TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD IN WSJ AGAIN!
“Christopher Sergel’s workmanlike 1991 stage adaptation of “Mockingbird,” a regional-theater staple that I saw done three years ago by Florida’s Orlando Shakespeare Theatre, is both truer to the book and far more dramatically effective. Moreover, that company’s small-scale staging, sensitively directed by Thomas Ouellette, was superior in every way to Bartlett Sher’s overblown, over-designed Broadway version...”.
TERRY TEACHOUT Wall Street JOURNAL
A RAISIN IN THE SUN
AMERICAN STAGE THEATRE "...As Ruth, one of the harder roles to play because she doesn't have the same histrionics as the rest of the cast, Sheryl Carbonell is brilliant in her quieter moments. There is an instant where everyone else onstage is ready to give up, but she so wants her life to change, but her desperate pleas fall on deaf ears. Ruth is drowning, and she knows it, and we know it. It's galvanizing and tears out your heart; she wants out more than anything--a new start for her family and her unborn child. And Carbonell portrays this winningly...."
BROADWAY WORLD REVIEW-PETER NASON
ANTONY & CLEOPATRA
Orlando Shakespeare Theatre ...Orlando Shakespeare Theatre
"...Antony as played by Michael Dorn, fights to keep death at bay in order to see his beautiful and complicated lover Cleopatra one last time, as was played during the April 12th performance by Caralyn Kozlowski’s understudy, Sheryl Carbonell..."
SCI-FI PULSE ..."Sheryl Remekie Carbonell just went onstage for Shakespeare's most challenging, complex, and colorful character, Cleopatra. Not only did she do this with only four rehearsals under her belt, she did it with a brightness and commitment that inspired those of us watching from backstage. I'm so happy I got to know you this year, Sheryl, and happier to have shared the stage with you tonight!"...
KODY GRASSETT (Actor and Castmate, Agrippa )
Mad Cow Theatre
"captured the heart of long-suffering wife Rose (Sheryl Carbonell in an exquisitely modulated performance..." "...solidly engaging production..."
"Ruined's tale is horrifyingly ugly and uncomfortably real, especially in its rawest moments as rendered by Carbonell, Love and Victrum."
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
Orlando Shakespeare Theatre
"...was mightily impressed..."his cast does nothing to remind you of the now-iconic performances..." The dramatic tension in each scene is unobtrusively screwed up to the highest possible pitch." -Mr. Terry Teachout, the Journal’s drama critic.
WALL STREET JOURNAL
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD...Orlando Shakespeare Theatre
"...vivid characters coloring Scout’s world:...and loving housekeeper Calpurnia (radiant Sheryl Carbonell)...oh my, what a wonderful cast OST has to bring this all to life..."

For Sheryl Carbonell, Backstage is far more than just a casting service. “I take notes on articles and save them in my ‘acting articles’ folder,” the Florida-based actor says ...... “being creative rather than ‘getting it right.’ ”

BROADWAY WORLD ARTICLE
By BWW News Desk Feb. 10, 2020
Risking scandal and controversy, iconic historical figures-with distinct approaches to facing inequality-grapple with overcoming injustice during a turbulent time in our nation's history. The World Premiere of Deborah Brevoort's bold, new script reveals the real untold story of a true friendship between Jewish-American scientist Albert Einstein and African-American singer Marian Anderson. In 1937, when Anderson is denied a hotel room based on the color of her skin, Einstein invites her to stay in his home. From there, a foreshadowing conversation about racial politics opens up as great minds gather over tea and Swiss chocolate.
