DIRECTING: 


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" 



Acting:


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


 Ella Enchanted ​@ Dobama Theatre: Cleveland Jewish News "The acting is imbued with brilliant touches of innovation (look for Fritsche’s roaming beauty marks)"


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" 


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


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


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


Violet @ Porthouse Theatre: broadwayworld.com "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.


A Little Night Music @ Porthouse Theatre: Cleveland jewish News: " particularly the performances turned in by Fritsche and Anders, who play the “other” woman in their own husband’s life. Both find the humanity and all of the humor in this romantic comedy and their duet – the tragic and brilliantly conceived “Every Day a Little Death” – is absolutely breathtaking."
