The Mousetrap

For Love, Loss, and What I Wore by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, directed by Rachel Lambert, produced by First Folio Theatre

"Although all the cast are strong, Lindsey Pearlman and Danielle Davis stand out among fine company.  Tall, dark, and gorgeous, Pearlman has more than enough swagger when needed and turns on just the right amount of vulnerability so that the audience misses those smaller moments before they even realize they've been touched by them". —Christine Malcom, EDGE
"Pearlman blazes with a fervor throughout, whether she's discussing the sheer absurdity of jumpsuits or that equally baffling moment in time when paper dresses were a thing." —Catey Sullivan, Chicago Tribune

For Never the Bridesmaid by Bill Jepsen, directed by Richard Shavzin, produced by Polarity Ensemble Theatre

“Lindsey Pearlman is particularly delightful, her choices, perennially out of the ordinary and honest.” —Sarah Terez Rosenblum, Centerstage Chicago
“Pearlman as the pouting Maria stands out, especially when she’s rolling her eyes at all of the brainy intellectualisms spouted by Lake as Anthony.” —Scott Morgan, Windy City Times
“Pearlman, as a tipsy Maria, pulls off one of the funniest and true-to-form scenes on stage… she captures the wacky, bleary-eyed effervescence of a happy drunk with side-splitting accuracy." —Kathleen Tobin, The Beverly Review.
“Pearlman gives a stellar performance as the quirky, nuanced Maria. Not only does she embrace the humor Jepsen clearly intends for the character, she also lends an unexpected softness and earnestness to the role. This duality is something I don’t often see well-executed on stage.”  —Kristen Mitchell, Cheeky Chicago.
“Maria and Anthony were an absolute pleasure to watch on stage. Maria’s animated character enabled the viewer to connect immediately with her. We believably watched her help her distraught friend through a break up. We also observed her slightly drunken state during an interaction with her parents and her brother. She was spot-on with her perfectly written lines. Her ease and genuine affect in these situations made her real.” —Pamela Powell, Real Honest Reviews
