Notes

REVIEWS American Beauty Shop "fine performances...particularly Amanda Stephens Lee who gives a powerful performance as Sue, carrying the bulk of the play’s tension in her character." - lisathatcher.com "In the all female cast, Amanda Stephens Lee’s performance as Sue is a stand out. In a sea of periwinkles it’s nice to uncover an oyster. She delivers her role with the right amount of underlying anger and steeliness. A woman who has endured extenuating circumstances in the past and will, as it happens, continue to do so." - Emma Bedford, Artshub Leaves (Nominated for Best Actress Award www.broadwayworld.com Theatre Awards for Sydney) "A strong cast provides the show with a cohesive and unique flavour (too rich and ephemeral to put to words), with each actor compelling in their respective parts." Suzygoessee.com Four Places "Stephens Lee is excellent as the brittle Ellen." - Jason Blake SMH "And what Lee can do with an eyebrow, or a slight curl of her upper lip, many actor can’t do with their whole body, or a soliloquy" Lloyd Bradford Syke, Syke on Stage "The entire cast put in strong performances; an impressive haul considering the intimacy of the space and writing. Amanda Stephens Lee plays Peggy’s daughter, Ellen. Lee plays the frazzled mediator well, and litters her performance with wonderful moments of vulnerability whilst making sudden moments of tranquility believable." Dinner and a Show Blog "Amanda Stephens Lee and Jeremy Waters are super as the siblings on simmer", Sydney Arts Guide "this tale is well delivered by four excellent actors, [including] the powerful Amanda Stephens-Lee" StageWhispers On the Shore of the Wide World "The cast rise to the writing, with several exceptional performances: ......AmandaStephens-Lee is equal parts power and despair" Five Stars - Time Out "Amanda Stephens-Lee is exquisite as Alice, fierce, fragile, and funny" - Sydney Arts Guide "Huw Higginson and Amanda Stephens-Lee are outstanding as the middle generation of the Holmes family: tender and heart-rending in their different predicaments.... It should be said that there isn't a weak link in the cast - it's a company of fine actors all working at the top of their game." - Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise Beautiful Thing "Amanda Stephens Lee is on the money as Jamie's sharp-tongued barmaid mum, Sandra." - Jason Blake, SMH "Lee brings out all of these facets and balances them as beautifully as her young male counterparts" - Lloyd Bradford Skye, Crikey "Young Jamie's mum, Sandra (Amanda Stephens Lee) in her battle to survive and provide, leads with a heart and, finally, head full of optimism and unconditional love. Ms Lee relishes the opportunity of the role, the quick one-line zingers and the humanity of the woman is given a delicious, fully fleshed drawing" Kevin Jackson KJ Theatre Diary
