REVIEWS

Mama Lilly, Hank Williams: Lost Highway, Gretna Theatre:

"...Williams’ Mama Lilly (Heidi Hayes), who is a lovable bit of comedic relief in a story heavy with substance abuse and the rigors of success."

Pianist, Side By Side By Sondheim, Walnut St. Theatre: 
“The show is a collection of some of his best-and least-know songs, sung by four good voices, accompanied by two good pianists....But the show ends with a very funny medley – even the piano players sing – and you'll exit humming, guaranteed. 
                                           -Toby Zinman, Philadelphia Inquirer

 
 
Pops Concert, Ocean City (NJ) Pops: 
Heidi Hayes manages to wring every nuance from a lyric. Her gestures and facial expressions speak volumes...Later, she broke many a heart in excerpts from Camelot... 

 
Hayes is versatile and makes the jump from grand opera to saloon singer with an aplomb rarely achieved by operatic sopranos. 
                                     -Ed Wismer, Ocean City Sentinel-Ledger
 


Susannah, Tulsa Opera: 
….Hayes....effectively captured the role(s) of....tongue-wagging wive(s). 
                                                           -Ellis Widner, Tulsa Tribune

 
 
Ballad of Baby Doe, Central City (CO) Opera: 
The rest of the cast, particularly....Heidi Hayes....as August Tabor's friend(s), were energetic actor(s) and actress(es) and sang extremely well. 
                                                                   -Blair Chotzinoff, KVOD


 
St. Matthew Passion, Philadelphia Singers: 
Local singers included Soprano Heidi Hayes, who sang not only her own solos but also those of the indisposed Doralene Davis...”  Hayes...sang her arias with a bright well-projected tone and a fine sense of involvement with the text.  She was especially good in the fast passages of Lord, to Thee my Heart is Given. 
 
                                                -Michael Caruso, Main Line Times

 
Hansel and Gretel, Hollybush Opera Theatre (NJ): 
In the Dew Fairy's brief solo, Heidi Hayes sings softly and appealingly. 
                                                          -Robert Baxter, Courier-Post
 


Magic Flute, Pennsylvania Opera Theatre: 
...the three genii, like goofy street urchins, sang their beguiling music in fine ensemble, preserving individual character in unshakeable togetherness. 


                                        -Daniel Webster, Philadelphia Inquirer
