"Abigail is a wonderful and funny actress."
    
---James Burrows
 

CRUMBS FROM THE TABLE OF JOY, Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse

"In the minutes leading up to the intermission, there arrives a new character who, were this reviewer to describe her, would constitute a spoiler of unforgivable proportions. Let us just say that Abigail Rose Solomon plays this role with a quiet dignity that spares the character what would otherwise be the role of complete nemesis.”
 ---MV Times

--- Wicked Local

"The words are handled with unusual clarity by the well-trained and talented young cast.... Solomon's foolish knight Sir Andrew Aguecheek completes the comic cast. Solomon is quite charming and a little pitiful as the cowardly, clueless dupe."
--- Cape Cop Online

     --- BACK STAGE WEST

"A strong cast takes us on an in-depth journey of the mind and heart...Abigail Rose Solomon gives a captivating performance as Catherine. Capable of great range and dimension, I believed, and felt her plight. Greg Mullavey, as her gifted father...is fearlessly flawless, and the scenes shared between the two are theatrical magic!"
     --- THE TOLUCAN TIMES

"A splendid, deeply affecting Abigail Rose Solomon...Solomon is the lovely waif in dubious charge of the situation, feeling but unsentimental, down-to-earth when she needs to be, but pulsatingly sad at soul's level, demanding not pity but understanding."
     --- PARK LA BREA NEWS/BEVERLY PRESS

"Abigail Rose Solomon, in the lead role of the gifted mathematician’s younger daughter, Catherine, holds the stage throughout most of the show, and offers a solid performance as a young girl and maturing woman who suffers more than the usual doubt and angst as she struggles to find her place in the world....What really makes it worthwhile as an evening’s entertainment is the company’s deft handling of the author’s sparkling dialogue, which reveals a storm of emotions and a whirlwind of conflicting desires within each of the four characters....Ms. Solomon’s company, Rosalind Productions, aims to produce plays with vital, complex, and influential women characters, and it has certainly hit that target here."
