Sara Burke's Mrs. Wormwood is hilariously shallow and deliciously outlandish. -Broadway World Austin by Lynn Beaver

The Divas (Sara Burke, Chanel Haynes-Schwartz and Abena Mensah-Bonsu), a trio that run through the entire show, are quite glorious! -Austin Chronicle by Frank Benge

Sara Burke gives an excellent turn in this role, alternately bringing out Roxie's innocent and manipulative characteristics. Like her character, Burke is a star on the rise, stealing the show in every production I've seen her in. -Austin Chronicle by Elissa Russel

Sara Burke's Fiona is equally fiery and vulnerable as she grapples with her conscience over whether to keep her true nature a secret. -Austin Chronicle by Shanon Weaver

Sara Burke plays Belle with depth and her rendition of Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody gives a heartrending meaning to the song. -Broadway World by Lynn Beaver

Sara Burke’s (Molly Aster) charisma is infectious as she takes command of the boys. -Austin 360 They find a friend and determined leader in Molly Aster (playfully portrayed by a tireless Sara Burke), the precocious young daughter of Lord Aster. -Austin Chronicle -Elissa Russell

And as Millie, Sara Burke is sensationally adorkable. She's quirky, energetic, and beautiful. With a wink, a smile, and a crinkle of the nose, she gives a plucky charm to the role. I've seen many Millie's in the last ten years, and none have been as fun to watch as Sara Burke. You can't help but love her, and that sentiment can be said of both the character and the actress responsible for her. - Jeff Davis

Also making a fine turn is up-and-comer Sara Burke as the shy and vulnerable Wendla. Burke plays bright-eyed innocence better than anyone in town, as anyone could see in her award-nominated turn in Sweet Charity, and here she tempers that sweetness with real pathos and doubt, our hearts breaking with every sad expressions that crosses her face. -Austin Theatre Examiner by Ryan E. Johnson

I have given very few standing ovations in eight years of Austin theatergoing, but after pitch-perfect Sara Burke turned to face the audience with one last infectious smile as the horn section offered one final blast, I couldn't help but leap to my feet. The cast seemed to devour the material, executing with ease each delightful and difficult sequence. -Now Playing Austin
