PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
“Natalie Bird serves up an energetic ‘Learn Your Lessons Well’.--Jerry Stein, Cincinnati City Beat
“Which leads me to crown Natalie Bird as 2007's outstanding summer player, with a full schedule of applause-worthy performances. Bird caps stand-out turns as comic villainess Sharpay in "High School Musical" at Jersey and as a heart-worn shop girl in NKU's "She Loves Me" with a winning turn as Frenchy, beauty school dropout. She's a hoot, right down to her Fran Drescher laugh.”--Jackie Demaline, Cincinnati Enquirer
“Natalie Bird is perfectly disengaged as the Stage Manager. She's also responsible for many of the set changes and sound effects (and prepare to be blown away when she opens her mouth to sing).”--Jason Grossman, nytheatre.com
