“Through Graff's unfailingly cheerful delivery, Frieda's barbs cut like a razor blade hidden in a gelatin mold.”(read full article)

“Randy Graff is a distinctive and astounding talent!”(read full article)
- David Friscic, DC Metro Theater Arts
“Between the talent at the microphone and the brilliant Weil on the piano, arranging and re-arranging, this evening was one of the greatest evenings I've spent in a theatre in a long time.” (read full article)

“Ms. Graff, who won a Tony for her role in the 1989 Broadway musical City of Angels,...and who played Fantine in the original Broadway production of Les Misérables, sang the most honest version of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ I can remember. Stripped of bombast and weepy self-pity, it became a blunt expression of how, in her words, ‘the dream changes as you get older.’” (read full article)
- Stephen Holden, The New York Times
“Graff, it should be noted is not a showy performer. She doesn't strut around the stage or gesticulate wildly. She simply stands, sings from her big heart and beguiles.” (read full article)

“Randy's phrasing and her vocal dexterity, combined with her irresistible personality and acting prowess caused me to rename her show. ‘Made in Music Heaven.’ ” (read full article)
- Stephen Sorokoff, Times Square Chronicles
“Randy Graff is such a good actress she could probably make reciting Mother's Day cards sound fascinating.”
- Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Dailly News
“Graff knows how to get to the heart of a song.”
- Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Dailly News

“In one spectacular turn that rocks the second act, the winning Randy Graff, as a loyal secretary to both Stone and Stine, leaps across the color barrier to belt out her blues as the other woman in two male lives.”
- Frank Rich, The New York Times

“As Sophie, Randy Graff delights: Without having anything dazzling about her, she manages to exude warmth and grace and does everything unerringly right.”
- John Simon, New York Magazine
“Graff’s tender and wise rendition of ‘Next Best Thing to Love,’ a paean to a lost connection, remains a showstopper”
- Bruce Weber, The New York Times (Broadway)
“Her one solo number, ‘Next Best Thing to Love,’ is as good anything in A Chorus Line but would mean nothing if it didn’t have Graff’s exquisite gravity. In a song lasting mere minutes, she conveys this woman’s entire being, and it's wonderful to behold.”
- Jason Clark, Matinee Magazine

“The audience favorite of this production is Randy Graff as the repressed and miserable Charlotte, whose sarcastic comments and devious machinations are played with a strong undercurrent of painful self-revelation that adds humanity to a role that might otherwise remain a caricature.”
- TheatreMania.com

“Randy Graff steals the show as the wife of a straying count.”
- Entertainment Weekly
