"... a brilliant performance …” – The Westerly Sun

Bad Jews– “Corey, as the formidable powerhouse of a wrecking ball gives a brilliant performance...Daphna — with her thick, flowing, dark hair — is a sharp-tongued, devout Jew and Vassar senior who plans to move to Israel after graduation to join her Israeli boyfriend. She's also on stage for nearly the entire 90-plus minutes and can spew heartbreaking-cum-humorous vitriol with such skill and speed she'll have your head spinning as you alternately laugh, gasp and cover your mouth in shock.”


"... Corey plays an incredible Daphna…” – Broadway World

Bad Jews – “Sarah Corey plays an incredible Daphna Feygenbaum...a devote Jew with an invisible Israeli boyfriend, whose humor keeps the play light during even the darkest of intervals.”


"... a masterpiece of well- choreographed comic tension..." – Metro Weekly

Falsettos “Never missing a note, in her charismatic solo numbers, nor in the tricky characterization of a woman blindsided by her husband’s coming out, circa 1979, Corey’s Trina gets her story across with clarity and engaging humor. Her smiling-through-disaster “I’m Breaking Down” is a masterpiece of well- choreographed comic tension."


"... a show highlight..." – Broadway World

Nunsense – “And a cracker jack performance is a show highlight with Sister Mary Amnesia (Sarah Corey), that’s her temporary name because after being hit in the head by a falling crucifix, she can’t remember her real name. She’s an improvising genius in her pop quiz interaction with the audience and is outrageously funny in her number, "So You Want To Be a Nun." And in a number that helps her to recall her name, she’s a country singing star in "I Could've Gone to Nashville.” (Calling her a Loretta Lynn sound alike is an understatement).”
