REVIEWS

"Nestlerode as Girl is a delightful, upbeat Czech who won’t take “no” for an answer and plays such an effective, take-charge woman that one might be inclined to follow her anywhere. Nestlerode’s sensitive touch on the piano and in her smooth singing voice work together to make her character irresistible." -Cape Cod Times

REVIEWS

"The dialogue is often funny, especially the endearing, tongue-in-cheek humor of Girl, played by Elizabeth Nestlerode ... Nestlerode gives a clear and effective performance, blending with and buoying [Barry] De Bois' voice, in full control of dynamics and color throughout the musical."

-Broadway World

REVIEWS

"Nestlerode makes the audience fall in love with her character just as quickly as Guy does. She’s quirky, funny, blunt and an exquisite singer (and pianist) whose voice blends beautifully with [Ben] Hope’s, turning “Falling Slowly” into an emotionally captivating experience." -Miami Herald

“Elizabeth Nestlerode not only has a lovely voice and a skill at the piano but she absolutely nails the idiosyncratic persona of Girl, someone with a scarred survivor’s pragmatism, a hilariously blunt straight-forward honesty, a sardonic wit and yet a belief in the romanticism of Guy’s music." - Florida Theatre on Stage

REVIEWS

“Miss Nestlerode breathes life into Girl with a vibrant personality, beautiful voice and elegant piano playing.”

-Broadway World

 

“Elizabeth Nestlerode is lovable and indomitable as Girl. The irresistible force of her will meets the unmovable object of Guy’s defeated dreams, and she wins. Nestlerode’s force of character sings out in her voice as well.”

REVIEWS

"That celesta is played by Petty’s wife, Vi (Elizabeth Nestlerode) and the Crickets’ discovery of Vi’s musical chops is one of the night’s funniest moments." -Central Jersey Stage Review

"Elizabeth Nestlerode puts wit and grit in her comments as a record producers wife, then shows the same moxie on the piano when she joins the band." -NealsPaper.com 

REVIEWS

"Elizabeth Nestlerode’s depiction of Louise’s growth, from tiny-voiced shy bird (“Little Lamb”) to glamorous stripper extraordinaire in an all-stops-out staging of “Let Me Entertain You,” is a small marvel."

-Blog Critics

"It is Elizabeth Nestlerode’s performance of the timid Louise that stands out. Her transition from a pathetic young girl to a tantalizing seductress is remarkable.."

-Brooklyn Daily

"Elizabeth Nestlerode was extraordinary bringing to life Louise, the shy, neglected sister who blossomed into Gypsy Rose Lee"
