SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET REVIEW

Riverview Theatre Company

NEWS

"In a word 'Fantastic'.  Riverview Theatre Company is a gem in Northern Illinois.  Their production of 'Sweeney Todd' was a wonderful execution of  songs and drama.....Riverview Theatre Company has in its Cast some magnificent vocal talent of all ages, and covering several cities of origin.  Sweeney Todd is a strange tale at best, in terms of its bizarre plot, and the Riverview Theatre Company has done one of the most tasteful productions we have seen, while still holding on to that strange lust for a close shave....A non-equity production yet with professional results...

Kelli Clevenger, as Mrs. Lovett, was beautiful, witty, a good cook apparently, and a dramatic home run hitter with a beautiful voice.  Victoria Cummings, as the Beggar Woman, did a wonderful rendition of a street urchin with a taste for some coin while traveling down the relaxed road of moral directions...

This a must see show for folks in the area, and we drove nearly one and a half hours for the delight of the day.  
- Ed Vincent, Oak Park Journal

Autozone Commercial Booking


Kelli was cast in a principal role for and AutoZone commercial .  She had a dynamite co-star with whom she battled the frigid temps. Who would have thought shooting a car wash scene outdoors in June would be so cold?! Check out some of the behind the scenes photos in my photo gallery here.

"As author of the book 'Banned in Boston', I was invited to a performance of 'Gypsy' by the Orange Park Theatre and without a doubt, without exaggeration, considering myself an expert on the subject of theatre, burlesque, and vaudeville, I can say emphatically it was the best ever production of 'Gypsy' that I have ever seen...I have seen it at least one dozen times with Rosalind Russell, Ethel Merman, and the PBS version with Bette Midler....Gloria Bennett as Mama Rose combined with Kelli Clevenger as Louise, these women exploded on stage with talent."
-The Florida Times-Union

"Gypsy has a lot going for it...Michelle Nugent (Baby June) and Kelli Clevenger (the grown-up Louise) have wonderful chemistry, especially when they sing the duet, 'When Mama Gets Married.'  Besides playing with grace and elegance the world's most famous stripper, Ms. Clevenger also did an outstanding job as choreographer."
-Entertaining U Newspaper

"Entertainment with a capital 'E' is the best way to describe Orange Park Theatre's latest production, 'Gypsy'...Kelli Clevenger, who doubles as the choreographer for the play, deserves accolades for her remarkable achievements."
-Clay County Line, The Times-Union

"Home" film Booking


Kelli was cast in the lead role for the short film "Home".  The film follows the life of Helen who tries to find a way to start over after her children are grown.  This film is currently in post-production.  Check back again soon for updates or check out my photo gallery here for a closer look on set during production. 

“It is the quietest moments of the play that set this production apart from other productions in the Alhambra’s past.  Shared but silent moments between characters Scrooge and Belle (played by Kelli Clevenger) - these are the ‘extras’ that add an intangible novelty to a well-worn Christmas story.”
-The Recorder


“Equally impressive is Kelli Clevenger in a cameo role as Belle, who sings a moving ‘Better Than Then’.”
- Dick Kerekes & Leisla Sanson, Entertaining U Jacksonville

Ouroboros Theatre & Big Noise Theatre

“The passion and the confilct that happened between Maureen and Joanne (Kelli Clevenger) were well balanced....The combination of vocals and acting ability made them stand out.”
- Steadstyle Chicago



"This was an outstanding production of "Rent." I saw this play when it played at the Schubert Theatre and feel that these outstanding performers were every bit as good as the professionals I saw then. In fact, the best part about this production of "Rent" were the wonderful performers, thrilling voices and beautifully executed dance numbers."

"Kuddos to Joanne (Kelli Clevenger) and Maureen --good performances and great voices."

"The show was amazing. The cast and crew are to be commended! I was crying right along with the cast at the end!"

"Wow- I saw Rent originally in London and I am being totally honest in stating this this was actually better than the London cast. The voices, acting, everything was incredible."

"I can honestly say that I've never been disappointed by any production that has been recommended by Goldstar, and "Rent" was no exception. The actors all performed brilliantly, and effectively brought me to tears in all the right places...I think this cast sounded better than the original. If "Big Noise" makes a recording of their production of "Rent" I want it!...Bottom line, this is a MUST SEE! 

"This show was excellent! The girls have amazing voices."
- Goldstar
