THE MUSIC MAN at The Guthrie
"Stacie Bono is everything you'd want in Marian the librarian, sensible, smart, and proud, slowly letting her hair down (figuratively and literally) as she lets this man into her life. And her golden soprano voice will give you chills on such songs as "My White Knight" and "Till There Was You." Danny and Stacie are a charming pair with oodles of chemistry and lovely harmonies."
-Cherry and Spoon
"The entire cast is up to the challenge and perform at the top of their game, lead by the effervescent Stacie Bono (possessed with a lovely voice) as Marian Paroo."
-Carly, Minnesota Theater Love
MY FAIR LADY at Flat Rock Playhouse
"Stacie Bono is a thoroughly modern Eliza, still modest but with a worldly edginess that suits the scrappy young woman who is determined to rise above her caste. Bono is especially effective in striking a distinction between the old Eliza and the new during one of the pivotal scenes in the first act when she finally “gets it,” by George, and slowly then joyously sings “The Rain in Spain,” followed by the romantic “I Could Have Danced All Night.” She proves the power and beauty of her voice throughout the evening."
-Katie Winkler, Blue Ridge Times
THE DREAMER EXAMINES HIS PILLOW at The Old Red Lion
"And Stacie Bono is the star who gets Donna's tough front down. No swooning doll or naïve victim, this is an intelligent young woman painfully aware that the ‘man’ she yearns for doesn’t deserve her affection - ‘You’re the one that is fucked up - why am I the one who’s bleeding?!’ Her imploring gestures and pained expressions make borderline hokey lines as emotive as Shakespearean verse. And Shanley’s script even outdoes Sonnet 129 as Donna fights to explain the transcendental experience which shackles her to Tommy, tragic words poignantly rendered. Her description of an orgasm actually brought tears to my eyes. Unexpected."
-Natanya Paris, Playstosee.com
"Stacie Bono’s strong yet vulnerable Donna is the driving force of the play, pursuing clarity in her life and relationship with such urgency that the audience can’t help but share a stake in her goal."
-Geri Silver, ayoungertheatre.com
"minimalist production is graced by an excellent performance from American actress Stacie Bono who really gives her all"
-Phillip Fisher, British Theater Guide
"Donna (Stacie Bono) delivers a polished performance in her hurt trash doll character on a conflicted emotional journey to understand love and behaviour of men."
-Lucy Gilliam, Run Riot
"Bono is terrific here, effortlessly switching from sassy streetwise broad who mocks the pathetic Tommy... to vulnerable young girl."
-Tony Peters, West End Wilma
"Holding the production together is Stacie Bono’s Donna. She picks out every change in mood in the script, especially in the second half as she learns more and more about her father and is forced to re-evaluate her opinion of him. There’s always a lot going on behind Bono’s eyes, and she deftly handles the emotional shifts of the play."
-Greg Jameson, Entertainment Focus
LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at Infinity Theater
"As ditzy blonde Audrey, Stacie Bono is Nuccio's perfect match. Her longing to flee Skid Row is heartfelt in Bono's singing of Audrey's signature song "Somewhere That's Green"
-Mary Johnson, Baltimore Sun
CHILDREN OF EDEN at Astoria Performing Arts Center
"But the cast is uniformly excellent with Alan Shaw and Stacie Bono as the lovers in Act II taking home the honors. They both have fine voices, act with honest conviction and have that most important ingredient to flesh out a memorable performance - passion. Their duet “In Whatever Time We Have” is just about perfect."
-Oscar E. Moore, oscaremoore.com
"Bono is thrilling as the caring, ever-tentative Yonah"
-Matthew Murray, Broadway Stars
PROMISES, PROMISES at Merry-Go-Round Playhouse
"Bono is very believable as the confused Fran for whom we “pull” throughout, hoping she extricates herself from the clutches of Sheldrake, and finds meaning and a mate more suited to her—somebody like Chuck. Bono demonstrates a strong voice and terrific range in several numbers, as well as her softly-sung “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” duo with Gardner."
-Tony Curulla, Syracuse.com
"Bono is charming and persuasive as the fallen innocent who finally finds her spine."
-Barbara Adams, Ithaca Times
OLIVER! at Gallery Players
"Stacie Bono is a standout as Nancy—you can tell in her interpretations of “It’s a Fine Life” and “As Long as He Needs Me” that the actor understands her subtext and the character sees the irony in the lyrics."
-David Fuller, Indie Theater Now
