"Sharon Sharth's astonishing performance... [is a] true tour de force star turn. On stage for almost the entire evening, she is emotionally 'naked'... Her high-octane, intense, and highly nuanced performance drains her and the audience as well. It's a mesmerizing evening of theatre."                       --Desert Local News

 

"The play deftly transitions from comedy to tragedy thanks to the emotional navigation skills of Sharon Sharth as Martin's wife, Stevie."     --The Desert Sun

 

"Stevie, played by fascinating actress Sharon Sharth, reacts on several levels... THE GOAT offers moments that will live in the memory forever, [including] a real redheaded temper tantrum. [Sharth] ... face bare of makeup, flushes red before our eyes when freaked out - something usually only found in close-ups in the movies... There are screams that would strip the vocal cords of us ordinary mortals. We sit humbly at ringside, being allowed to watch life-changing events take place before us. The audience rewarded this work with silent and spellbound attention..."                                                               --CV Independent

 

"As Stevie Gray, Sharon Sharth has the showiest role and makes absolutely the most out of it. Every moment, whether cracking a joke, expressing shock or unleashing anger caused by her feelings of betrayal and disgust, is an honest and believable one. He pain becomes our pain as she tries so desperately to comprehend the why of her husband's actions."                      --Gay Desert Guide
