Meteor Shower:

“As Laura, Gray is seductive, larcenous and skillful at throwing shade. ... Meyer and Gray have a very funny scene on a couch involving celery. All of the actors have impeccable comic timing.” - Maggie Duffy, Tampa Bay Times

"Finally Laura played by Amy E. Gray was the bad girl everyone wanted and no one could have. She played bad in all the right manners of the word, and I was gripped to her every nuance." - Drew Eberhard, Broadwayworld.com

 

Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2018 remount):

"True to the script, Gray as Yitzhak shines as a very fine singer and also plays Hedwig’s verbally abused spouse with grace." - Andrew Meachum, Tampa Bay Times

District Merchants:

"Amy Elizabeth Gray is a poised Jessica, and her affair with her abductor, Finneus Randall, a Catholic Irishman played with rambunctious energy by Sean Michael Cummings, is a hoot." - Juliette Wittman, Denver Westword

"Jessica, Shylock’s daughter, is an arresting Amy Elizabeth Gray." - David Marlowe, Marlowe's Musings

"... as Gray deftly navigates Jessica's two sides—obedient daughter and cultural renegade;" - Bob Bows, Colorado Drama

"Both our leading ladies, Candice Joice (Portia), and Amy Elizabeth Gray (Jessica) portray some very heart-felt, raw, and complicated emotional dilemmas with grace and upmost sincerity." - Devon James, Denver Theater Perspectives

The Threepenny Opera:

"Amy E. Gray as Jenny Diver is commanding and in good voice. (Her “Pirate Jenny” is one of the best songs in the show.)" - Mark Leib, Creative Loafing 

"Both Harrison and Meleah deliver terrific vocals; as do Amy Gray as ("Pirate") Jenny..." - Andrew Meachum, Tampa Bay Times

Cloud 9:

"Gray is transformed into Victoria, Edward’s younger sister, who was just an inanimate rag doll in the Africa setting (told you it was odd). The most riveting moment involves her, Jenkins’ Edward and Stevenson’s Lin drunkenly holding a séance to invoke the goddess Isis. It’s a tender scene, and one of the few in Cloud 9 that actually shows us what else is inside these people." - Bill DeYoung, Creative Loafing

 

 

The Nance:
"The amazing women of the cast are jacks of all trades. Patty Ionoff, Emily Tuckman, and Amy Gray portray women simply trying to make a dollar in the 1930s while supporting their friend Chauncey. This production is top notch. Between wonderful directing, perfect lighting and spot on costumes, the entire show is a work of art." - Avery Anderson, Met Media

Silence! The Musical:

"Amy Gray is astonishing as Clarice Starling, right down to her perfectly sustained over-exaggeration of Jodie Foster's speech impediment as Clarice (as displayed in the song "This Ish It"). Gray sings marvelously and fits the role perfectly." - Peter Nason, BroadwayWorld.com

 

"Amy E. Gray is spot-on as Starling, playing up the agent’s lisp to full effect, particularly in her opening song, “Thish Ish It.”" - John Allman, Tampa Trib

 

"As Clarice Starling, Amy Gray is perhaps the show's funniest performance. As the unsmiling "straight man" (or straight woman, in this case), she is the butt of blatant sexual harassment by everyone from FBI colleagues to prisoners, discredited by peers and tormented by Lecter, the only one who seems to understand her — and somehow, that's all funny. She also does a mean Jodie Foster impersonation throughout." - Andrew Meacham, Tampa Bay Times

 

"Amy E. Gray, who gave a superb performance as the trans male Itzhak in Jobsite's Hedwig and the Inch, is adorably deadpan as Clarice Starling. Her shpeechimpediment and West Virginia accent riffs on Jodie Foster's Starling with a dash of Reba McIntyre." - Julie Garisto, Creative Loafing

 

 

Return to the Forbidden Planet:

"If you’ve been a theatergoer in the Bay area over the last 10 years or so, you’ve seen Jonathan Harrison, Heather Krueger, Amy E. Gray and the other actors in this confection on many occasions. But in Planet, these familiar performers are at the top of their game, letting loose, hamming it up, putting a Brechtian spin on every line of dialogue and song, celebrating in their exuberance not only the silly musical they’re in but also the fact of their own professionalism." - Mark Leib, Creative Loafing

 

"The cast members are engaging and funny with powerhouse vocals. Gray in particular does a deft job delivering the dialogue in a way that makes sense." - Stephanie Hayes, Tampa Bay Times

 

"Gray rocks on “Teenager in Love” and a “Robotman” duet with Giangrande-Holcom." - Walt Belcher, Tampa Trib

