Star Ledger

High Spirits

Andrea Bianchi is hilarious as the maid who's constantly running lickety-split across the stage.

Florida Today

Don’t Dress for Dinner

Andrea Bianchi as the mistress embellishes her role with fun and stage business. Her strong stage presence enables her to take an otherwise smallish role and bring it to the boil.

Peter Felicia, Star Ledger

Crooners

"Andrea Bianchi gives Sophie the imperious veneer of a pro determined to make her mark on the world, but has the soft underbelly of a teacher who genuinely loves and cares about her students. She's said to have been a popular band singer, and Bianchi has such style even in the way that she sits that you believe it."

Andrea Bianchi does a star turn as a Long Island Matron.

Light and Sound America

Smart Blonde

Andrea Bianchi juggles various Great Women of Show Business, including Comden, Marilyn Monroe (who shows up to compare dumb-blonde poses with Holliday), and -- in a wicked, sketch-comedy turn -- a pushy, gesticulating Ruth Gordon.

Curtain Up

Where the Sun Never Sets

Andrea Bianchi is one of the state's most gifted comedians. She has the skill to make her face into a hilarious mess of confusion, which is one of Bianchi's greatest assets. What fun she is to watch.

The Catskill Chronicle

Shout, the Mod Musical

Gwendolyn's voiceover is done (hysterically) by Andrea Bianchi. Standout songs include Andrea Bianchi's rendition of the searing "I Couldn't Live Without Your Love"

Palm Beach Post

Shooting Craps

Andrea Bianchi's Joanna is extremely winning.

Florida Today

Lend Me a Tenor

Bianchi is particularly funny as Maria, ranting and raving with Italian abandon. Bianchi's movement shows a touch of Martha Raye and is like none other you've seen on stage before.

NY Times

High Spirits

Andrea Bianchi seizes her moments without strangling them.

Stage and Cinema

Smart Blonde

Bianchi in particular comes dangerously close to stealing the show, portraying everyone from Betty Comden to Marilyn Monroe.

The Star Ledger

A Chorus Line

But the one singular sensation is Andrea Bianchi.

Time Square Chronicles

Smart Blonde

Ms. Bianchi's Ruth Gordon, Ethel Barrymore and Marilyn Monroe are standouts.

Theaterscene.net

Smart Blonde

Bianchi's Ruth Gordon is worth the price of admission. It provides a witty comic highpoint of the evening.

NY Times

A Chorus Line

History aside, no one performer has put an intimidating imprint for all time on any of these roles. Here, Andrea Bianchi is a splendidly dear Diana Morales ("I felt nothing"); look no farther.

Westfield Leader

Humbug

Ms. Bianchi is especially memorable.

WMNR

Loot

Andrea Bianchi is thoroughly attractive in this role of both sex object and predator.

New York Times

Smart Blonde

Yetta Cohn is portrayed with benevolent toughness by Andrea Bianchi, who is also highly amusing as the writer and actress Ruth Gordon.

Princeton Packet

Off the Hook

Andrea Bianchi is fun to listen to and especially fun to watch.

The Star Ledger

Humbug

Returning from last year -- but somehow even better this time around -- is Andrea Bianchi as The Ghost of Christmas Present. Bianchi is a corker of a Cockney. Looking somewhat like a pre-"Rain in Spain" Eliza Doolittle with a touch of Lucy Ricardo thrown in, Bianchi dispenses her justice with comic abandon. Her little victory dance is worthy of Rumplestiltskin.

New York Stage Review

Smart Blonde

Andrea Bianchi demonstrates strong comedic talent as she moves from Betty Comden to Ruth Gordon to Holliday's communist -lesbian lover, Yetta Cohn; and finally and unexpectedly, Marilyn Monroe. As someone who spent time around Betty and Adolph and Ruthie, let me add that these impersonations were most cleverly accomplished.

New York Times, Alvin Klein

Crooners

"Bianchi delivers the most consistent and energetically enjoyable performance."

Hollywood Reporter

Smart Blonde

Bianchi delivering particularly amusing vocal impressions of Ruth Gordon, Ethel Barrymore, and Marilyn Monroe among others.

Carolina Curtain Call

Andrea Bianchi brings a vivid sense of humor to her many portayals.

Talkin Broadway

Smart Blonde

For her part, Ms. Bianchi does show some real comic chops and mimicry skills, and her few moments as Ruth Gordon are quite funny.

The Patriot Ledger

Godspell

Andrea Bianchi is a delightful dynamo who can belt a song to the rafters and can dance the daylights out of any number.

Princeton Packet

Crooners

"The role (of Sophie) is beautifully played by Andrea Bianchi and, interestingly, she steals the entire show without singing a note."

Peter Felicia of The Star Ledger

Off the Hook

Best of all is Andrea Bianchi as the ambassador's wife. She's got a perfect Julie Andrews British accent and snobby demeanor. How Bianchi tries to stay awake after she's accidentally taken that sleeping potion is one of the funniest moments of the season.

The Star Ledger

Curvy Widow

One of the highest points has the ladies (Andrea Bianchi, Laura Dean and MaryAnn Hu) as a doo-wop Greek Chorus in the marvelous high-brow "It's Not a Match" (as Bobby trolls through a series of hapless and sometimes amusing dates) and again in Marcos Santana's (Broadway's "On Your Feet") innovative choreography in yoga positions for "So".

The Hour

Loot

Andrea Bianchi is a vicious and sexily murderous Nurse Fay, who moves with the precision of a pill-pushing martinet

Theatremania

Where the Sun Never Sets

Andrea Bianchi's Annie hilariously morphs from liberal lawyer to a conservative spewing hatred.

Star Ledger

Madison

Andrea Bianchi almost steals the show as the French actress who's been told she's a star and assumes that must mean the sun.

Pioneer Press

Babes in Arms

Baby Lou (Andrea Bianchi)an aggressively peppy entertainer who reminds you of Ann Miller with a hefty dose of Liza Minelli. Way Out West features Bianchi doing Merman to end all Mermans.

The Boston Globe

Godspell

Andrea Bianchi, who delivers a dead on impersonation of an elderly Jacob, gives Godspell a comic boost.

Recorder Newspapers

Where the Sun Never Sets

Bianchi puts plenty of vim and vigor into her tirades.
