"Julie is an amazing actress, as gifted and, more important, accomplished as anyone her age I've worked with. You've got to see her."
-- Austin Pendleton
"And in this silence, Julie Baber as Karen thrives. The end of the play is hers for the taking. Indeed she doesn't fail in doing this, with a combination of a new self-realization of strength and delicate emotion."
-- Julie Burrell on Austin Pendleton’s The Children’s Hour
“But it is Julie Baber, as the narrator, who steals the night. Her performance is flawless.”
-- Richard Hinojosa, NYTheatre.com
“As Mary, the longwinded leader, Baber manages to make studied pronunciation sound quite natural. Her breathy excitement and good timing add a cool credibility to even the most ridiculous lines. Her deep growls and shrieks of pleasure give the stiff, know-it-all Mary some shape.”
-- Samantha O’Brien, OffOffOnline.com
“Ms. Baber plays Carol as a woman with as many doubts as she has dreams, able to deliver biting moments of truth to not only Jim but the audience, too.”
-- Lindsey Wilson, Talkin Broadway
"Julie Baber as Hotspur gives this production this power. Switching Hotspur's gender is no mere gimmick since Ms. Baber brings a great deal of nuance to this hotheaded rebel character. It’s one of many reasons why this production is far more preferable to the bloated production of the Tempest at the Delacorte."
