“Julie Kavanagh plays Lila Dixon, Ted's ex-fiancé who chooses show business over marriage. This top-notch performer dazzles in the role, especially when she shows off her powerhouse vocals in numbers such as "Heat Wave," and "Plenty to be Thankful For." She is a standout comedic actress with over-the-top, but very character appropriate, facial expressions. Her dancing is impressive as well - she is definitely a triple threat.”

“Julie Kavanagh, last seen as Miss Gardner in BMA’s fiery production of ‘Carrie: The Musical’ finds just the right amount of ditz and zaniness to bring the part of Lily St. Regis, the dumb, whiny girlfriend of Rooster Hannigan, so vividly to life. There’s snap and polish to her broad comic strokes. Her dancing is absolutely dazzling. Vocally she is at her peak and communicates her character’s dumbness and obvious sexiness in true 1930’s movie fashion.”
- James V. Ruocco
“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
“Julie Kavanagh's belt and Lauren Sprague's huge soprano bring beauty and intelligence to Herman's lyrics. In addition, Kavanagh is a madcap delight in "Tap Your Troubles Away," backed by "the boys.”
“Julie Kavanagh comically captures Lila’s carefree superficiality –– 'I can’t live out here with all these vegetables.'”
“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.”
