CARLY CALLAHAN, MEZZO - SOPRANO
"If ever an actress was born to play the desperate, egotistical Opera House diva Carlotta, it is Carly Callahan. She is every inch the Carlotta that Rosemary Ashe was in the original London West End production of "The Phantom of the Opera" and she far surpasses the tantalizing performance of Judy Kaye in the original Broadway production of the same musical. Here, she dazzles, cajoles, taunts and surprises as a woman so desperate for attention and star power, she will do anything to see her name up in lights. But she does it so cunningly, you can't help but applaud and enjoy her dastardly deeds even when it's "lights out" for Carlotta in the middle of Act II."
- From the Desk of Jim R. - Jim Ruocco
"Carly Callahan nearly steals the show with her appropriately scenery-chewing antics and her driving rendition of 'This Place Is Mine'."
- Talkin' Broadway - Zander Opper
"Talented actress Carly Callahan is excellent at deliberately portraying Carlotta in an off-putting bossy and self-aggrandizing manner."
