Backstage

 

The evening's asset is singer Valerie diLorenzo...with a robust voice and presence and a life-embracing spirit, when she sings a song, it has done been sung...

Bistro Awards

 

Nostalgia reigned supreme, and deserving of a big hand is Valerie diLorenzo, glowing and on the same page from the past…she knows how to sell a song and bring a whole lot of smiles.  

Cabaret Scenes

 

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

“…the true standout in this cast is diLorenzo, who has an amazing singing voice…

Sag Harbor Express

 

“The lead and absolute standout performer of the show, Valerie diLorenzo plays Miss Mona Stangley with such poise and professionalism she could easily be selling fine chastity belts instead of, well, you know. The powerhouse singer also knows when to rein it in, specifically in her showstopping song, “I Will Always Love You.” As it has been sung by icons...expectations were high...but the tears rolling down this reviewer’s face at the end proved that Ms. diLorenzo did it more than justice.”

Southampton Press

Bloodbrothers

From the opening scene to the final curtain call, the audience for "Blood Brothers" was mesmerized by New York actress, Valerie diLorenzo, who truly shines in her role as Mrs. Johnstone. When she takes the stage, she takes the stage. Her presence captivates the audience and she adds warmth and passion to her role…a compelling theatre experience.

The Baltimore Sun Times

Annie

“...Annie can only help you escape your troubles for two hours, with a solid cast featuring...diLorenzo is wonderfully comic as the slatternly Miss Hannigan. She delivers a showstopping, believable version of 'Little Girls.’

The Morning Call

 

 

Gypsy

"Any production of Gypsy doesn't stand a chance with a strong Mama Rose, and here, brassy Valerie diLorenzo is definitely a strong presence. She badgers, cajoles, pushes and, perhaps, most important, belts out her songs with gusto."

The Baltimore Sun Times

Oliver!

"Virtually every scene had a happy combination of gusto and sensitivity… As Nancy, Sykes' hopelessly loyal main squeeze, Valerie diLorenzo was a wonder."

The Allentown Morning Call

A Comedy of Errors

"Valerie diLorenzo, who plays both Solinus as well as a hilarious courtesan, is a strong actors who understand what she’s doing." 

The Journal News

 

And Call Me In The Morning

"Valerie diLorenzo gives an enlivening no-nonsense, no-dummy cameo performance and walks off with the acting honors of the occasion."

The New York Times

Company

"In Sondheim's Company, Valerie diLorenzo finds the essence of a street-smart gal who is appropriately tough, especially in her solo, "Another Hundred People," which she delivers with precise articulation, phrasing and power."

The Journal News

 

And The World Goes Round

"Valerie diLorenzo feeds the mind's eye gloriously…and clearly stands out. Her songs are all full of energy."

The Killington Times
