"Brooke Sweeney as Emma is delightful and strong. Her energy and ability to portray Emma even during the toughest emotional moments is impressive, and she leaves the audience in tears during the final scene of the show."

Catherine Macallister

"It's a small cast: only four actors, and all of them absolutely shine on the stage... Penelope Square... brilliantly played by Brooke Sweeney... [she] plays self-centered and obtuse to a T."

Mommy Poppins

"The cast delivered: Brooke E. Sweeney.. [one] of the strongest players comedically, climbed, squirmed, and crawled without any reservations, making [her] compulsively watchable... 

Shaun V. Gohel

"Brooke Sweeney as Frenchy is the sweet, first friend of Sandy, and Sweeney’s portrayal in both vocal quality and believability will have you hoping she changes beauty school plans so she can graduate high school with her friends."

"A Stunning Show"

September 19, 2019

Yesterday's Island loved Terms of Endearment

"The cast for this show is stunning, undergoing a lifetime of emotional moments in a quick eighty-five minute performance that will leave you in awe of their talent... Brooke Sweeney as Emma is delightful and strong. Her energy and ability to portray Emma even during the toughest emotional moments is impressive, and she leaves the audience in tears during the final scene of the show."

Been Working So Hard!

August 26, 2018

Brooke just wrapped up an AMAZING summer working on Footloose with the Theatre Workshop of Nantucket! Funnily enough, she reprised the same role she played in high school - Urleen. Brooke spent the summer cutting loose and slaying harmonies with the sassy girl trio and rest of the cast.

The People Called it Ragtime!

March 06, 2018

Brooke just had the honor to perform in a workshop of Ragtime on Ellis Island (except not quite on Ellis Island yet)! The workshop explored live mixing sound into audience headphones as a way to tackle some of the sound issues that arose during the 2016 concert (mostly due to the grandiosity of the Registry Room on Ellis). Brooke had an incredible week working with some incredibly talented, classy, and kind performers and directors, and making new friends along the way! It was the music of something beginning...

Atlantic Again!

January 03, 2018

Bye Penelope :(

October 08, 2017
