“Running in Place” (read the full review)

“Sassy, touching, intelligent, beautifully gowned, she simply conquered the stage.”

“… doesn’t take herself too seriously while exhibiting perfect comic timing and a touch of sexiness.”

“And oh, does she know how to build a number…transforms from saucy to sizzling…an emotional payoff with the skill and confidence of a Judy Garland or Barbra Streisand.”

– Bart Greenberg, May 23, 2018

“Running in Place”

Rein makes it clear she’s totally in command of where she has long wanted to be…offers a carefully chosen baker’s dozen numbers that are every bit as wide-ranging in content and style as her astonishingly supple voice and myriad lyric interpretations…Long may she wave.

– Richard Windeler, May 6, 2018

Her sumptuous alto and her intelligent, perceptive, and expressive interpretations would be enough to make this show exceptional. But there’s something else: a strong emotional undercurrent—never overstated or obvious, but nonetheless palpable and powerful—that ultimately transforms this uncommonly fine hour of cabaret into a deeply moving experience.

– Roy Sander, Associate Producer of the Bistro Awards

“Running in Place”

Sierra’s Show is an amazing journey and she takes you right along with her every step of the way! I laughed and I cried. She is a terrific singer and actress. She has full command and understanding of every moment.

“Broadway By The Letter: Act One” (read the full review)

“…beautiful brunette Sierra Rein–voluptuous in both voice and body–zeroed in on the Mark Shaiman/Scott Wittman song “They Just Keep Moving the Line,” and belted it out of the park like Joe DiMaggio would a baseball in his prime.” – Stephen Hanks, October 23, 2013

“…Sierra Rein’s performance as Ruth, one of the professional bridesmaids. Ruth (also the name of the patient she plays) keeps her puppet Matilda with her at all times, singing and communicating through it exclusively. It’s so completely part of her that there is a moment toward the end of the play when you realize how artificial that unity is. The moment has the effect of watching a magic trick performed, with awe and heartwarming wonder.” – Rob Staeger, April 2009

“Ruddigore” – (read the full review)

“Fuller has adapted the piece by adding a framing device that places this performance in a Maine mental hospital—the staff and a few of the patients are the players in the operetta-within-the-show. This set-up, if not absolutely necessary, adds a layer of lighthearted whimsy and allows for some playful gags, the best of which is the use of a puppet (Matilda) as one of the professional bridesmaids. Sierra Rein “plays” Matilda and she is superb—if G&S can’t encompass Avenue Q-style theatricks, then who can?” – Martin Denton, April 27, 2009

“Master Class” – Beverly Press (read the full review)

Sierra Rein…enters with not only a full-out formal ball gown to class, but with some emotional baggage to boot…All three young actor/singers have marvelous voices and bring with them three separate personalities, and the sparkle of students with eyes on the prize. They do terrific work.” – Dave Depino, June 24, 2004

Marquee Five – “8-Track Throwback” (read the full review)
“When I say Janis Joplin, I’m sure the first person to come to mind is Sierra Rein, right? Here’s this beautiful, classy looking woman rasping out to Joplin’s Move Over in a jaw dropping performance that made me look at Sierra in a whole new light. The audience went wild for this number.” – Sue Matsuki, October 4, 2010

Mark Janas’ The Salon (read the full review)
…every single time she steps on a stage, she blows me away. I am speaking of Miss Sierra Rein who sang…in what was a pure, operatic/theatrical voice and performance worthy of a Tony. When I first met Sierra, she was performing with a puppet. Then I heard her do the “Only Make Believe” duet from Oklahoma with another wonderful singer at Salon and THEN, I was shocked to hear her wailing our a Janis Joplin tune in the latest Marquee Five show. This girl can literally sing anything.” – Sue Matsuki, October 28, 2010

“Lilith, The Rock Opera” – (read the full review)

“In the title role, Sierra Rein gives a dynamic performance as the lusty, enraged seductress…she does not appear until near the end of the first disc (but she sure knows how to make an entrance – her solo is a tour de force).” – Rob Lester, February 23, 2006
