Chicago P.D.

Year For Silk

21 and a Wakeup

With Ari Adelstein

Wait Until Dark

 

"[Saint Michael's Playhouse] production, skillfully directed by Sarah Carleton, was truly a taut thriller — not without its moments of humor — at Wednesday’s opening night performance. The cast was excellent...
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

 

 

 

Or,

 

"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

TALLEY'S FOLLY

 

“Abby Lee as Sally Talley [is] excellent.  Miss Lee gradually reveals the indecision and underlying humor of Sally.  It’s a believable and multi-faceted performance.” — Connie Meng, NCPR

“Abby Lee shows how torn Sally feels by the deep, inner conflict she conceals for most of the play. Lee gives her character the proud, graceful carriage of a well-heeled Southern woman, animated by Sally’s feisty intelligence and wit. But she also shows how it saps Sally’s physical energy to keep pretending she wants Matt to go away. Lee manifests this strain on her face and in her eyes, which dull as Sally’s urge to fight wanes.” — Elisabeth Crean, Seven Days

“. . .sensitive and quietly stellar performances. Abby Lee proved truly sympathetic as the misfit Sally Talley. . . in the able hands of Wilson and these two actors, it becomes entrancing.” — Jim Lowe, Times Argus

Fox On The Fairway

"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

Dames at Sea

“in a very funny performance by Abby Lee... alone is worth the price of a ticket.  Her determined Act I exit and re-entrance is hilarious.” — Connie Meng, NCPR

 

Car Talk

“... it is Lee’s solid performance as the lovely Zoe, who is most obviously comfortable in her own skin that anchors and connects the other characters.” — Carol King, Daily Gazette

“Abby Lee … is very effective as the crusty, taxidermist (she has a stuffed wolf to give to Rosalie as a wedding present.) with a tough-as nails- attitude which doesn't really disguise the softy she really is. It is a nicely modulated performance.” — Charles Kondek, Register-Star
