The Taming, Coho Productions
Crackling with agile delivery by the actors, the quips come quickly – if not at the speed of light, at least the speed of “Veep.” Cast members attack their roles with the ferocious endurance of pesky Oregon pot petitioners in the 1990s.
– Lee Williams, The Oregonian
In the Next Room, or the vibrator play , Profile Theatre
…to see Lauren Bloom play (Catherine) with a mix of adult anxiety and incurable, almost adolescent curiosity, it’s realism at its best. There’s a pathos to her struggle to be seen and understood.
– Megan Burbank, Portland Mercury
It’s a good, well-balanced cast, sparked by Bloom’s nervous drive of curiosity.
– Bob Hicks, Oregon Artswatch
Mauritius, Capital Stage
The cast is superb throughout, with each actor etching a memorable character who may or may not have our sympathy.
– Marcus Crowder, Sacramento Bee
This cast is the best local ensemble in recent memory. Most are new to Capital Stage and all work as a talented, cohesive cast.
-Patti Roberts, Sacramento News & Review
Twelfth Night, Alabama Shakespeare Festival
But it is the women who provide the most subtle and complete characterizations of the roles of Viola and Olivia in recent memory. Bloom is believable both as the boy Cesario and as the lady Viola beneath the disguise. There is ample reason for Orsino and Olivia to fall in love with him/her…..When these two take the stage, we are mesmerized.
– Michael P. Howley, The Montgomery Advertiser
As You Like It, Alabama Shakespeare Festival
….Lauren Bloom provid(es) charming support as Celia.
– Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal
Three Sisters, Alabama Shakespeare Festival
As eldest sister Olga, Lauren Bloom derives strength from the simple and uncluttered depiction of a woman who can hope despite many disappointments, and gives probably the single most complete and compelling performance.
