ACTING Press

Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd (The Mac-Haydn Theatre)

"The cast consists of the breathlessly talented Emily Kron who uses every bit of comic ability to turn the most vile woman in the entire lexicon of femme fatales into a distinct charmer whose nuttiness has purpose. Singing, dancing, acting and reacting, Kron imbues Lovett with an unequivocal humanity. This is an actress with a future if the breaks come along. We are looking at the musical theatre’s future here in Chatham." Peter J. Bergman, The Berkshire Edge

"Kron, as Mrs. Lovett, was an utter joy. The fun she had playing the character was evident, and she imparted nuance in scenes where it would have been easier to ham it up; her Mrs. Lovett was more well-rounded character-wise than I’ve seen elsewhere, and watching her was delightful."  -Amy Durant, The Alt

"Emily Kron plays the wicked witch of East London with a quirky smile and an attitude we recognize from Ethel Merman shows and a raucous musical delivery all her own." Peter J. Bergman, The Berkshire Edge

"Mrs. Lovett in the hands of Emily Kron is also a different take.  Here her gruesome plan to use Todd’s victims in her pies is almost joyous rather than forbidding.  Her energy and brightness almost makes her endearing… a frightful thought." - Macey Levin, Berkshrie On Stage

Vera in Struck (Theatre Raleigh)

"Emily Kron, as Vera, has a unique facility for showing the actress within her character’s character. Vera overplays her pain and discomfort just enough not to be “hamming it up,” but we can see she’s taking advantage of the situation. Her camping, while talking to her mother on the phone, is simply precious, and very believable." Maratha Keravuori, Triangle Arts & Entertainment

"Emily Kron coaxes laughter from the audience with groans, grimaces, and sighs reminiscent of Mary Richards on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Kron retains our sympathy throughout." -Pamela Vesper, Triangle Arts & Entertainment

"Rattan elicits distinctive performances from her cast. Emily Kron’s Vera is needy and neurotic yet winning in her quest to find meaning for herself. She plays comfortably with Sid Solomon’s quietly suffering but devoted Nate, a believably loving couple." Roy Dicks, The News & Observer

Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors (Playhouse On Park)

"A particular attraction of POP’s production is Emily Kron as battered, not-too-bright shopgirl Audrey. Her rendering of “Somewhere That’s Green” is both funny and touching, and “Suddenly Seymour,” her duet with smitten shopboy Seymour (Steven Mooney), who discovers the unusual plant he names Audrey II, is surprisingly romantic. She’s got star power not showcased enough" - Donald Brown, New Haven Review

"Ms. Kron, from her very first sashay on stage to her powerhouse belting of Audrey's musical numbers, conveyed less victim and more of a woman resigned to her fate, stuck on Skid Row." -Joseph Harrison, Broadway World

"And then there’s Kron, who is faced with making the role that has the strongest “copyright,” since it was created by Ellen Green in the original production and the subsequent film, her own. This she does with a great deal of comic flair and sensitivity, and her rendition of “Somewhere That’s Green,” a classic “I Want” number, is heartbreakingly poignant, as is her cri de coeur in the “Suddenly, Seymour” duet with Mooney." - Geary Danihy, CT Theater News and Reviews

"Audrey is a hard part to cast, but both Emily Kron and the director have wisely avoided anything close to a copy of creator Ellen Greene's indelible performance in the role. Kron is a little less ditzy as Audrey, but she still manages to get all the laughs, and her "Somewhere That's Green" solo is enormously touching. She gets even better in the second act, with her almost show-stopping singing in her part of the duet, "Suddenly, Seymour." Also, she looks great in the series of lovingly provocative dresses that Kate Bunce has designed for her." -Zander Opper, Talkin' Broadway

"Steven Mooney and Emily Kron realize that this show demands that they be very funny and also sing very well. They don't let the shtick get in the way of Menken's exquisite melodies, brazenly belting their romantic duet "Suddenly Seymour." - Christopher Anott, The Hartford Courant

"Emily Kron (Audrey) and Steven Mooney (Seymour) embody their characters in a way that cuts to the core of that idea. As an audience, we see the challenges their characters face; yet, Kron and Mooney beautifully portray the passion that keeps them moving forward despite it all." - Robby Dougher, Applaud Squad

Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins (Northern Stage)

"Emily Kron is brilliant as Mary Poppins. Kron makes the character her own. She manages to make Mary Poppins more appealing to American audiences than the beloved Julie Andrews did in the original. Kron eschews the British stiff upper lip of Mary Poppins and instead adds a tinge of humor to her characterization..."- Jo Evarts, The Upper Valley's Best Arts & Events, The Complete Hoot

