“Peggy Sawyer from Allentown, PA is played by Julie Kavanagh in her Weston debut. She plays sassy, saucy, serious, sad and sober with equal strength. She dances faster and finer than her compatriots. She sings with a voice that has more power than beauty and when she’s done with a tune you want her to sing it again. As the girl who gets the chance of a lifetime it would seem that she is really getting it here, on this stage, herself. Her sweet enthusiasm is pure and golden, her final moments truly touching in their sincerity. Kavanagh could easily become the next big star on the Great White Way.”
- Edge, Boston
“Julie Kavanagh plays the wide-eyed Peggy Sawyer, fresh off the bus from Allentown, Pa., and destined for Broadway stardom. Kavanagh’s Sawyer has plenty of spunk and the talent to back it up. She can sing, she can act, she can dance and she can break your heart.”
-The Chester Telegraph
“The energetic Theatre Aspen cast nails it, making their furry, fuzzy, foul-mouthed props full-bodied characters. Watching Jeffrey Correia do double-duty as two of the musical’s lead male characters, and Julie Kavanagh do the same with its pair of female foils, is something to behold.”
- Aspen Daily Times
“Robert and Janet (Danny Gardner and Julie Kavanagh) as the to-be-marrieds bring a ton of impressive Broadway-level bravado and talent to their numbers - hilarious parodies of the romantic muddles that invade the musical comedy genre.”
-The Barnstable Patriot
"Then there’s the ironic ‘Show Off’ in which Kavanagh dismisses countless song conventions while simultaneously executing them, a satirical hoot for musical comedy buffs.”
- South Shore Critic
“Julie Kavanagh is also delightful as Tracy’s less confident friend, Penny Pingleton. Eschewing the usual ‘Broadway belt’ approach to singing the role for the most part, she brings oodles of personality and certainly connects with her character and delivers a strong performance particularly during “Without Love.”
