“...Jeffrey dominates the stage in her majestic transformation.
Whether playing the victim or the conqueror, Jeffrey unforgettably belts out her resignation, her anger, her happiness. Her beautiful metamorphism is motivated by the strong,
noteworthy women she meets.”
~ Katy Walsh, Chicago Now - The Color Purple
“But the revelation was Trisha Jeffrey."
~ Philadelphia Daily News
“You will absolutely want to hear Jeffrey,
whose lower register is especially gorgeous, sing the role.
More importantly yet, her Celie is intensely empathetic.”
~ Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune - The Color Purple
“Petite Trisha Jeffrey is completely disarming.”
~ Aisle Say - Motown
“Trisha Jeffrey, a petite actress with Broadway credits,
brings a powerhouse voice to Celie, along with the ability to make a
marvelous transition from enduring victim to self-possessed woman
whose essential goodness is never destroyed.”
~ Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times - The Color Purple
“Trisha Jeffrey, did a fabulous job –
and made the character seem real."
~ Shapiro On Theater Newsworks.org - Motown
“Ms. Jeffrey wows the audience with her performances of the songs
“A new life” and “Someone like you”
~ Margie Royal, Delco News Network - Jekyll and Hyde
“Jeffrey has the pipes to vibrate the theatre's chandelier, but the gift that makes her a great actress is the ability to sing the lyrics so the audience can understand them. She has astute breath control, adding emphasis to a word for dramatic effect.”
~ Greer Firestone (Blog) - Jekyll and Hyde
“Trisha Jeffrey projects a child-like innocence bolstered by
adult bravery, and her voice is liquid gold.”
~ Front Row of D Magazine - Caroline or Change
