Scheduled to be shooting a couple of days this week.
After being fit for a set of false teeth… I am pretty stoked about this one.  This new series for MTV is based on a book by R.L. Stine, and stars Victoria Justice… pictures soon!

Wrapped on “It Had to Be You”

Recently wrapped on the feature film, It Had to Be You, starring Cristin Milioti (How I Met Your Mother, The Wolf of Wallstreet).  I was the “Charlotte” to Cristin’s “Carrie”, also a yoga instructor and new mom.

And yes… that is a picture of what you think it is.

“Erica Sweany was charming throughout, long-limbed and graceful, with a lovely singing voice. In the Arvada Center production, she really got to strut her stuff in a gorgeous Rogers-and-Astaire-style duet with Jim Poulos called “A Tough Act to Follow,” a number that provided such pure, dizzy pleasure, you wanted it never to stop.”

Divinely Funny

"...flanked by two divinely funny showgirls (Leslie Donna Flesner, Erica Sweany) in pink bugle beads and plumage."

-Hollywood Reporter

"two gorgeous Showgirl Barbies (Leslie Donna Flesner and Erica Sweany)"


Best Actress in a Musical 2013

"Niki is the ingenue of Curtains... In the role, Erica Sweany was charming throughout, long-limbed and graceful, with a lovely singing voice... she really got to strut her stuff in a gorgeous Rogers-and-Astaire-style duet with Jim Poulos... that provided such pure, dizzy pleasure, you wanted it never to stop."
-BEST OF 2013, Denver Westword

Sweet and stunning

"… romantic interest, Niki Harris (played by the sweet and stunning Erica Sweany) just added to the cutesy and endearing love story and the audience loved it! Even for her sweet innocence, she had quite a set of pipes on her”

-Michael Mulhern for BroadwayWorld.com

Gorgeously sung and danced

"Best of all, there's a gorgeous Rogers and Astaire-style duet, 'A Tough Act to Follow,' which is equally gorgeously sung and danced by the lovely and graceful Erica Sweany as Niki..."

-Juliet Wittman, Denver Westword

Provocative and Entertaining

"My favorite performance was 'Macavity' providing a bluesy, burlesque interpretation... The duet between Erica Sweany as Demeter and Lauren Sprague as Bombalurina was provocative and entertaining."

-Robin Shaye for PMPnetwork.com

Capture(d) saccharine sweet giddiness wonderfully

"Erica Sweany is sweet and naïve as Niki, the ingénue, just overly innocent enough to be suspicious. Poulos and Sweany capture saccharine sweet giddiness wonderfully."

-Craig Williamson, North Denver Tribune

Erica Sweany dazzles

"Erica Sweany dazzles as Roxie Hart... She moves seamlessly from heartless killer to pitiful victim to disillusioned former celebrity. Sweany possesses a powerful singing voice and effortless dancing ability that is expertly showcased in her solo number, 'Roxie'."

-Denise Ward, New York Times Regional Media Group


"As Kim, the grown up daughter of Magnolia and Gaylord, Erica Sweany is brilliant performing a strikingly original Charleston in the second act with male dancers at her side."

-Sally Applegate, North Shore Sunday GateHouse News Service


"...taken with Cranshaw’s understudy, Niki Harris (a charming Erica Sweany)..."

-Lisa Kennedy, The Denver Post

Beautiful and sexy

"Erica Sweany is beautiful and sexy, especially in 'Teach Me How To Shimmy'"

-John Lariviere, Talkin Broadway Regional News

To the hilt

"In the Little Theatre on the Square's razzle-dazzle production, Roxie is played to the hilt by Erica Sweany"

-James L. Seay, The Pamplet Press
