The Merchant of Venice

“I enjoyed the pertinent humour of Erica Lovell as Nerissa.” – Kevin Jackson, KJ Theatre Diary

“Similarly pleasing was Damien Strouthos as Gratiano (a friend of Bassanio) and Erica Lovell as Nerissa (Portia’s lady-in-waiting and confidant), both of whom provided solid comic relief (individually and as lovers).” – Dinner and Show

A Conversation

“Erica Lovell is powerfully credible as the intelligent, outspoken, loyal sister, Gail.” – Ron Lee, SydneyChic.com.au

Truth, Beauty, and a Picture of You

“…Lovell’s voice as love interest brings a sonorous sweetness to Freedman’s straight-talking honest lyrics.” – Cassie Tongue, AussieTheatre.Com.Au

General

A belters belter, Erica is also a spectacular young actress of great versatility.” – David Allen, DivaKnowsBest.wordpress.com

Happiness

“Erica Lovell continues to please. She follows up the role of ‘Bitch’ in Great Falls, with an equally strong and layered portrayal as Zelda. Lovell listens well on stage, giving her characters more depth and belief. Her facial expressions as she listens to Glen Hazeldine rave as Evan, her supercilious, no-ones-going- to-catch-me-being-sexist boss, are just as telling as any words she might have uttered should she be given the chance to interrupt. Both she and Hazeldine make the very most of these scenes, and the audience love them for it!” – Carol Wimmer, StageWhispers.Com.Au

Great Falls

“Erica Lovell gives an inspired, impassioned performance in the role.” – Lynne Lancaster, ArtsHub.com.au

“The casting is superb. Stollery and Lovell have a compelling on stage chemistry and shine in their roles, portraying the emotionally charged, character driven plot exceptionally well.” – Charlotte Karp, StageMilk.com.au

“I was most impressed with Lovell. There was never a moment I didn’t believe her and she had some very difficult material to unpack on stage.” – Jane Simmons, ShitOnYourPlay.blogspot.com.au

Ordinary Days

“While all members of the cast deliver exceptional performances, it is Erica Lovell’s Deb that will steal hearts and perhaps the entire show. In turns abrasive and vulnerable, she is wickedly funny and helplessly lovable. It is almost inconceivable that her music theatre career began in 2008; she is one of the most exciting performers I’ve seen of late on Sydney stages.” – Cassie Tongue, AussieTheatre.Com

“Lovell’s hilarious, yet honest and vulnerable portrayal is a big part of that success, perfectly embodying the frustrated spirit of a terminally captive New Yorker…” – Christian Baines, SameSame.Com.Au

“Erica Lovell has a terrific set of pipes!” – Gareth Beal, ArtsHub.Com.Au

“Erica Lovell is an impressive young talent with a big, big Broadway Belt voice, and a bewitching flair for comedy.” – Neil Litchfield, StageWhispers.Com.Au

“Lovell is laugh-out-loud funny as the angry, self-absorbed graduate student. Her Dear Professor Thompson was a standout.” – Deborah FitzGerald, AustralianStage.Com.Au