 

 

Hedwig & the Angry Inch:

"Despite being secondary roles, the band members of the Angry Inch, played by Jonathan Cho, Jana Doan, Woody Bond and the angelic-voiced Amy Gray (also Yitzhak), provided the live backbone to seamlessly execute the story on stage." - Stephanie Bolling, Tampa Bay Times

 

 

Hay Fever:

​"The nine-person cast ... delivers stylish caricatures that make for a thoroughly entertaining evening." - Marty Clear, Tampa Bay Times

​Gorey Stories:

​"The show sounds just as good as it looks. Gray, for example, showcases her lovely operatic voice in 'The Blue Aspic.'" - Kathy Greenberg, Tampa Trib

"The entire cast of Jobsite regulars — besides Stevenson there's Michael C. McGreevey, Amy Gray, Summer Bohnenkamp-Jenkins, Jason Evans and Spencer Meyers, directed by David M. Jenkins — are a hoot to watch, individually and together." - Marty Clear, Tampa Bay Times

"The performances are just as impressive. Amy E. Gray lends her immense vocal talents to “The Blue Aspic,” a darkly comic tale of an opera singer done in by unrequited love." - Julie Garisto, Creative Loafing
 

Boeing-Boeing:
"Feisty and funny as a stereotype, she used the dated material to her advantage. She worked Gretchen with a wink to the audience, as though encouraging us to accept this predictable setup. Gray, in fact, made a farce of the farce." - Kathy Greenberg, Tampa Trib

The 39 Steps:
"There is excellent chemistry between Lunsford and Amy E. Gray, who gives a witty performance in multiple roles as the women with whom Hannay gets involved, including a mysterious femme fatale in black and a Scottish country girl. Gray has exactly the right air of sexy, amused detachment as Pamela, the classic Hitchcock blond, who is handcuffed to the hero when they flee across the moors." - John Fleming, Tampa Bay Times


"Gray also conveyed old Hollywood charm and mystique, especially in her turn as Annabella." - Kathy Greenberg, Tampa Tribune

 

The Taming of the Shrew:
"...every member of the nine-person cast (mostly Jobsite regulars) has truly great moments, and the physical comedy is spot-on throughout. (Katrina) Stevenson, Amy E. Gray (in several smaller roles) and Michael C. McGreevey as Baptista also do exceptional work." - Marty Clear, St. Pete Times

 

Pericles, a new rock musical:
"Pericles is a fitting cap to Jobsite Theater's tenth season, a noisy, funny, unpredictable rock musical featuring the impressive guitar work of Joe Popp and the splendid performances of seven inspired actors... As Cleo's wife Dion, Amy E. Gray is one of the crudest, most uncultured hotties in New Yawk..." -Mark E. Leib, Creative Loafing


""Pericles: The New Rock Musical" is a raucous force of nature, so naturally Jobsite Theater produced it.The acting is good (Corley and Amy E. Gray as Dion, et al, are especially deft)." -Kathy Greenberg, Tampa Tribune


"Be ready to get blown away by Jobsite’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Pericles...Surprise standout is  Amy E. Gray, who plays several parts, including Talia’s friend and a nun.  She belts out a number during Perry’s surrealistic dream sequence in a monastery that has the audience rocking." -Sally Bosco, Tampa Bay Arts Network

 

Embedded:
"...the play is harsh, unrelenting, at times grotesque and exceedingly refreshing.  In a more perfect universe, every city would have a theater troupe that performed plays like Embedded every time there is a national crisis ... the war is not over yet. Not being able to give us closure, Robbins finishes more or less as he started, with tender communications from soldiers to their families. That's the reality: humans with hearts, thinking of their loved ones. The 11-member cast, most of whom play multiple roles, is consistently top-notch... There's not a wrong note in the whole cast, which works like a carefully constructed but noisy truth machine ... If you don't believe that the live theater can be a potent political instrument, see this play and change your mind." -Mark E. Leib, Creative Loafing


"...this was, by far, Jobsite's best production... Co-directors Jenkins and Paonessa culled some of the best actors in the Tampa Bay area for this production ... Embedded is a creative, original and intelligent play that lingers long after the curtain goes down." -Kathy Greenberg, Tampa Tribune


"... the script and the production both fare best during the very human vignettes that punctuate the bombast.  A touching opening scene has soldiers saying goodbye to their loved ones as they go off to war." -Marty Clear, St. Pete Times
 


