Luscious, leggy dancehall girls [which includes], Catriona Fray ,combine deliciously deadpan vocals and their own signature poses to make “Big Spender” yet another standout song-and-dance sequence, with Fray’s eleventh-hour cameo as Rosie proving how quickly a good girl can go bad. - Steven Stanley, StageScene LA
Catriona Fray portrayed Audrey, Seymour's innocently sweet and doe-eyed girlfriend, with remarkable ease. Her bright, beautiful, and always on-pitch voice added to the warmth of Audrey's pure character. Fray gave an impassioned performance that was a pleasure to watch. - George Brietigam, BroadwayWorld.com
Marguerite, played Catriona Fray, a newcomer to this production, is a tremendous contribution to the show. Fray’s take on Marguerite is spot on with a singing voice that is sweet, controlled and multifarious—every song is a gem where radiant colors abound. - Ryan M. Luévano
Fray displays terrific stage presence as Julie, and sings to perfection, Fray showing off a glorious soprano in “What’s The Use Of Wond’rin”

Fray does a beyond professional job in playing Lucy. She avoids falling into the trap of playing Lucy too slutty or throwing a pity party for herself. Fray finds a confidence in Lucy, and sticks with it to the point where the audience is rooting for Lucy and Jekyll just as much as you are for Emma and Jekyll. Fray’s belting voice does absolute justice to her opening song, “Bring on the Men,” Act 1 cry, “Someone Like You,” and the Act 2 number, “A New Life.”
[Noticeable Ones] is fronted by Catriona Joelle Fray, who brings the same charm and quirkiness that the famed Dale Bozzio pioneered, while blending in her own uniqueness and vocal prowess. -Reverb Nation
