Pride & Prejudice

Jessica Frey is a wonderful Lizzy Bennet. She is staunch and serious and straightforward with every line she utters. She is judgmental and strict about it. Her opinions are hard to alter and her opinion of Mr. Darcy takes a long time to shift into romance. Frey handles that alteration with the aplomb of a fine tailor; small, invisible stitches hold the hem of her gown and the bodice of her true feelings with equal strength. When she ultimately finds herself not settling, but settling into a good romance, it is wonderful to watch her face and her body move into a new, long-anticipated personality.

The Boston Globe

In contrast with the rationality of Elinor, there’s the sensibility of Jessica Frey’s heart-on-her sleeve Marianne, whose laughter, joys, hopes, heartbreak, and tears flow with compelling abandon.

All's Well That Ends Well

& King Lear

Ms. Frey, the excellent Cordelia of ‘Lear’, is even better as Helena [...] To call an actor ‘well spoken’ may sound like overly faint praise, but the superbly articulate Ms. Frey makes every syllable count.

Terry Teachout

The Wall Street Journal

Helena, the smart, striving, wronged center of the action, is appealing played by Jessica Frey, the only woman in the cast.

Twelfth Night

Frey’s Viola, though easily the central character with the least levity, never felt like a burden. Her managing of her situation and conflicts were paired beautifully with eloquent and forceful renderings of Shakespeare’s text.

Frey was an absolute powerhouse in Tabiqua’s big drunken musical number, a big, splashy jazzy number to bring down the house.

The performers reminded me of the cast of Hair [...] Wish I knew their word for ‘Bravo!'
