"cute as a button Libby West"
"The rest of the cast acquit themselves well, particularly Libby West as Dave's wife"
"West is great as Frankie, a damaged survivor ... West successfully navigates the shoals of Frankie's feelings: pleasure, panic, claustrophobia, desperation, joy and uneasy acceptance."
"Libby West's Frankie was a wonder to behold...worn-down, barely getting by,...jaded toward men...enchanted, fearful, amused. She made Frankie majestic, in a disheveled way. "
"West excels in her engaging portrait of a rising star"
"A smoldering West anchors the play's moral conscience"
"As Elvira, Libby West delivers yet another terrific performance - fiery, passionate, and soulful."
"But it's West's Elvira who shines here. Her grief is profound (as her misguided love must have been ecstatic). Though her voice projects the agony she's endured on account of her flamboyant cad, she moves with a still-proud carriage; somehow she still has a shred of Scarlet-O'Hara-after-Tara-burns dignity in her."
"Libby West...is ravishing"

"Libby West's Plowright plays the perfect foil to Shaughnessy's Olivier...in the end herself delivering the most poignant moment in the play"
"impeccable...Libby West's boisterous take on the the hell-raising Heather, an insatiable carnivore, is at once funny and fearsome."
"standout performance by...Libby West as a sometimes sarcastic, cutting cannibal who has absolutely no concern for other people except as food for herself"
"West, one of our busiest and most versatile actresses, is the scruffiest, raunchiest, filthiest Heather you're likely to see on stage... That the same actress who embodied the small town beauty of Madge in Picnic and the Hollywood glamour of Lily Garland in Twentieth Century could play a character who makes Sigourney Weaver's in Alien seem like a girl from finishing school is nothing short of miraculous."
"the lovely, lonely Gerta (stunningly performed by Libby West)"
"Libby West is a confection"
"West is a double of the incomparable Barbara Stanwyck in her performance of the hard-boiled Lily"

"West is truly enchanting as opera diva Irene; she has a strong presence
and an easy way that make her a perfect foil for Capri and Ballard."
"Libby West, excellent"
"Especially vulnerable is beautiful Madge (Libby West)...Libby West catches
Inge's nuances in a Madge who wants to be more than just a pretty face."
"outstanding...as Madge, the...prettier daughter who wants to escape her
job at the dime store, Libby West finds a subtle richness in her character"
"As Madge, the beauty trapped in her own perfection, Libby West shows
spirit and range "
"Libby West, in a spectacular performance...Don't miss this one!"
"West dominates the play as the Electra-figure Lavinia, with a performance of
scarifying intensity. It's the gradual destruction of her newly hopeful
demeanor in the final act, however, the realization that she will never be
allowed happiness, that haunts us like a slowly diminishing note of music as
we exit this harrowing, brilliant production."
"Stunning...[her] Vinnie ranges from repressed fury to accepting herself
as her sensuous mother's daughter."
"West is compelling"

"West, Kelly, and Borba are standouts."
"West is positively luminous in the role. She scores both comically...and dramatically"
"The richly etched performances are led by West's multidimensional portrait of the
betrayed spouse. West does a laudable job of illuminating the darker aspects of the story.
She also excels at affecting distinct voices."
"The performances were all top-notch, especially Libby West's Julie, the wife...She can be
sexy, she can be snide, and she can be cold-blooded...Her scene as the judge is brilliant:
she truly approaches madness."
"Libby West as Madame de Tourvel communicates brilliantly the agony of one whose emotions
have been set ablaze only to find out her lover is a sham hypocrite."
"West's affecting fall from casual security through bewildered attraction to joy and
"Libby West's appealing Roxane journeys convincingly from a vivacious girl swept up
by surface looks to a serene woman who has learned the true meaning of love."
"Libby West is delightful as a petite porcelain Roxane."
"Roxane, fetchingly played by pretty Libby West"
"Libby West, as the love interest, moves easily from her early superficial infatuation
to her later spiritual attraction to Cyrano. West's beauty stands up well."
"Libby [West] lends her pliable and lithe traits for a superb interpretation of Eliza
Doolittle. She is wonderfully feisty."
"[West's] transformation from guttersnipe to duchess is astounding...She charms at first
as the flower girl; she tickles when she makes her first entrance into society; and she
oozes power and emotion in the second act. When she is left alone on stage in the beginning
of the act, it's the most powerful silence I've seen on stage in quite some time."
"major babe Irina (played by the delicious Libby [West]; think Julie Newmar) who reads
tea leaves and looks spectacular in red."
"[West] as Irina is a confident, funny Russian beauty; she is stunning, exotic, perfect.
[West] lets us see the real woman beneath the surface, yearning for a different life, but
not at the cost of her soul."
"lovely Libby [West]"
"praise goes to Libby [West], for her eccentric survivor...If I want the Kremlin and
environs as a travel destination, I'm going to insist on [West] as my companion."
"[West] is lovely and charming as Miranda."

gliding through a production"
"Libby [West] is a delight."
"Libby [West] plays the saucy vixen. Her Regina is an inspired schemer, refreshingly
"The real star of the play is the mesmerizing Libby [West]. [West] is not only a
strikingly beautiful woman, but she has a presence that's not matched by any of her cast
members. The second she comes on stage, it's obvious. She's cool and collected, dark
eyes burning like embers from her pale, delicate face. As the play progresses...she
becomes a fiercely seductive femme fatale...She stands out from the rest of the cast
throughout the entire production...[West] is absolutely enchanting."
