"Teri Reeves, managing director of L.A.-based Chalk Repertory Theatre, is splendid in her quadruple roles as Charlie’s three former lovers and one anonymous come-hither blonde."
“The stunning Reeves nails the plum assignment of brining to diverse life four different women, with special snaps for her diametrically opposed Joanna (smoldering sultriness personified) and Kelly (quiet, troubled, and touching)...” http://www.stagescenela.com/2015/06/the-trouble-we-come-from
“Teri Reeves in a tour de force performance plays all the crazy, but irresistible women from Charlie’s past. She shifts with ease from Joanna, Samantha, Kelly and The Blond, making each character distinct and memorable.” http://www.examiner.com/review/funny-with-a-dash-of-dark-the-trouble-we-come-from-is-a-hit
“The amazing performances by Teri Reeves as four completely different women is noteworthy because even though we know from the program that Joanna, Samantha, The Blonde and Kelly are all played by Ms Reeves, her approach and delivery for each one is sexy and believable. No stereotypes for her. Her Kelly is especially moving.” onstagelosangeles.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-trouble-we-come-from-at-falcon.html
“As hard as it is to steal/grab focus from these two best buds (Caan and Weston's repartee's so smooth, so realistically believable), Teri Reeves manages to do just that each time she's on stage. First, as the former girlfriend Joanna, a firecracker hot Cuban bombshell (with the accent to match); Reeves' hysterical vamping as she seduces Charlie absolutely slays while raising the collective temperature of the room. With the aid of disguising wigs and totally different body language, Reeves re-enters the stage three more times as three totally different women -- two other past girlfriends, Samantha and Kelly and a possible blonde quickie. Bravo to Mz. Reeves for her versatility in creating such distinct and different women, with her Kelly being the most raw and soul-baring from her repertoire of characters.” http://www.broadwayworld.com/los-angeles/article/BWW-Reviews-Definitely-No-Trouble-Enjoying-Scott-Caans-THE-TROUBLE-WE-COME-FROM-20150613#June
“Teri Reeves plays all four of Charlie’s colorful ex girlfriends, and an amazing job she does too, with characters ranging from homicidely sexual to gentle and heartbroken, she metamorphosed transcendentally...” http://nohoartsdistrict.com/theatres/theatre-reviews/item/2977-theatre-review-the-trouble-we-come-from-the-falcon-theatre
