June 20 2008
"Capable actresses fill the three main roles. Erica Aubrey, as Judy Bernly, stands up to her ex-husband, who left her for a younger woman, in a rousing “Get Out and Stay Out” that received a roar of approval from the audience."
-Aileen Jacobson, New York Times
"Erica Aubrey chilled my spine when she opened her mouth to sing. As soon as she left the room, I said, and I quote, "She's the one."
-James Valcq, Composer of the musical Spitfire Grill in an article he authored for the Green Bay Press
"...perhaps the most poignant moment in the show is Aubrey's lullaby-like song "Wild Bird."...."
-Warren Bluhm, in a review of Spitifre Grill written for the Door County Advocate
"Keyboardist Erica Aubrey, blond, flirty, and sexy in a strapless bustier often interjects women's comments into the men's lyrical narratives, and manages a mean country yodel in a few solos, notably "I Wanna Be a Cowboy's Sweetheart."
-Aisle Say, Sarasota, Florida
"If I had to choose the one most powerful song of the whole show though, it would be Dolly Parton's "Jolene," sung with real passion by Aubrey. Aubrey delivers the song formidably, hitting the high notes without fail and reminding every Jolene in the audience that "you don't know what he means to me, Jolene."
- Creative Loafing, Sarasota, Florida
"Erica Rowlett (Aubrey) is the other key female character, Helen, the woman whose face launched a thousand ships and incited the Trojan War. Rowlett (Aubrey) is pretty and competently plays her role, which could be seen as metaphor for the presence of weapons of mass destruction."
- Nashville Scene