"We can also be grateful that the role of the indefatigable Miss Poppins is inhabited by Emily Kron, who brings to the part the necessary combination of steely charm, inarguable logic and airy mystery" Nicola Smith, The Valley News

"Emily Kron’s Mary Poppins is crisp, stern and delightful...Kron sings, dances and delivers in her own distinct manner, and before you know it Kron makes Poppins her own" -David Lampe-Wilson, The Chester Telegraph

"Northern Stage veteran Emily Kron sang and danced beautifully, and was an attractive Mary Poppins...She was sympathetic and convincing" - Jim Lowe, Times Argus Online / Vermont Today

Phoebe in As You Like It (The Denver Center)

"Then there’s Emily Kron as dark-eyed, black-haired Phoebe...Kron is profoundly and emphatically watchable" - Juliet Wittman, Westword  

"Emily Kron works as much humor as possible from the role of lovelorn, misguided and all-too-desperate shepherdess Phoebe" - Joanne Ostrow, Denver Post Theater Critic

Nellie in South Pacific (Mac-Haydn)

"If there is any element in this work that is more appealing than that, I don’t know what it is and it is played to perfection by Emily Kron as Nellie Forbush. Kron is a powerhouse. She sings with a bright, electric tone in her voice. She moves beautifully and is funny when it is called for, particularly in the song “Honey Bun.” She dances gracefully and underplays the dramatic moments into reality instead of staginess. It is a wonderful interpretation of this most difficult role that includes taking a shower and washing her hair on stage. Yes – with water" - J Peter Bergman, Berkshire Light Focus

Lil Red in Into the Woods (Northern Stage)

"Emily Kron is particularly winning as a tough-minded, impertinent Red Riding Hood; she commands attention whenever she’s on stage." -Nicola Smith, Valley News

"Emily Kron as Little Red never onces descended into saccharin insouciance; she's got a superb voice, a powerful, sprite-like presence, and a tumble of hair that makes it clear no one should mess with her." -The Bard Owl

"Charismatic and charming performances were offered by...Emily Kron as Little Red Riding Hood. [She] sang beautifully." -Jim Lowe, Times Argus

Genvieve in The Baker's Wife (The Mac-Haydn Theater)

"Kron is wonderful in the role, singing the hit tune “Meadowlark” with great beauty" - J Peter Bergman, The Berkshire Edge

Rona Piretti in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Playhouse On Park)

"But it was Kron's heartfelt performance as the Queen Bee with a stellar singing voice that not only gave the show its adult perspective but its knowing heart." - Frank Rizzo, The Hartford Courant

"'The I Love You Song,' sung with Kron playing the mother and Payne the father, simply stops the show." - Geary Danihy, CT Theater News and Reveiws

"Of those running the show, Kron gives her character just the right touch of rah-rah enthusiasm and is a lovely, sweet-voiced, lithe addition to the ensemble numbers..." - Geary Danihy, CT Theater News and Reveiws 

"As the adults, Emily Kron fares best as Rona Lisa, with an overconfidence and smarm typical of the region’s most successful real estate agent. She glows with pride in the Spelling Bee and the pleasurable memories of her win (with the word “syzygy”) 22 years previously and revels in her excitement when the competition reaches the final two. Kron has fun with Sheinkin’s drolly absurd biographical details about the contestant’s lives." - Andrew Beck, Hartford Arts Examiner

Nora in Sweet Tooth (Cherry Lane Theater)

"Emily Kron, as Nora, gives us an honest performance textured with subtle emotions" -Joan Kane, nytheatre.com

Graciana in Love in a Tub (LaMaMa)

"The great exception is Emily Kron, a dynamic triple threat who, as Graciana, melds Restoration heroine with rock diva and hits us with her best shot every chance she gets." -Jason Jacobs, nytheatre.com

"Emily Kron's marvelous voice adds a touch of class." -Tom Penketh, Backstage.com

Frenchie in Cabaret (Playhouse On Park)

"Emily Kron is haunting in her sad solo, sung in German, as the club chanteuse." -Frank Rizzo, The Hartford Courant 

Jen in Brenda (Robert Moss Theater)

"Jen is played with layered complexity by Emily Kron. She's spinning off her own trauma when we meet her and gains clarity throughout the show. Jen... literally (and figuratively) driv[es] the play to the finish line." - Alice Klugherez, Usher Nonsense