A Dream Play:
"...they manage to deliver several ingratiating performances.  ...a woman (Amy E. Gray) who spends much of the play on her hands and knees trying to paste the world together. ...Amy E. Gray and Soolaf Rasheid are fine in smaller roles." -Mark E. Leib, Creative Loafing

"...the cast in Jobsite Theater's production does a fine job unearthing those rare treasures of wisdom." -Kathy Greenberg, Tampa Tribune


"...the cast expertly treads the borderline between the play's surreal form and its essential humanity." -Marty Clear, St. Pete Times

 

A Tale of Two Cities:
"‘A TALE OF TWO CITIES’ is probably one of the most exciting things that audiences are ever going to see in Sarasota. And those audiences have been up on their feet immediately after the show every night. The musical is destined for Broadway." -JAY HANDELMAN, SNN News 6


"'A TALE OF TWO CITIES' is a great experience. The new musical has a terrific cast, splendidly high production values and the pleasure of seeing a beloved classic come to life onstage. James Barbour is a powerfully charismatic presence. The staging is sumptuous. The scenic design is superb. The lighting is vivid. The costumes are lush. Author, Jill Santoriello, has done a skillful job." -JOHN FLEMING, St. Petersburg Times


"‘A TALE OF TWO CITIES’ is simply the best of times. It is wonderfully satisfying -- visually, musically, histrionically and narratively. It is also mightily pleasing. Tony Walton's grand sets are spectacularly eloquent. David Zinn's scores of costumes are marvelously conceived. Richard Pilbrow's expressionistic lighting creates a whole world of indignant fantasy. Michael Donald Edwards' direction is unthinkably excellent. The cast is exceptionally talented. Best of all is James Barbour. Jessica Rush has a marvelous instrument. Natalie Toro stuns us with her vocal quality. The songs have that epic quality that multimillion-dollar blockbusters require. They build to their ovations with real confidence. Santoriello's book is near perfect. I’ve seldom seen better work at the Asolo Theatre or anywhere else. Should you see ‘A TALE OF TWO CITIES?’ Absolutely ! It is a stunner. " -MARK E. LEIB, Creative Loafing, Sarasota

 

"‘A TALE OF TWO CITIES’ has taken its first step toward Broadway. You can catch this epic musical drama at the Asolo Theatre if you’re willing to beg, steal and borrow. The smash hit is already completely sold out. I’d never read the novel but found myself wrapped up in the redemptive story of Sydney Carton and the heartbreaking love triangle between Carton, Lucie Manette and Charles Darnay. This Broadway-bound musical is on the right path, thanks especially to a handful of stirring Jill Santoriello songs, Michael Donald Edward’s brisk staging, Tony Walton’s ingenious scenic design and a strong company led by James Barbour, pouring his soul into a towering performance as Carton. He could get himself a Tony Award if he plays his cards right." -PAUL WONTOREK, Broadway.com

 


Music of the Knight: the songs of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Friends:
"With no playbill, ... That's too bad, because there was talent worth knowing about in numbers like the great aria As If We Never Said Goodbye from Sunset Boulevard ..."  -John Fleming, St. Petersburg Times

 

Grace:
"As the narrator who turns into Libby's lover Joni, Amy Gray is delightfully spunky and gregarious..." - Mark Leib, Creative Loafing, Tampa

 

The Shape of Things:
"...Gray as Jenny is credibly shy, a bit of a wallflower; we can't help but like her and wish her well (which means, no Phillip)." - Mark Leib, Creative Loafing, Tampa

"...Amy Gray as Jenny... deliver believable and completely rounded characters" - Joanne Milani, Tampa Tribune

 

The Fantasticks:
"Amy Gray, the only female cast member, is outstanding...Not only does she carry herself like a dancer, but she also has a terrific singing voice..." - Sylvia Devey

 

Fiddler on the Roof:
"As their daughters, Meggin C. Stailey (Tzeitel), Caroline Brasfield (Hodel), and  Amy E. Gray (Chava) are charming and separate.  You never confuse them.  Each gets her moment to shine, and takes full advantage." - Peter Smith, St. Petersburg Times

 

The Boy Friend:
"Amy Gray portraying the Julie Andrews role of Polly has a beautiful and lyrical voice.  She shines in her duet... also sings lovely harmonies..." - Page Goodman, Entertainment Extra

 

Personal notes from Joanne Milani, former Tampa Tribune critic, regarding The King & I:
"There were two performances which stood out during the show: yours and Lady Thiang.  The two of you are as good as any I've seen in Broadway touring productions. Congrats.  You delivered your songs with feeling and emotion, which means everything.  Best, Joanne"
