Reviews for past work:
MUCH ADO ABOUT HERO
By Lexi Clare & Amy Le Rossignol
[Maiden Speech Festival & Attenborough Centre Brighton]
"Clare gives a vibrant and beguiling performance filled with pathos.
humour and heart. It's a tour de force performance and an intriguing
exploration of a Shakespearean character often overlooked." Annie Power, London Pub Theatres
"Lexi Clare. the producer, writer and star of this venture is a force to
be reckoned with, and a welcome arrival on the British theatre scene.
It is rare to come across a performer with this much imagination and
ability to make the audience see the very familiar through entirely
new eyes."Julian Eaves, British Theatre.com
CAN'T STOP WON'T STOP
By Kayla Feldman
[Maiden Speech Festival]
"Lexi Clare is also a lovely addition to the cast, with her warm and natural presence bringing an intimate and loving tone to this emotionally exhausting show." Amy Toledano, Within Her Words
By Lexi Clare, Lucy Park & Katie Paterson
[Q Theatre & Tristan Bates Theatre]
"All three are talented singers. Even when at its heaviest, the performers approach their own personal pain with a joyful charm." Ethan Sills, NZ Herald
"Three powerhouses guided the audience through this tumultuous, relatable and gasp-inducing narrative." Steph Hartland, Medium
"Effervescent as they stand before the audience, it is clear that the three young women are passionate about the tales they tell." Sarah Kidd, The 13th Floor
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
By William Shakespeare
[Auckland Summer Shakespeare]
"Vocalist Alexandra Clare, in the character of Balthasar, delivers a swinging rendition of Sigh No More that engagingly captures the mood of the piece and makes Shakespeare's "hey nonny nonny" chorus sound exquisitely cool." NZ Herald
By Jo Randerson
[Auckland Theatre Company]
"Clare’s Beth is sweet, imaginative and conducts a chorus of cows. Yes, you’ll just have to see it." Candice Lewis, Theatreview
"The cast is great and an all-cast cow dance at the start set the absurd tone nicely." Janet McAllister, NZ Herald
"Both were standout performers – Alexandra with a running joke of being a star and a diva, having fun with Chicago’s Roxie." James Wenley, Theatrescenes
