Singin' in the Rain
“Emily Stockdale is stellar – statuesque, beautiful and heart-warming.”
-Eagle Times, Vermont
“Stockdale’s portrayal is exceptional and vivacious. She left everyone commenting during intermission about her total package of talent. Her nuanced repertoire of comedic and dramatic subtleties and slapsticks is captivating, and ultimately endearing."
"The role has been portrayed by such leading ladies as Shelley Winters, Peggy Cass, Elke Sommer, and Lynn Redgrave, and it would come as no surprise to this reviewer if Northern Stage's actress Emily Stockdale doesn't someday find herself joining that elite company."
-The Herald, Vermont
"Emily Stockdale as the hilariously obnoxious Lina Lamont dramatically stands apart through the specificity of every sound she makes."
-Broadway World, Ft. Lauderdale
"On stage alone, she is a joy to behold."
"Emily Stockdale is a delight as Lina Lamont, never breaking from a high-pitched voice that would break down terrorists, and by the end, engendering our pity as an emotionally wounded megalomaniac steamrolled by progress."
-TC Palm, Florida
"Stockdale, bless her, is a stitch, with those kewpie doll looks belying a conniving personality."
"The beautiful Emily Stockdale perfectly sustains Lina Lamont's infamous voice for over two hours. There are not many places in the Book for an audience to find empathy for the character, but she is such a gifted actress that she finds them on her own."
-Broadway from the Balcony
"Especially appealing were Emily Stockdale as April, an amusingly dim airline stewardess whose legs never seem to stop."
-Rochester City Newspaper, Rochester, New York
"In the mix are three women Bobby has dated on and off: April, the ditzy airline hostess, a delicious Emily Stockdale."
