"Seven Broadway veterans round out the eight-person cast, including the power-belter LaQuet Sharnell"
Catherine Rampell - NY Times
"The true powerhouse of the ensemble, LaQuet Sharnell, performs standout numbers, "Movie House in Manhattan," "Schrafft's (a paean to the once famous restaurant chain)," and my personal favorite, "Please Take it Back," which was unfortunately cut from the original Broadway production. Her power belting and rich tones need no amplification as she dramatically evokes each number effortlessly."
Christina Mancuso - Off-Broadwayworld.com
"When "Myrrhine," played by LaQuet Sharnell, sang, she engulfed, mesmerized, and grabbed your attention! LaQuet's soulfully powerful voice was always a delight to listen to, especially on "Don't Judge a Book!" She knows the meaning of control and when to let it out!"

"LaQuet Sharnell sings very well!"
Mark Kennedy: Huffington Post for Lysistrata Jones, 2011
"LaQuet Sharnell is a real wonder, who at first goes by pretty much in the background. But as her part in the plot grows, you marvel at her attention to details - everything for a more reassured strut in her step to a jaunty way of fixing her hair with an "I dare you" look of challenge, a crooked smile and devilish toss of the head. Her act two duet, "Don't Judge a Book" is a show-stopper and laugh til you cry moment."
JK's Theatre Scene for Lysistrata Jones, 2011
"LaQuet Sharnell was a bundle of energy in the lead role. Her dancing (would that there were more), enlivened several numbers, and her singing, culminating in the grand finale, "Home," was impressive."
Steve Feeney: Portland Press for The Wiz, 2011
LaQuet Sharnell sings the part of Dorothy with great power and grace, and delivers most of the show's highlights – holy mackerel, what a voice!"
Will Gottieb: Coastal Journal for The Wiz, 2011
"Alongside the central performances is a notable turn from LaQuet Sharnell, who brings sparkle to Mhyrinne, an African-American cheerleader in love with a Caucasian boy. She also rocks out when she plays the hooker he visits at Hetaira's."
Andy Propst: Theatermania for Lysistrata Jones 2011
LaQuet Sharnell who plays 'Mhyrinne,' brings her comedic and sultry talents along with her unforgettable powerhouse vocals, particularly on 'Don't Judge A Book'"
Adaumbelle's Quest for Lysistrata Jones 2011
"LaQuet is quite frankly the best dancer in the entire company. She handles the choreography with excellent precision and professionalism. She is so hypnotic that you can't take your eyes off of her. LaQuet brings an energetic and innocent quality to the role. She is simply luminous."
John Garcia: The Column Review for A Chorus Line 2002
"There's an effective girl trio (Vanessa Ray, Amanda Flynn and LaQuet Sharnell), so typical of the era"
Roy Berko October 20, 2005 Footloose Carousel Dinner Theater
"The five performers Wayne Pretlow, LaQuet Sharnell, Aurelia Williams, Andre Ward, and Natasha Yvette Williams are near flawless in their dancing and perfect in their interpretation of Waller’s tunes. They grab a hold of your attention and don’t let go til the curtain call."
The Long Island Advance June 2005 Ain’t Misbehavin
"LaQuet Sharnell propels her purse like a lethal baton on ‘Yacht Club Swing’."
NewsDay.com June 2005 Ain’t Misbehavin
"Smokey, sexy, soulful and sassy actresses Natasha Yvette Williams, LaQuet Sharnell, Aurelia Williams and actors Wayne W. Pretlow and Andre Ward pay homage to “Fats Waller” with their amazing vocals and awesome stage presence."
