The Gravity of Honey

 “With brilliant performances, the duet captures the stage, alternately with laughter, contention, doubt and faith – existential conversations we recognize from out own inner dialogue.  They do it exceedingly well, each with a little song or dance, each with very demanding dialogue, Lehfeldt, with amazing physical changes to her character.”

Daily Tribune, Vivian De Gain

Wilde Award for Best Actress - The Tale of the Allergist's Wife

The Gravity of Honey

“Both actors in this two-character play provide moving performances.  In sound, appearance, and Attitude, Lynnae Lehfeldt gives a Bette Midler-esque feel to Honey.  She has the range to uncover the often contradictory sides of Honey.  Cocky yet vulnerable, assured while frightened, Honey is one of those roles that lets a good actress shine.  Lehfeldt is brilliant.”

Detroit Monitor, Daniel Skora

I’m Not Rappaport

 “Lynnae Lehfeldt’s tour-de-force turn as Nat’s loving yet long-suffering daughter, Clara, is simply terrific.”

Jewish News, Susan Zweig

Shear Madness

 “There aint’ no hooker anywhere that could teach Lehfeldt a thing or two about brassiness.  The Buxom, leg swinging, gum chewing, high-heel wearing beautician/manicurist really turns the brassiness on when audience members insist she did kiss Eddie Lawrence (Dana Gamarra) after she denies it.  Her looks to kill are an extravaganza of meanness.”

Detroit Monitor, James McGinty

Killing Time

 “Lynnae Lehfeldt was outstanding as the strong-willed daughter who did not want her mother to end her life.”

Michigan Press, Richard Marsh

Key For Two

 “Lynnae Lehfeldt plays Anne, Harriet’s friend (one might even say colleague) come to play an unexpected, not entirely welcome visit.  Lehfeldt is a genuine beauty, which might not be regarded as much of a compliment if it were not that her accomplishment as an actor equal her natural endowments.”

Garrison Observer, Harvey Hess

Tale of the Allergist’s Wife

 “I caught the show during its final preview before Saturday’s opening night, so the leads were still stumbling on some of their cues.  The exception was Lehfeldt, whose Lee proved to be a pitch-perfect blend of name-dropping pretentiousness and sexy sophistication.  Lehfeldt made Lee easy to love and hate at the same time.”

Detroit Free Oress, John Monaghan

On Golden Pond

 “Lynnae Lehfeldt brings the right combination of vulnerability and backbone to Chelsea, the capable, middle-aged woman who feels like an insecure little girl at her childhood home.”

Detroit Free Press, Martin F. Kohn

The Last Yankee

 “Lynnae Lehfeldt, in one of her most memorable performances, shows us every angle of Patricia Hamilton, a woman struggling to find her way back to her family and out of the haze of psychiatric drugs.”

Oakland Press, Judith Cookis Ruben

Murder on the Orient Express

 "...brassy American broad Helen Hubbard, played with scene-stealing charm by Lynnae Lehfeldt."

Rochester News, Suzanne Angeo

Murder on the Orient Express

"Lynnae Lehfeldt plays the frisky loud American as if she is channeling Bette Midler in both song and spirit. The character of Helen Hubbard is big. Lehfeldt embodies it and lets us have it with snarky one liners, like when Hubbard talks about her husbands–past and present. Of the one who died young she scoffed in her midwestern accent, “he had no talent for longevity.” 

Encore Michigan, Angela Colombo

Murder on the Orient Express

"...there is humor in this adaptation and quite a bit of it comes courtesy of Lynnae Lehfeldt as the man-hungry American Helen Hubbard and Ruth Crawford as Russian Princess Dragomiroff. The witty barbs exchanged by their characters felt like I was watching Moira Rose from Schitt’s Creek and the Dowager Countess from Downton Abbey going at it. The breadth of combined stage experience Lehfeldt and Crawford bring to these roles is evident and they are absolutely amazing to watch."

Rochester Media, Sarah Hovis

Tale of the Allergist’s Wife

 “Lynnae Lehfeldt is irresistible as the demon visitor, beautiful, free-spirited, apparently pals with celebrities across the board from entertainment to politics.  One by one, she seduces the members of Marjorie’s household, even as she’s spinning her web around them.”

The Detroit News, Lawrence B. Johnson

 ‘Blithe Spirit’ thrills at The Meadow Brook

"Lynnae Lehfeldt is delightful as the over-the-top, down-to-earth medium, Madame Arcati."

Encore Michigan, Patrice Nolan

Blithe Spirit

"And it was great to see Lehfeldt really possess the role of Madame Arcati. She is absurd and charming at the same time."

Rochester Media, Sarah Hovis

Sure-Fire Fun and Laughs Take the Stage

"Comic performances are top-notch by all,...the ensemble all give delightfully notable performances: Lynnae Lehfeldt as Mrs Peacock,..."

Rochester News, Suzanne Angeo

Of Mice and Men

 “Also notable are,…Lynnae Lehfeldt who gives Curley’s Wife some much appreciated depth.”

Between the Lines, Donald V. Calamia

The Price

 Lynnae Lehfeldt’s Esther is a carefully dissected, complicated melding of wanting more for her husband – and indeed herself – and the disappointment and reward of living vicariously through another.”

Jewish News, Susan Zweig

Shear Madness

 “Lehfeldt in all those classical roles at the Hilberry Theatre sometimes hinted at a latent gift for the Bette Midler school of the epic understatement.  This boon, not to be taken lightly, is given full expression here amid the cream rinses and the hibiscus-hued lipstick.

Detroit Free Press, Lawrence Devine
