“Dazzling audiences with her talent, energy, sincerity and humor… a perfectly crafted cabaret that sent the audience into a frenzy.”
“Kicking off with ‘Beautiful’ (Carole King) the husky, sexy, rich mezzo of this rock goddess of the stage, Jessica Vosk, launched the programme, and the series, with a confident flourish…this Jewish-Polish singing actress is the epitome of what American musical theatre is all about. Listen to her sing the Gershwin’s, ‘Someone To Watch Over Me’, and you’ll find out: technique here is all that it should be, could be, but it never – ever – gets to upstage the story, mood or sentiment. As ever, key here is the endlessly varied colouring of the vowel sounds, where the emotional expression is at its most compelling – from the purest, most exquisitely supported, most glowingly round tones, through little catches of vibrato and in and out of almost dangerously exposed diphthongs.”
“However, despite the strength of the rest of the cast, the foremost reason to see this production is Vosk…Her performance as Elphaba is layered, heartfelt, and funny, and, even though I’ve seen the show twice before, Vosk brought to life smaller character moments that I’ve never noticed in previous viewings.
However, as is likely true with all Elphabas, actresses in the legendary green role are mostly measured by their voices, and with all due respect to Idina Menzel, Shoshana Bean, Stephanie J. Block, Dee Roscioli, Jackie Burns, Lindsay Mendez, et al., Vosk just might be the best of all.”

“Her powerhouse and pristine vocals aside, the true achievement here is Vosk’s ability to switch musical genres effortlessly, engaging each song with a new vocal attack that is completely truthful to its musical style.”
“Jessica Vosk, as the ghost of Lazar Wolf’s first wife, Fruma-Sarah, is a knockout, making a magnificent entrance…”
