“As Anita, Monica Brown is stellar.  She’s fiery, authentic, talented and an acting/dancing/singing phenom.  She leads the Shark Girls in the song ‘America’ and Brown just makes it all hers.  I’ll be singing ‘America’ in my head for the rest of the summer.  And when she sings ‘A Boy Like That,’ the warning in Brown’s voice is clear.  There’s a scene toward the end of Act II when Anita is terrorized by The Jets, and Brown gives an award-winning performance in that scene.  Audiences will see a woman try to be strong while simultaneously fearing for what is being done to her.  It’s one of the darkest scenes in the entire musical, and Brown just handles it perfectly.”

“Brown and Allston create a chemistry that is both intoxicating and toxic as the two fall in, out and in love again through the show.”

        -Paul Batterson, Broadway World Columbus – RENT

 

“Monica Brown’s ‘Mimi’ as a dancer is astonishing, a physical performance that embodies the soul trapped by her compulsions.”

        -Richard Sanford, Columbus Underground – RENT

 

“Monica Brown is hilarious as Kim’s fellow Conrad Birdie fan club member, Ursula Merkel.”

“That makes for some delightful performances, including…Brown’s as an alternately wry and feral Little Red…”

“He (Matthew Janisse) and Brown perfectly sing ‘Now I Have Everything’ together, and it’s a beautiful union of two actors who embody their roles well.”

“As Tevye’s oldest daughters, Tzeitel (Rachel Eskenazi-Gold), Hodel (Monica Brown) and Chava (Alison Schiller) express their feeling humorously in ‘Matchmaker,’ and Brown’s ‘Far From the Home I Love’ poignantly echoes the parting of all parents and children, no matter the distance.”

“Both Brown and Janisse are great as young lovers.”

        -Jeri Seely, Ink Free News – Fiddler on the Roof

 

“Monica Brown, Haley Jones and Marina Pires bring a do-whoop funk to the role of the urchins, who serve as characters as well as storytellers of the show.”
