“Broadway is lucky to be illuminated by the distinctive glow of Melissa Errico.” — The New York Times
“Errico is the real thing – gorgeous to look at, a superb comic actress and singer, and an abundantly confident and authoritative leading lady. ” — In Theater
“Errico makes HIGH SOCIETY worth the ticket price. She’s all you want Tracy Lord to be: beautiful, haughty, soulful, and musical. And when her inebriated Tracy sings “Let’s Misbehave,” Errico displays a giddy exhilaration too rarely seen on-stage.” — USA Today
“In her metamorphosis from haughty porcelain perfection to scarred and warm-blooded life, this glowing young Broadway actress gives HIGH SOCIETY its lyrical heart and insouciant comic soul. Her heart-shaped face can shatter and reassemble itself in a single panic-stricken glance. The mastery of her performance comes in the way she’s able to keep two powerful emotions in play at once, whether in speech or song.” — San Francisco Chronicle
