“Dazzling audiences with her talent, energy, sincerity and humor… a perfectly crafted cabaret that sent the audience into a frenzy.”
“A powerhouse singer (considered by some to be the finest Elphaba that Wicked ever had), Vosk possesses the kind of extraordinary vocal control and flexibility that allowed her to do full justice to songs by Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, Stevie Nicks and Cass Elliott—a feat I doubt any other current singer could accomplish this well…when Vosk’s voice filled Kaufmann Concert Hall, it was impossible not to be completely enveloped in its rich sound while thoughts of anything but the song being performed vanished from one’s head. To paraphrase Joni Mitchell, Jessica, I could drink a case of you and still stay in my seat.”
“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 Narrator has one of the most pure and sublime voices to grace any stage. This role is a heavy lift and she masterfully tells the majority of story with charm, style and panache. You cannot take your eyes off her when she is on stage.”
Broadway World (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Review)
“Jessica Vosk, as the ghost of Lazar Wolf’s first wife, Fruma-Sarah, is a knockout, making a magnificent entrance…”
“A wow-inducing show filled with whip smart, laugh-out-loud humor, fun personal stories, and some of the most stunning vocal riffs I’ve heard sung live, Ms. Vosk’s rapturous 90-minute-plus set proves in person why she has deservedly become one of the stage’s favorite musical theater divas.”
Broadway World (Segerstrom Review)
“Have you ever been to a concert and left thinking, “Did that really just happen?” And then spent the next 24 hours watching your videos from the night before on loop, because you can’t get enough of that live sound and the fact that you were there to witness the magic? If not, I have two words for you. Jessica. Vosk.
Broadway World (Utah Valley University Noorda Center review)
“Jessica Vosk’s concert at Sixth and I Historic Synagogue last evening was entitled A Broadway Valentine and while many of the songs performed were from Broadway, Vosk kicked things up a few notches by adding songs by Bonnie Raitt, Sara Bareilles, Dolly Parton, and more to her fantastic mix. The result was a wonderful evening…Jessica Vosk’s A Broadway Valentine hit every emotion that love does. The talent of Vosk, Rosen and Mitchell were off the charts and the song choices and Vosk’s winning personality definitely knocked this concert out of the park.”
