Madwomen's Late Nite Cabaret

"Julie Lyn Barber embodies women as diverse as Typhoid Mary, Amelia Earhart, and Mary Stuart but she really stands out as Sybil singing “I Am My Own Best Friend”. (Wendy Carlson, Plays with John and Wendy, August 23, 2019)

Cabaret Poe

"From the beginning to the finale, the show's performers were polished, talented and oozing with the correct amount of Gothic charm so necessary in a production of this type...Bottom Line: Beg, borrow - steal from your kid's Christmas account if necessary - but do what you must to get the money and go se Cabaret Poe." (Elizabeth Musgrave, @GottaGo, Oct. 7, 2015)

Who Run the World?

“Julie Lyn Barber is clearly a highly gifted artist. Indeed, her portrayal of various influential female leaders from history—including Cleopatra, Indira Gandhi, Margaret Thatcher, and Hillary herself—displays an extraordinary accent range as well as obvious singing prowess.” (Laurence Brown, Nuvo, August 18, 2015)

Amherst Early Music Festival

Purcell's The Fairy Queen

Gary Thor Wedow led the 22-piece orchestra with panache....The solo vocal numbers, choruses, and instrumental pieces (hornpipes, dances, chaconne, etc.) were nimbly executed.  Notable among the principal singers were soprano Julie Lyn Barber (Titania), countertenor Justin Schuetz (Oberon), countertenor Geoffrey Silver (Secrecy), and bass Michael Hix (Drunken Poet and Coridon). (John Deredita, July 14, 2013)

Menagerie Macabre

...Barber's singing is spectacular. (Ethel Winslow, The Weekly View, August 22, 2013)

Also exceptional in this story and the other two is Barber in her role as the ugly and decrepit Gypsy Hag, who serves as the Narrator. (The Examiner, August 22, 2013)
