Press

“As when she stopped the show during March's Chicago Cabaret Convention ... audiences can always count on Suzanne Petri to entertain with style and artistry."  Jeff Rossen, Cabaret Scenes

"Suzanne Petri has established herself as an actress who can handle classy and brassy with equal ease. Her gritty voice, crisp and witty delivery, and assured stage presence also suit her to musical theater of a certain high style."  Albert Williams, The Chicago Reader

“Ms. Petri proves that she is not only a top notch interpreter of lyrics, but one of the best actresses in Chicago” Cabaret Hotline.  

"Particularly outstanding... the scintillating Petri, whose throaty voice and marvelous acting worked to perfection” Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
