Reviews of The Princeton Festival's She Loves Me

June 15, 2019

"Among the outstanding assets is the performance of Amy Weintraub in the pivotal role of Amalia, a woman who would rather read or go to concerts than toil in a store but has sales skills that win her a retail job even when there was no opening for one.

 

Weintraub adroitly blends Amalia’s tough, sarcastic side with her longingly romantic traits. She can reel off a riposte and look tragically wounded with equal aplomb. She also has a voice that soars through a space that often dwarfs sound. Her songs, “Vanilla Ice Cream” and “Dear Friend,” are vocally demanding, and Weintraub meets every challenge with a clear soprano that brings out the beauty and intensity of both numbers.

 

She is just as adept in the comic confusion of “Where’s My Other Shoe,” a wonderful vignette in which Amalia is missing one major item while fighting to get to work on time." - Neal Zoren

"Soprano Amy Weintraub is outstanding as Amalia, capturing the character’s spunk and charm. She has a lovely soprano, and her delicate sense of musical phrasing makes their two biggest numbers — the wistful “Dear Friend” and the sprightly “Vanilla Ice Cream” — the highlights they need to be." - Donald H Sanborn III

"Amy Weintraub (Amalia) is a powerhouse and was well chosen for the role. 

 

The comedy is really spot on and worth watching just to witness the brilliant delivery that leads to many laugh out loud moments. Add the strong acting, chemistry between the actors, and voices that soar, Amy Weintraub, James Conrad Smith, and Brandon Walters were standouts for me, and you have the recipe for a great production." - R Birkel
