The Marvelous Wonderettes: Broadway World "The cast, under the direction of Amy Fritsche, who also serves as choreographer, does all it can with the script.  The girls all have good voices, each is featured in several songs, and they all have the coordinated hand, facial expressions and feet movements down pat."

Alice and the Dream Child  at Edinburgh Festival Fringe: The Scotsman "Alice and the Dream Child  makes for a powerful and impressive piece of work that pulls no punches.”

Heathers at Le Moyne College: Syracuse News Times:  "no other production has ever looked or sounded like this one."

Starmites at Porthouse Theatre: Akron Beacon Journal " Choreographer Amy Fritsche's dance shined most in the seriously fun, big band style ​The Cruelty Stomp."

Starmites at Porthouse Theatre: Cleveland Jewish News "Every Dance sequence is a feast" 


The Prom: @ Broadway World: "Amy Fritsche, who obviously has no physical flexibility issues, fills much of her stage-time doing high kicks as Angie Dickinson, whose only wish in life is to play Roxie in CHICAGO.”  She gets to do a master class in Bob Fosse’s Jazz Hands in “Jazz.”"

Next to Normal @ Porthouse Theatre: Cleveland Jewish news "Amy Fritsche is astounding as the mother, Diana. Her every gesture is riddled with manic depression as she goes through the motions of next to normalcy and drags her shell of a self from one attempted medical treatment to another. Her crystal clear voice rocks the Porthouse amphitheater" ​

These Mortal Hosts @ Cleveland Play House: "Amy Fritsche deftly portrays Phyllis as a coiled bundle of nerves until pregnancy releases her in more ways than one."

Best Intentions @ Edinburgh Festival Fringe: Broadway Baby " Amy Fritsche gives a great performance, with wide ranges of emotions and actions..."


Violet @ Porthouse Theatre: "Amy Fritsche is completely believable as Violet. She transforms herself into the character, never leaving any hint that she is acting. Her singing voice is strong. Her renditions of “Lay Down Your Head,” “Raise Me Up,” and “On My Way” are all enveloping.

Superior donuts @ Dobama Theatre: "Amy Fritsche and LaShawn Little, portraying Chicago's finest, were both excellent in developing strong supporting characters"

The Diary of Anne Frank @ Cleveland Playhouse: / "The brave Miep Gies (an open and friendly Amy Fritsche) risks her life and that of her family to smuggle food to the seven in the attic."

Aspects of Love @ CATCO: Columbus Underground "Fritsche handles the sudden shifts in mood and personality of her character with grace and charm"
