"Fulton's performance, including her rapid transformations, is mesmerizing and utterly convincing"|
The New Yorker Dec 1, 1997
"Allegra Fulton ferociously inhabits Kahlo's skin. Directed with a sure hand by Peter Hinton, all aspects of the production work to illuminate Kahlo's psyche...One of the most extraordinary performances on the New York Stage."
The Village Voice Nov 25, 1997
"Allegra Fulton plays Kahlo with hypnotic, impeccably calibrated intensity."
New York Magazine Nov 24, 1997
"Allegra Fulton plays the almost mythic Kahlo with a bitter sweetness that makes her seems to be just about the strongest woman who ever lived. Montero's frank script and Peter Hinton's tight direction winds Kahlo's agonizing life around itself like the elaborate braids on her head."
Time Out New York Nov 20-27, 1997
"Stunning one-woman show is a tour de force."
Calgary Herald, Oct 3, 1997
"Intimate and powerful, the production and Fulton's performance burn with the white heat of artistic passion and passionate art."
Theater Week, USA, January 1, 1996
"The strength of Montero's play and the hugely charismatic performance by Allegra Fulton is that neither has chosen a one-sided approach. Their Frida is complex, haunted, nasty, grasping, hurting, passionate and above all immensely alive. Fulton give us a vital, glowing performance that spares us nothing."
Variety, November 4-10, 1996
"A production of surpassing beauty and accomplished artistry"
Ottawa Citizen, Nov 22, 1996
"Fulton was made to play this role"
The Globe and Mail,November 16, 1995
"The heroic, arresting acting of Allegra Fulton makes FRIDA K. a brilliant and breathtaking show."
The Toronto Star, November 18, 1995
"Under the direction of Peter Hinton, Allegra Fulton is riveting"
NOW Magazine, TORONTO, November 23-29, 1995
"Allegra Fulton is consistently, almost aggressively engaging. FRIDA K. is a beautiful and surrealistic work that mirrors Kahlo's own art."
EYE Magazine, TORONTO November 23, 1995
"Montero's script is full of life and hope...finding poetry in Frida's ongoing dance with death. Fulton, in one of the strongest performances of the year, is infinitely matchable...Bonnie Beecher's dynamic lighting scores the emotional and temporal changes in the piece maximizing the dramatic impact of Fulton's astonishing presence."
XTRA Magazine, TORONTO November 24, 1995
"An uplifting triumph of the human spirit...Frida is a rich and piquant character (and more than a little salty) and Fulton gives full value...A striking resemblance to Kahlo..."
The Globe and Mail, July 6,1995
"Fulton's performance is a gem...an entirely convincing and sympathetic portrait of a fierce, fascinating and independent woman."
The Toronto Star July 6,1994
"A performance so controlled and yet intense, so fully embodying the character..."
NOW Magazine, TORONTO July 14-20, 1994
"Fulton is truly mesmerizing in her creation of a living, smoking and raging Frida Kahlo."
EYE Magazine, TORONTO July 14-20, 1994
"In Fulton's mesmerizing portrayal, the socialist Kahlo is always the performer, unable to indulge the sensuality that pulses through her veins yet devoted to Rivera and to the art which serves as drug for both body and heart."
Plays International, U.K. September 1994
