"Especially good is Angelica (Vanessa Morosco), a prized courtesan who is suddenly at liberty." Rachel Saltz, The New York Times

"The splendid Vanessa Morosco is a revelation as Gwendolen, finding the sharp imperiousness in her still-nascent nature that lets us understand that this young woman will in fact grow up to be exactly like her mother. I've never seen an actress play Gwendolen this way, and I loved its appropriateness." Martin Denton,

"Vanessa Morosco finds awkward humor and unexpected depth in Shakespeare's gangly heroine. What's more remarkable is that Morosco, the most engaging performer in the company, manages all this [in addition to] slapstick." Chris Davis, Memphis Flyer

"Vanessa Morosco is an ideal choice to play Candida, projecting her character's confident assurance, independence and wisdom." Mary Johnson, The Baltimore Sun

"Morosco may not know she holds the moral lesson of this production in her capable hands, but her performance as Emilia is so stunning that there's also no reason to believe she doesn't." Christopher Blank, Go Memphis
