New York Times – “Lonesome Traveler”

“Matty Charles and Sylvie Davidson, as the Canadian duo Ian and Sylvia, somehow make “Early Mornin’ Rain,” the much-covered Gordon Lightfoot song, more achingly beautiful than it’s ever been.”

Broadway World – “I Dig Rock and Roll Music”

“With respect to the abilities of the rest of the band, Sylvie Davidson emerges as the show’s standout performer, charismatic, attractive, and superbly talented. Each of her solo turns mesmerized the audience, beginning with Pete Seeger’s musicalized adaptation of the Book of Ecclesiastes, “Turn! Turn! Turn!” which was turned into a folk-rock hit by the Byrds. Davidson’s version is acoustically performed in a style to which Seeger himself would have nodded his head in admiration, sung with a sweet, bird-like soprano that brings to mind a young Joan Baez. Even more enchanting is her gently wistful rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock,” again choosing a more intimate, acoustic treatment than the folk-rock version by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. When she sings I dreamed I saw the bombers / Riding shotgun in the sky /And they were turning into butterflies / Above our nation, she dwells luxuriously on the word “butterflies” in a way where one would not be surprised if she floated off the stage and out of the theater. When she finished, there was a hush in the audience followed by a burst of applause.”

The Stranger – “The Crucible” 

“Sylvie Davidson plays the hell out of Abigail Washburn.”

“And if some innocent men get scooped up in the process, that injustice lies not at the feet of the accusers but at the feet of an unfair criminal justice system and of a society that’s been so permissive of sexist behavior and sexual predation for so long.  Davidson’s confident, driven, and frankly extremely thirsty Abigail helps us see this. Her false accusations are inexcusable. They lead to the arrest and execution of dozens of citizens and the town’s subsequent economic collapse. But they derive from her understanding of the way power operates in town.”

Broadway World – “Welcome to Braggsville”

“Davidson turns in a particularly raw and visceral performance of a character with whom you may not always agree.”

Atlanta Journal Constitution – “Troubadour”

“Davidson can evoke the haunting lyricism of Emmylou Harris, then with equal aplomb switch gears to exude the flirtatious sexuality of Dolly Parton.”

Broadway World – “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance”

“The only character who surpasses the film’s counterpart is that of Hallie Jackson, the saloon keeper. … Davidson is totally believable in the role, talking coarsely in a dry-as-dust accent, being plain-spoken when she has to, but also capable of being a caring and vulnerable woman who sympathizes with Ransom’s dilemma.”

Seattle PI – “Emma”

“Let me just say this at the outset–Sylvie Davidson is amazing.  She just chews up the scenery in Book-It Repertory Theatre’s presentation of Emma–which will be with us until January 3rd–and if you get a chance, you should definitely check it out–if only for her amazing, glowing performance.  I know I probably sound like a fan-boy–but honestly, after this performance, I really feel as though I could probably watch Ms. Davidson read the phone book–which is not something that I say lightly at all.”

Broadway World – “Tails of Wasps”

“Sylvie Davidson as Becca serves up the fall of the man bite by bite as she shows some amazing duplicity of her character that teases out his true nature.”

LA Times – “King Lear”

“His reunion with wrongfully banished daughter Cordelia (Sylvie Davidson) is heartbreaking in its remorse and forgiveness, the most moving version I’ve seen.”
