Reviews and Kind Words
"It’s Sheilagh Weymouth who takes this production to new heights as Sonia, a character that can appear on the surface almost witchy (yes, there’s a rhyming word that fits here, too), but Weymouth manages to make Sonia very sympathetic; we want to hug her to make the bad memories go away."
Sierra Lodestar, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
"Sheilagh Weymouth gives a formidable and seamless performance as the droll and depressed Sonia."
The Union Democrat, for Sierra Repertory Theatre’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
"… and some are flat-out excellent, as in Who You Got to Believe, the story of two people who bond over their losses in post-Katrina New Orleans. Economically written by Charlene A. Donaghy, beautifully directed by Zoya Kachadurian, and movingly acted by Sheilagh Weymouth and L.B. Williams, Who You Got to Believe is the sort of play that reminds me why I go to evenings of one acts!"
Review, Short Takes
"You were great in the play. Nuanced and sensuous, tender and heartbreaking. Well done."
John Augustine, Playwright/Director/Actor, regarding Einstein
"Frankly I am dumb struck! YOU, were just amazing. Every performance you were in, you morphed into the character beyond anyone's hope to see it portrayed so well. It was as if you had studied the works for weeks and retrieved every nuance of your life's experience to bring those performances to the stage. I AM ON BENDED KNEE, with rose and a Brava at your feet."
Jay Eisenberg, Playwright, The Fear Of Everything
"I had the privilege of seeing you do several cold readings at a performance put on by the Bucks County Playhouse, and I was amazed at your ability to transform into completely different characters and show a range of emotions so fluidly. You altered your voice, your expressions, your body language and even the cadence of your speech to capture the inner life of the characters. Even though you weren’t involved in any of the scenes I wrote, I sought you out after the performance to tell you how brilliant your acting was. I became a Sheilagh Weymouth fan that day, and I can’t wait to see you act again!"
John McDonnell, Playwright
"Sheilagh, I just wanted to thank you again for bringing your great presence and personality to our series. It was my pleasure to direct you in our scenes together and Michael was thrilled to have you on in his episodes. You performed so well with all our cast and looked great doing it. I'm glad we did this together. It was a blast."
Aleks Arcabascio, co-producer, co-writer and co-director of Artistically Challenged
"Sheilagh -- You're such a pro and I'm so glad I found you. You rocked that cougar mama role. That ass-grabbing looks pretty good on camera. You were great to work with and I look forward to including you in future projects."

Jay Prasad, Playwright, Einstein (this one always makes me giggle)
"Sheilagh, You made the movie! I can't begin to convey my deep respect and admiration for the work you did in front and behind the camera. You kept me on my toes, kept the questions coming and always tried things differently. To me you embody the qualities of a truly great artist and I can't wait to work with you again. Earnestly, Michael."
Michael Minard, Filmmaker, REinc
"Dear Sheilagh, I was hoping to see you, but you were surrounded by adoring fans on the sidewalk of 54th. I wanted to congratulate you and tell you how much I enjoyed getting a chance to see you on stage and to hear the beginning of what I'm sure will be a very compelling story. Your voice and stage presence are divine, my dear, and you deserve all the flowers strangers will continue to give you. Xoxoxox, Robert."
