Pearson, Justin Hosek and Devon Goffman!

Abby is starring in a new short film called SPEXY! In a nod to film noir, Abby plays a serial killer who, by kismet, falls in love with another serial killer and together they do what they do best; it's as dark a comedy can get.
Abby also just closed the role of Nell Gwyn and Maria in a production of OR, by Liz Duffy Adams at Stageworks in Hudson, NY. Performances were June 16 - July 4.
"Lee, with her mischievous smile and saucy, naughty, twinkling eyes is delightful. It is difficult not to be taken in by her performance... She is at one and the same time engagingly girlish and innocently boyish... [She gives] the work considerable lightheaded vitality as well as honest depth."
Charles Kondek, Hudson-Catskill Newspaper
"Lee’s Gwynne, cross-dressed to look like a boy, is charming. Her freedom of movement and gesture is a delight, making Gwynne very much a living person and not a caricature. As Maria, she is heavy-duty comedy..."
J. Peter Burgman, Berkshire Bright Focus
