What folks are saying:
“It’s dangerous to drink anytime Weinberger is
about to open her mouth.
Like the Trump women she’s playing, the gutsy dynamo turns on a dime between the roles of daughter and wife, charting in Ivanka and Melania precise gradations of haughty shallowness:
Her Ivanka is to Trump Tower born, a serene grifter confident that there’s a generation of working mothers who believe that buying goods she’s endorsed will contribute to their empowerment. Her Melania, meanwhile, squints up as she tries to remember her scripted blather condemning boulies and their boulying — it’s touchingly hard for her to maintain the illusion of family dignity when she doesn’t believe it herself.”
- Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice
“The performers are all fine singers and fizzy delights,
with Richard Spitaletta and Mia Weinberger emerging as particularly skillful impersonators... When the evening concluded, with
Ms. Weinberger’s Hillary Clinton crooning a riff on
CeeLo Green’s “Forget You,” the audience got to its feet,
lustily singing along.”
- Alexis Soloski, The New York Times
“Weinberger’s impressions of [Betsy] DeVos, Melania Trump,
Kim Jong-un and Hillary Clinton
make Kate McKinnon’s SNL jabs look elementary and dry.”
- Iris Wiener, TheatreLife.com
“Mia Weinberger gives a standout performance playing some of the most recognizable women in American politics.”
“The show-stopping Mia Weinberger plays an extremely (and rightfully) angry Hillary Clinton, demonstrating an outstanding soprano range and frighteningly accurate character work.” - Katharine Nedder, TheEasy.com
“Mia Weinberger, a singing dynamo who is also a comedian in her own right, does an hysterical impression of Melania Trump.”
- Sarah Downs, The Front Row Center
“Weinberger uncannily channels Trump’s daughter Ivanka... Weinberger also uses her impressionist skills to deliver a quietly befuddled First Lady Melania Trump; and in the big finale, a rambunctious Hillary Clinton.”
“Only Weinberger displays the kind of standout, all-around, musical and comic talent, not to mention appearance, that augurs well for a bright showbiz future.”
- Samuel L. Leiter, Theatre’s Leiter Side
