What the Critics Say About

Thea White


Reviews for The Last Romance by JoeDiPeitro
Bickford Theater, East Coast premier, Sept-Oct 2013

". . .White has the charm and zest for life that makes her intriguing to Ralph. . .[J.C.] Hoyt, Thea Ruth White as Carol, Noreen Farley as Rose and Cory Singer as the young man are all convincing in their roles."

Liz Keill, September 30, 2013, The Alternative Press 

". . .Carol, played by Thea Ruth White with an elegance and reserve that many women lack today. . .treats Ralph with a distant grace. . .She’s a bit mysterious. . .”

Sherri Rase, urban-telegraph.com, October 6, 2013

"Thea Ruth White is an appropriately buttoned-up WASP, all goo-goo-eyed over her little rat-like dog Peaches. We watch, fascinated, as White shows Carol letting down her guard little by little. . .”

Ruth Ross, nj arts maven, September 30, 2013

"The elegant, refined Carol. . .is beautifully played by Thea Ruth White."

Rick Busciglio, Northern NJ Theater Examiner, September 29, 2013

"As Carol, Thea Ruth White demonstrates the happiness that Carol finds in removing the confining constraints of extreme propriety."

Reviews from other plays. . . 

"Thea White is simply delicious as the company's leading lady (playing the housemaid).  Maintaining a look as if she had flash bulbs constantly going off in front of her eyes, White brings to her sardine scenes a truly Stanislavskian truth."

Simon Saltzman on Noises Off, The Daily Record 

"The best played bit in the show is a dual triumph shared with Thea White, who plays the former Charlie's last romantic conquest.  In a mano a mano of formidable proportions, Mlles. Ruth and Ruta (Lee) swap civilities, insults, drinks and secrets in what turns out to be a reeling drunk scene. It's an occasion for the highest hilarity--hence a tribute to Miss White's acting prowess that she exits on a note of genuine pathos."

Perry Stewart on the Dallas Country Dinner Playhouse production of Goodbye, Charlie

"The shining star of the production--in this reviewer's opinion--was Thea White, whose character, 'Dotty Otley,' was performed with great color, style and humor."

DR's review of Noises Off at NJ Shakespeare Festival  

"There were few doubts among the first-night audience as to the outstanding performance in the presentation.  Thea White, as Juliet's prating nurse, and Victor Raider-Wexler as bawdy Mercutio, lifted the play along in a sparkling rush."
