Suzanne was on the national tour of the comedy SPANK! The Fifty Shades Parody as EB Janet, the wacky writer author of her wine infused erotica fan fiction. Here’s what what the people are said…
“Suzanne Sole, playing the cheap and dirty E.B. Janet, unfolded the story, while her husband, Barry, was away with the kids. Sole was uber-talented. She sold the story better than an agent with a 20 percent cut. Slurping down wine while her fingers glided across the keyboard, she was a marvel of expression, a master of double takes.”
– Bruce Miller / Sioux City Journal
"Janet, a fictionalized version of James played by comically gifted Suzanne Sole. Sole is wonderful throughout.”
– Colin Dabkowski / The Buffalo News
“Sole stole the show. Her portrayal of a housewife determined she could write was hilarious. She trampled the stage in red heels, drank Chardonnay, and interacted with her characters and the audience simultaneously.”
“Sole is the star of the show. As the narrator, she feeds off the crowd’s energy. Her gestures are hysterical!”
– Leah Rocci, Broadway World
"Bringing the comedy, is Suzanne Sole who plays E.B. Janet. Sole is brilliant as the storyteller.”
– Sheri M. Bleuler McKee / NewOrleansLocal.com
Suzanne appeared opposite Patti LuPone in Annie Get Your Gun at Ravinia Festival in Chicago directed by Lonny Price, and Musical Director Paul Gemignani.
“Suzanne was a sultry rival to Annie as Dolly Tate”
— John Olson, Talkin’ Broadway
“Among the outstanding supporting cast were Chicago actors…and adding to the fun, Suzanne Sole as tarty troublemaker Dolly Tate.”
— Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
“Suzanne Sole nearly stole the show as the scheming Dolly Tate”
— Bob Bullen, Chicago Theatre Addict
Suzanne played the role of Muriel Eubanks in the National Tour of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, directed by Phil McKinley, choreographed by Vince Pesce.
“The best moments in the production come from the supporting characters. Suzanne Sole enters picking her teeth, a woman of uncouth, cheery wealth with a pleasing sensuality and a voice that pierces the fog.”
— Lisa Bornstein, Rocky Mountain News
“Suzanne Sole has the chops to sail her character across the orchestra pit.”
— Bill Hirschman, Sun Sentinel, Fort Lauderdale
“This touring company pulls off one electric pairing: Suzanne Sole as Muriel Eubanks, one of Jameson’s victims, and Jeff Essex as Andre Thibault, the local lawman who aids Jameson’s cons. When the two allow a spark of attraction to play out as a full-on sexual conflagration, the afterglow scene becomes a comic gem.”
— Christine Dolen, The Miami Herald
“Suzanne Sole shines in the part of Muriel, a loud-mouthed but hysterical heiress.”
— Alec Harvey, The Birmingham News
