CABARET,  Trump Plaza, Atlantic City

“… John Dewar as Schultz and Rebecca Hoodwin as Schneider give such touching performances, it’s hard to imagine any other actors in these roles…”–Phil Roura, Daily News

CABARET,  North Carolina Theatre

“…and I’ll definitely remember Rebecca Hoodwin’s weatherbeaten, worn — and entirely appropriate — singing voice as Schneider … “What Would You Do?” –Brian Woods, IndyWeek


THE HEIRESS,  Roundtable Ensemble, NY

“… Rebecca Hoodwin is so focused and so much “in the moment” that you’ll find yourself wishing she had more stage time…”–Michael Portantiere, TheaterMania.com


COOPER SAVAGE, Emerging Artists Theatre, NY

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (tour, various cities)

“Rebecca Hoodwin brings a wonderful depth to Tevye’s wife, Golde”–Kathryn Martin, LA Reader

“Rebecca Hoodwin maintains Golde’s dignity and has a strong clear alto.”–Don Shirley LA Times

“Rebecca Hoodwin as Golde is the perfect match for Bikel’s Tevye and that’s saying something.”—Paul Langford, Long Beach critic

“As Tevye’s wife, Golde, Rebecca Hoodwin gets at the softness as well as the stridency of the wisecracking lady…”— Pamela Sommers,  The Washington Post


SOUND OF MUSIC, East Carolina Summer Theatre

… Rebecca Hoodwin, whose performance as Mother Abbess provides splendid vocals and heartfelt, all-encompassing humanity –William A. Peterson, The Daily Reflector


OKLAHOMA!  Westchester Broadway Theatre

“Director Tom Polum has this sense of the ageless theme of “Oklahoma!” as he takes a superb case – with Ingrid Ladendorf as Laurie, Andrew Husmann as Curley and Rebecca Hoodwin as Aunt Eller – and lets these ingratiating performers captivate us in a bygone world of the two-step and the box lunch social that comes across fresh and firsthand.”–Daphne Kraft, Herald & News


MAN OF LA MANCHA, Forestburgh Playhouse

“Rebecca Hoodwin’s Aldonza/Dulcinea is earthy, coarse and sexual…. to her credit she shows the vulnerable girl beneath the ill-used and hard exterior.  Her rendition of “It’s All the Same,” “What Do You Want of Me,” and her dramatic “Aldonza” gives credence to her long list of performance credits.  She evinces a stage presence and experience which amply compliments the Forestburgh Playhouse standards…”–Barbara Newberg, The Mountain News
