People are talking. Here’s what they’re saying.

Taylor is up there with Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett!
— John F. Sarno (Chariot of Fairies, Nylon Fusion)
Taylor Graves’ performance as Alma is superb. She shows the affectations of the young woman without being an affected actress. After Alma discovers her sensuality, Ms. Graves makes a subtle adjustment. She shows us the change in Alma’s inner life without losing the spine of the character.
— New York Critic, Steve Capra (Summer and Smoke)
Graves is particularly commendable as the heart-broken, wistful, and refined lady who later attempts to become a tramp. Though Alma’s behavior is constricted, Graves plays Alma with a fortitude that is admirable. There is also such a boldness and piercing honesty in her Alma when she declares her love for him.
— Theatre Is Easy, Cindy Pierre (Summer and Smoke)
Ms. Graves gives Theresa such a radiant smile and personal warmth that it is easy to see why she effortlessly attracts men.
— The New York Times (Circle Mirror Transformation)
Taylor Graves (Theresa) has escaped to be closer to her father and away from a failed relationship. She’s peppy but narcissistic, shrewdly portraying her moth drawn to every brighter light.
— Broadway World (Circle Mirror Transformation)
Kelly D. Cooper and Taylor Graves make a great comic double act as a blustering Prospero and vapidly teenaged Miranda.
— Culture Catch, Leah Richards (Sycorax Cyber Queen of Qamara)
Taylor Graves turns in a solid performance as Lady Macduff.
— Theater Scene, Nicholas Linnehan (Macbeth)
