“Kimberly Hessler is absolutely captivating as Eliza. Her Cockney elocution at the outset is perfect, and she seamlessly proceeds through her transformation from squashed cabbage leaf to duchess with nuanced brilliance. In addition to her magnificent, shimmering soprano, Hessler is also a wonderful actress, evoking the spirit of Julie Andrews, the original Eliza. Insightful and often breathtaking, Hessler delivers with an extraordinary performance.”
"Kimberly Hessler is probably the best Cosette this reviewer has ever encountered. I’ve always found the role vapid and uninteresting but Hessler brings a deeper poignancy to the role as well as a lilting soprano"
"Kimberly Hessler shows-off a beautiful voice, deep sensitivity and determination few actresses her age possess. Hessler almost steals the show with a portrayal of such maturity and nuance that this critic hopes to see her again on the stages of North Hollywood and Los Angeles very soon."
