"In Shana Farr’s excellent Julie Andrews tribute, she sang in a compatible soprano without trying to look or sound like Ms. Andrews...an appropriate role model for an opera-pop hybrid.” – Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal


“Best of all was Shana Farr as the strolling singer Elsie.  A last-minute replacement in the leading role, this beautiful, young performer delivered a polished and vocally radiant turn that garnered flowers and hugs from the visibly relieved director/conductor.” – Frank Scheck, The New York Post, The Yeomen of the Guard, New York City Center


"Shana Farr's stirring performance at the Patriotic Pops concert garnered a standing ovation from a record breaking audience of 1,000 cheering fans... Her voice has a power that stunned the unsuspecting audience." –Bill Clark, Columbia Daily Tribune, The Missouri Symphony

“Something’s amiss when the understudy steals the show.  So it was with Shana Farr as Elsie of New York Gilbert & Sullivan’s Production of The Yeomen of the Guard at New York City Center.  Her crystalline soprano and lively stage presence woke up the drowsy proceedings…Rounded acting and singing performances were given by…of course, understudy Farr.” – David A. Rosenberg, Backstage, The Yeomen of the Guard, New York City Center


"Shana Farr has elegance, style and does a hilarious rendition of “Legs"... In her duet with Mark Campbell, “Adultery Waltz"/"Divorce Lament,” when she proclaims “I think I am falling in love/What a day for infidelity,” her comedic skills, crystal clear voice and powerful emotional range, along with the winning Campbell, rules the room." - Lynda Sturner, Nightlife Exchange, Take Me Home Tonight

"The pros were nuanced and secure with their technique. Shana Farr was a perfect example of the latter- statuesque, cool, and beautiful. She grabbed your attention immediately and did not let it go. She used her head voice to great effect, bringing something brand new to each song – even to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." (Arlen/Harburg) Who knew that was even possible?? She made it look effortless." - Mona Finston, Cabaret Hotline Online, Cookie's Corner



"The most talented, Shana Farr, is not only tall, blond and beautiful but has a voice to match. She reached the high notes in “Pure Imagination” and presented a passionate rendition of “Over The Rainbow.”  New York City school kids will recognize “Go Ahead and Dream,” her song from an educational film against bullying." - Karen Feld, Times Square Chronicles, Cookie's Corner



“Shana Farr took what might have been maudlin material, the theme from “Somewhere in Time,” certainly a beautiful melody, and enriched it with her gorgeous soprano.  It was a clear-eyed view of gooey material and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.” – Suzanna Bowling, Times Square Chronicles, Hidden Treasures of Larry Kerchner, The York Theatre

"Shana Farr is a most talented and lovely actress with a crystal clear voice that sits right on top of the notes and an attractive sensibility that allows her to deliver the lyrics with wit and warmth and intelligence. She made a perfect Laurey, and I have no doubt that Rodgers and Hammerstein themselves would have enjoyed working with this bright young star." – Bruce Pomahac, Director of Music, Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, Oklahoma!
