REVIEWS

BANDSTAND NATIONAL TOUR 

"Roxy York’s performance as Julia’s mother June Adams is another standout. Her comedic moments in the first half of the show stand out as some of the most enjoyable of the act, and her solo number in the second act, “Everything Happens,” is truly gut-wrenching. The ability to garner the largest laughs and some of the biggest heartbreaks of the show is no easy feat, but York makes it look simple."

                     -The Georgetown Voice

"Julia’s mother Mrs. Adams (Roxy York), who delivers one of the show’s most wrenching songs (“Everything Happens”), a discordant melody reminiscent of a Sondheim tune.  York, who lights up the first half of the show with her quick comedic moments and bubbling-over joyfulness, takes full advantage, pulling the audience into a raw emotional performance."

                 

                     -DC Theatre Scene 

"York absolutely steals every scene she appears in and is a hilarious addition to the cast. Her voice is also excellent- clear and commanding. But like the rest of the cast, she can also handle the more serious subject matter required by the piece, especially in her Act II song “Everything Happens.”

                       -MD Theatre Guide

"Roxy York, who plays Mrs. June Adams, Julia’s mom, illuminated the stage with her performance. The character herself has a revolutionary role in the show as she transforms from a simple comedic figure to the leading voice of wisdom which is culminated through her “Everything Happens.”

                       -The Tower

"Julia's mother, June (Roxy York) provides comic relief. She also sings beautifully with a rich tone."

                       -Broadway World 

"Julia's mother, Mrs. June Adams, played by the talented Roxy York, brought the laughs with her perfectly timed quips and awkward "mom-ism's"."

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST NATIONAL TOUR

 

"Besides the star crossed lovers, the youthful cast is full of many supporting characters who bring new life to these inanimate objects, particularly Roxy York, as the opera-diva turned wardrobe. York is a big voiced comedienne that has great stage presence."

                                 

                                   -Broadway World

 

"The absolute standout in the play was Madame Bouche (Roxy York). She had perfect timing and delivered over the top lines for her over the top personality. The audience laughed every time she got on stage."

               

                                     -Examiner   

 

"Roxy York's operatic diva adds comic relief and vocal chops."

 

                                     -Philly.com

 

"Madame de la Grande Bouche (Roxy York), an opera singing wardrobe received an applause each entrance, and delivered an outstanding performance."

 

                                    -The Arkansas Traveler      

 

"Madame de la Grande Bouche was a joy to watch as performed by Roxy York. York has a comedic grace that was first-rate. She was able to convey her warmth and grace through her voice inflections and charm. It was delightful to watch her glide across the stage with the sophistication of an opera singer while being costumed as a chifferobe."

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST GATEWAY PLAYHOUSE

"Although Ms. York's role is relatively small in the grand scheme of the musical, she steals every scene she is in and brought a layer of tongue-in-cheek comedy that truly made her stand out - along with her enormous costume."

                                - Broadway World 

"Madame de la Grande Bouche, the wardrobe opera singer, is brought to life by the powerhouse Roxy York."

"Other standouts in this large, talented ensemble include Adam Du Plessis and Roxy York as Drake and Mrs. Pugh as the very competent heads of the household staff."

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF

 

"As Tevye’s wife, Golde, Roxy York stands up, in stature and in voice, to the character, based on the short stories of Sholem Aleichem. Such is Roxy’s gravitas that when she interrupts one of Tevye’s discussions with God, he quickly tells his deity, “I’ll talk with you later.”
