Don’t Ask the Lady...! starring the inimitable Julie Ross, is one of the best one-woman musical shows to be seen London this year, and should not be missed.’   

Don’t Ask the Lady…!                                                          UK Theatre Network

‘…a clever, witty cabaret packed with show-stopping, foot-tapping and heart-warming songs... This is an evening and a personality to remember.’ *****

Don’t Ask the Lady…!                                                     remotegoat.com

 

‘There are far too many wonderful moments to mention in one review. As well as having superb vocals… she is also an established versatile actress. Ross had the audience in stitches. I laughed like a loon as she mimicked a crazed Kate Bush warbling Wuthering Heights… [while] her depth of delivery in My Brother Lived In San Francisco brought a genuine tear to my eye. An irrefutable and inspiring talent. *****

‘Ross is as fine an actress as she is a vocalist.  She doesn’t just sing, she interprets. I have always loved the melody of Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now but never quite understood the lyric. But in the hands of Ross’s heartfelt vocals that seem to reflect life experience, the meaning became clear, and it brought tears to my eyes.’

‘…under the stern, watchful eye of the Matron - superbly performed by Julie Ross.’

Be My Baby                                                                    Filskit Theatre (Victoria Dyson)

 

Julie Ross gave a wonderfully drunken rendition of "Ladies Who Lunch" during which I almost believed the glass of water in her hand contained neat gin instead. (Perhaps it did!)

Sondheim By Sondheim                                               remotegoat.com

 

For me, Julie Ross’s Phyllis was near definitive: resigned, but resenting her ‘bargain with life’, her every expression, every inflection spoke volumes. And her “Could I Leave You” was impeccably crafted.

Follies                                                                            thepublicreviews.com

 

The fourth member of the quartet is Julie Ross, an actress who combines the comic timing of Joan Rivers with the looks of Bernadette Peters.

‘...yet it is Julie Ross as Phyllis ... who dominate(s) the production. Ross’s brittle assumed rigidity, her tremendous poise and restraint inhabit the role with fearsome precision...

Follies                                                                            ayoungertheatre.com

 

Julie Ross is thoroughly absorbing as Phyllis …’

Follies                                                                             The Stage

 

‘…the lovely Julie Ross, who can explore and find additional meaning and humour in everything.’

Julie Ross plays the Italian mamma to perfection...’

There is strong support from ... Julie Ross as the loud, proud parent[s]...

My Big Gay Italian Wedding                                             The Stage

 

Julie Ross as Angela, plays the overbearing Italian mother with great gusto, fanning her nether regions and voicing her endless worries.’

Julie Ross … gives depth to her role as the mother.’

‘Julie Ross, who plays the gay guy’s Mom … brought some touching moments to the
character[s].’

‘It was the support of a stronger female cast that lifted the production: Julie Ross struck a believable mother figure…’

Sleeping With Straight Men                                            ayoungertheatre.com

 

Older Belle (Julie Ross) narrates the life of Young Belle and she is played with a Norma Desmond hauteur both touching and funny. Ross has her Ethel Merman moments and her onstage meeting with Young Belle adds a much needed poignancy to the lunacy.’

Little Me                                                                             Musical Theatre Review

 

‘…touchingly portrayed’

Little Me                                                                             Last Minute Theatre

 

‘Ross as the interfering mother Grace rounds off the cast nicely as what could be a one-note character is revealed as much more complex. She shows Grace floundering in a situation that she just cannot understand but desperately wants to, clinging onto her son as the one possibly good thing left in her life.’
