VARIOUS REVIEW QUOTES
~~As Maria in WEST SIDE STORY~~
|The Augusta Chronicle, by Jim Garvey
|For what a Maria to sing about! Christianne Tisdale is a vividly fresh, unaffected Maria, full of horseplay on I Feel Pretty, growing to tragic dimensions in the wrenching finale. Her voice is clear, sweet and self-assured. Together, Porretta and Tisdale are terrific. The sparks between them, the shy touches, the kisses, the tenderness and passion all ring absolutely true.
|~~As Nellie Forbush in SOUTH PACIFIC~~
|Eagle / Times, by Susan Pena
|�the planter reveals his children by his deceased Polynesian wife. Tisdale�s reaction is one of physical, gut-level revulsion, and is as disturbing as an act of violence. Her Nellie, a skinny kid from Arkansas is a product of everything that is rotten in America�s dark underbelly. But that reaction permeates the second act and gives the final scene of domestic tranquility a greater sense of triumph than the military�s impending victory over the Japanese.
Tisdale is a wonderful Nellie; she is as natural and full of fun as your favorite college roommate, and she sings beautifully.
|~~As Marion in THE MUSIC MAN~~
|Oklahoma Gazette, by Michelle De Long
|...with a delightful co-star in Christianne Tisdale. Tisdale makes Marion the Librarian all her own, never cluttering up her performance with old-maid stereotypes. Her Marion is all flesh and bone, completely real, down-to-earth, smart and a little sassy.
Tisdale voice is powerful, and her skill for phrasing is keen. She infuses what are often rather slow musical ballads such as �My White Knight� and �Goodnight My Someone� with new gumption.
|The Journal Record
|�a role beautifully portrayed by Christianne Tisdale, she of the lovely figure, pretty face, superior voice and acting ability.
|~~As Woman #1 in DOCTOR DOCTOR!~~
|The Abingdon Press, by Mary Ann Slaughter
|I have saved the best for last. Christianne Tisdale as Woman #1 was riveting. Her vocal range seemed boundless. The facial expressions she used, the way she moved�and sometimes crawled�was pure entertainment. She was wonderfully funny in all the musical numbers. One favorite, however, was more serious. She presented the theme of someone faced with a terminal diagnosis with just the right touch. We did not pity the woman, but were made to think about what she was saying.
A delicate balance well done.
|~~As Cleo in THE MOST HAPPY FELLA~~
|Cleveland Jewish News, by Fran Heller
|...where Cleo, perky Christianne Tisdale, bemoans waitressing. In the rib-tickling number, �Ooh! My Feet!� Tisdale�s comic rendition of her aching arches is a delightful warm-up for this bundle of talent�s other show-stopping antics�Bell and Tisdale�s crowd-pleasing number �Big D� is dynamite.
