Cheryl Blalock steals the show with her songbird-like coloratura soprano. The Pirates of Penzance, Lyric Theatre, 1992
The show is blessed with two of the finest ingénues in the company, Cheryl Blalock and Rachel Louis as Gianetta and Tess. They showed a clear, concise knowledge of what Gilbert and Sullivan had in mind. The Gondoliers, Lamplighters, 1988
Cheryl Blalock…shows off her considerable vocal abilities as Princess Ida. Princess Ida, Stanford, 1987
Cheryl Blalock was both funny and moving in La Divina, a comic mini-opera about an aging diva who can’t seem to give her final farewell performance. Technically excellent, as she had been at the pops picnic, she also managed to convey both the sadness and the frustration attendant upon one who is heading over the hill. Lake Tahoe Summer Music Festival, 1986
Cheryl Blalock: For catching my jaded eye (the left one) and refusing to let go; and for keeping up the high standards of Gilbert & Sullivan maidens everywhere, a born Yum-Yum if ever there was. Note: picked from the chorus of her first stage production, Lamplighters’ Ruddigore, by Gerald Nachman, primary theater critic for The Chronicle, Valentine’s Day column, 1983
