PERFORMANCE REVIEWS

Everyone’s a Critic

"THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES" @ SIERRA MADRE PLAYHOUSE

Role: Betty Jean

"Actor-singer Kate Ponzio’s stunning, soulful range paints way outside the Marvelous Wonderette lines."  

"The powerhouse, four member cast has the chops for both eras."  

- Colorado Boulevard


"Some of the most delicious performances you’ll see all summer"  

- Steven Stanley for StageSceneLA

"KISS ME, KATE" @ GLENDALE CENTRE THEATRE

Role: Hattie

"Both Kate Ponzio and Clayton Farris grandly step out from the chorus, respectively, to lead the company in this productions two clear show-stoppers, 'Another Opnin', Another Show' and 'Too Darn Hot'..."  

- Backstage


"New to GCT, Kate Ponzio catches attention early with her good looks, acting talent and stage presence."  

- California Chronicle


"Kate Ponzio and Clayton Farris both get their center-stage moments to shine, she belting out 'Another Opnin', Another Show' and he hoofing like Gene Kelly in 'Too Darn Hot."'  

- Steven Stanley for StageSceneLA

"KISS ME, KATE" @ CROSWELL OPERA HOUSE

Role: Lois Lane/Bianca

"Complicating their reconciliation is Lois Lane (Kate Ponzio) a shapely Cabaret artist indebted to Graham for giving a "Broadway hoofer a chance to play Shakespeare." Ponzio is the wildcard in the talent mix, glowing in a role that finds her, well, a long way from St. Ursulas.  She quietly and appealingly makes her presence known in Act One's "Tom, Dick or Harry."  By Act Two's "Always True to You (In My Fashion)," she revels in the generous depth and range of her talents." - Monroe Guardian

"THE PLEASURE IS YOURS" AT STERLING'S UPSTAIRS (CABARET VENUE)

Role: Co-Creater and Star

"Kate Ponzio is a very likable and funny character singer and actress."  

- Robert Machray of StageHappenings.com

"Two young ladies, each a competitor for LA’s Next Great Stage Star; Kate Ponzio and Katrina Rennells made their cabaret debut and proved that they are indeed an attractive musical duo. Sharing the stage happily vying for the spotlight; they are a couple to be reckoned with in an aptly titled: “The Pleasure Is Yours” act....When the girl’s connect to the right material, they are dead on and we are with them every step of the way. With the right approach, emotional and vocal connection added to their natural charm and sense of fun…it’s true; The girls are right and “The Pleasure Is Truly Ours”."  

- Michael Ford of Stage Happenings

"SAVE ME A SPOT!" - ORIGINAL MUSICAL, PREMIERING AT HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FESTIVAL

Role: Hank

"Their cast were all solidly talented and well-voiced.  Except for Kate Ponzio – she was two steps above terrific."
- Ernest Kearney for The TVolution
