CRITICAL ACCLAIM

“Brittingham’s best singing came during the two love duets as she combined a sense of tenderness with firmness. Eileen might be more of a damsel-in-distress at times, but Brittingham was adamant in imbuing her with a strength and resistance.”

"Brittingham, a VHRP regular, had her best role with the company yet, and delivered that timeless number with pure tone and sensitivity, as she did her second act ballad, “The Lonely Nest.”...Furthermore, she demonstrated her considerable comic chops in her jaunty ditty “In Hennequeville,""

as Suor Genovieffa in Suor Angelica

“As Laurie, soprano Joanie Brittingham was the standout in a generally solid cast. She has an effortlessly sweet warble, with a free, easy tone…Her acting was what really set her apart: She fully embodied her character, making the most out of what is a fairly contained emotional arc, and even showing a glimpse of maturation at the end. She has a captivating stage presence, possessed of the sort of innocent kindness that makes her instantly sympathetic and familiar, so that the audience feels completely comfortable with her from the moment she walks on.”

“In Joanie Brittingham, the company had a Laurie ideal in looks, manner, and sound for this classic lyric soprano role…Brittingham wisely made it clear that for Laurie it’s leaving that is most important—not her relationship with the intinerant Martin.”

"Equally good is Brittingham as Clara, who balances the character's childlike innocence and directness with a full-bodied voice in songs that allow the character to express what is going on in a mind and heart even her mother can't fully fathom.
