Reviews:
Run the Course: "Out of all the actors, Amy Losi is a standout as Anita, with both the actress and the character taking control as the most dynamic presence...[she] presents herself as a class act and still gains sympathy from the audience." --Jed Ryan, Lavender After Dark Media

Merry Wives: "Amy Losi was a worthy adversary for Falstaff with her cunning portrayal of Mistress Ford." --Jen Bush, Arts Independent

Stillwater: "In a challengingly unsympathetic and unglamorous role, it’s a testament to Amy Losi’s acting ability that she gives a commanding performance even though her character Lettie-May never gets out of bed." -- Jed Ryan, Lavender After Dark Media

The Cover of Life: "Losi as Aunt Ola is marvelously complex as a matriarch who, having already raised a family of boys, now is told she must lead a family of girls while her husband lays dying. She has 46 years of emotions that she has almost never shared, and you can see her boiling, even when she is smiling over homemade cornbread." --StageBuddy

Family Matters: "Losi showed true command of the stage by creating layers of tension and bitterness, unearthing each at prime moments, just like desserts, "unplated." --Amy Frateo, Outerstage
