Reviews for "Maytag Virgin"
"Capasso’s Lizzy is conflicted, sexually frustrated, warm, likable and hilarious. The term “motormouth” does not adequately describe her penchant for chatter: The woman simply doesn’t shut up. Jacks sums it up perfectly, “You say it all out loud, huh?” When explaining why she can’t fall in love with a Catholic, Lizzy quips: “It’s just not done!” Her special meditation to “keep the dark thoughts out” is priceless. Capasso exquisitely captures all of Lizzy’s nuances. Her acting is flawless, and her Southern accent is spot-on. She has several long monologues in this production—hundreds and hundreds of lines to memorize—and I did not notice a single flub. Quite impressive." -- Bonnie Gilgallon, cvindependent.com
"To be completely frank, I want Capasso's Lizzy to be my BFF. I want to sit on a porch and drink spiked, sweet tea (hate it, don't care) with her all afternoon shooting the breeze. She's smart, insecure, funny and talks an awful lot, but she's a very interesting gal, and she is so very, very real. From the moment Capasso hits the stage it's hard to stop watching her. The fact that she is rarely off stage nor that she is one character in a two-character play has nothing to do with it. Capasso slips into Lizzy with the ease of a thetan into a Scientologist's body. Her performance is flawless." -- Kay Kudukis, broadwayworld.com
"...indeed, the evening belongs to actors Kay Capasso and Joel Bryant. This is an actor’s play, and these two marvelous actors know exactly how to please an audience. Their on-stage chemistry, stamina, and pacing allows them to always be in the moment in their performances. It’s good stuff." -- Jack Lyons, Desert Local News
"As Lizzy, Kay Capasso is utter perfection. From her flawless (and consistent) accent to her impeccable comic timing she is a presence that is impossible to ignore."--Stephen Radosh, Gay Desert Guide
"...Capasso makes an impressive desert debut with a subtly evolving performance that is terrifically engaging." --Bruce Fessier, Palm Springs Desert Sun

Review for "August: Osage County"
"Kay Capasso as Mattie Fae is hilarious. She uses so much body language and injects loads of sass into her character. She and Shawn Duthie as Mattie Fae’ s husband, Charlie, have perfectly timed banter. " - Lana Sweeten-Shults, Times Record News

Made the Best Theater 2013 list (Metroland) and Top 5 of 2013 (Times Union)
"Twyla Sturdy is played with gusto, a wonderful sense of fear and a truly honest way of communicating her own feelings by Kay Capasso. Her transition in the second half of the play is done with charm and grace and nice self-deprecating sensibility. Capasso brings this woman to crystalline life." -J. Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus
"The performances were perfect...Kay Capasso as the sister was strong to all while hiding her own emotional frailties." -Bob Goepfert (of "The Troy Record", "The Saratogian", and WAMC)
