The Talbot Spy

“O Holy Night,” just about brought the full house at the Avalon down...

 

Galloway brought both reverence and inspiration to the lyrics and their echoes in what believers and non-believers alike have heard and recited most of their lives.

 

Through all three verses, she calibrated her soaring lyric soprano voice to enable a thrilling culmination.

Holiday Joy, Mid-Atlantic Symphony, Avalon Theater, Easton, MD, 2023

Baltimore Independent Theatre Review

Dinah, played by Claire Galloway Weber, is also an outstanding songbird soprano who holds her own against Tomaszewski. Her pain is palpable, and her courage to try and find help seems a thin veiled reflection on deflection. She has her own splendid funny moment performing 'Island Magic,' while flouncing between a disgusted movie patron and a back up dancer for the Polynesian Dance Troupe.

Trouble in Tahiti, Stillpointe Theatre, Baltimore, MD

Theatre Bloom

Mike Zellhofer

Galloway Weber's clear, dulcet voice draws you into her struggle between having the perfect looking suburban home and what appears to be an alluring marriage, and the desire for a relationship with the man she loves. She conveys this perfectly in her scene with her psychiatrist and as she recounts her viewing of the South Sea romance Trouble in Tahiti.
