"Subtly modulated yet tremendously forceful, the prodigious Ms. Campbell manages to be both melting and shattering".
JOHN SIMON - Bloomberg
"In Ms. Campbell, 'Tryst' has found it's perfect Adelaide. There are layers within layers in her brilliant performance"
JOY GOODMAN - NY Sun
"Amelia Campbell is outstanding."
JOHN LAHR - The New Yorker
DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS
"It's Campbell's driven Abbie that is the revelation. Her dirt-poor, deep seeded hunger for a home is breathtaking in it's fearlessness and her not so silent rage. Amazingly she manages to make this very desperate housewife not only sympathetic, but understandable."
FRANK RIZZO - Variety
"Amelia Campbell is electric."
SANDY MACDONALT - Theatermania.com
"And the remarkable Campbell, a pint sized whirlwind with the savagery of a small animal, conveys her underprivileged characters not-too-savvy naked need..."
CAROLYN CLAY - Boston Pheonix
THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA
"Amelia Campbell is a sublime Hannah. It's extraordinary how she enters and immediately suggests both the New England spinster and the angel of mercy ... Campbell makes Williams' intriguing character continually fascinating and real."
RALPH HAMMAN - The Advocate Weekly
"But Campbell is the star of the show. [Her] genius lies in the way she doesn't let on just how much Jelkes has fooled herself."
MICHAEL ECK - Special to the Times Union
"But beneath the ethereal smiles, optimism and perseverance, she - like Shannon - is a fragile creature of immense humanity and sensitivity. The struggle with her own demons is fully realized in her second-act verbal duel and communion with Shannon, and both actors perform this scene of absolution with exquisite intelligence and tenderness."
FRANK RIZZO - Variety.com
"... with the sweetie-tough actor, Amelia Campbell showing us the humor and vulnerability of the real-life Janis, this show builds and builds toward the warm embrace of the public figure and the private woman ... (so generous are the performances in this West coast premiere staging that the actor/singer hug takes us all in)."
ANNE MARIE WELSH - San Diego Union Tribune
THE FALL TO EARTH
"Amelia Campbell as Terry the cop is terrific. Campbell plays the skittish and unsure cop with aplomb. Campbell has an extremely mobile face, and is able to move through a series of complex emotions and insecurities while standing completely still."
