"LEGALIZE HER INSTEAD OF POT"
" 'My Paris' has wonderfully imaginative flourishes... The most captivating is a sprite-like character named The Green Fairy (an alluring Erica Sweany) who, dressed in olive chiffon, seductively floats onstage (gracefully staged by Kathleen Marshall), tempting Lautrec to lose himself in absinthe. Legalize her instead of pot, for God’s sake!"
-New Haven Register
"The other young woman in his life in Montmartre is the Green Fairy who represents absinthe. She is played by Erica Sweany (who also portrays Jane Avril). Sweany is seductive, mysterious and exceptionally graceful."
-Sherry Shameer Cohen
"The Can-Can scene is particularly memorable, as is the torturingly gorgeous dance of the Green Fairy."
"... Montmartre’s intoxicating brew of vibrancy, sex, and especially the lure of absinthe, which is nicely embodied by a secuctive Green Fairy (Erica Sweany)."
"Cody Williams... and Erica Sweany (as the vampy Judy Haynes) make a pitch perfect couple, singing and dancing their way through assorted shenanigans... The cast is high energy, delivering several unforgettable song and dance production numbers. The best of these is the second act opener, I Love a Piano. It’s a full on singing and tap dancing spectacular... I Love a Piano was interrupted twice with spontaneous applause, and got an extended ovation when it was over. "
"... the performance of “Sisters” by Judy (Erica Sweany) and Betty (Lauren Shealy) makes you think the two had actually grown up together and had sang this song their entire lives. Their voices blend so well and left the audience captivated... the second Act opening number “I Love A Piano” will bring you to your feet as the Broadway style tap dancing was fascinating. Cody William and Erica Sweany mastered the moves and along with the supporting cast of dancers made this a real high-note of the musical."
"...flanked by two divinely funny showgirls (Leslie Donna Flesner, Erica Sweany) in pink bugle beads and plumage."
"two gorgeous Showgirl Barbies (Leslie Donna Flesner and Erica Sweany)"
VOTED BEST DRESSED
BEST ACTRESS AWARD
"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."
"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”
"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..."
"SWEET AND NAIVE"
"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."
"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."
"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'."
"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."
"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"
