PLAY REVIEW /// ‘Sweet Charity’ by Cary Ginell ~ Camarillo Acorn Aug. 23, 2019
"Briana Bauer does a terrific job as Charity. In a red dress and tousled wig she bears more than a passing resemblance to Gwen Verdon, who created the role on Broadway.
Charity is on stage for nearly the entire show, and Bauer knows her well: a soft touch who is also a little soft in the head. Bauer’s fluid, limber dancing skills and endearing facial expressions tell you all you need to know about Charity’s eager, sweetly naive personality."

"Briana Bauer, in reality a skilled dancer, does a magnificent job executing Essie’s clumsy moves in a delightfully ditzy way that is ingratiatingly adorable. Every move she makes is an attempt at being graceful, even when she elegantly cloaks dipsomaniac actress Gay Wellington..."

"Briana is beauty in motion with extraordinary dancing skills that move us to our core. You simply can't take your eyes off her as her dance drives much of the emotion and passion of our West Side Story production. Briana is going to do amazing things in her career and we look forward to seeing where she goes from here!"
