Brittany D. Simmons has returned to dry land after eight months on board the Vision of the Seas!
"Playing the troubled teen Carrie, who has discovered she can move things with her mind, Brittany D. Simmons creates a complex mix of fragility and strength in her characterization, both anchoring and bolstering this production. With striking auburn hair, pale skin and sharp blue eyes that often seem to be pleading to understand her predicament, Simmons uses her stellar vocal talents to express overwrought emotions that eventually bust into telekinetic mayhem...
The common denominator is Simmons, a veteran of numerous local productions, who has clearly come into her own with a performance that ranks as one of the year’s best."

By final bow, Simmons appeared to have fully descended into madness, making Margaret’s biblical sacrifice seem more reasonable than one would wish. -Julinda Lewis - Richmond Times Dispatch
"Brittany Simmons’ Fantine lasts in memory long after she’s sung I Dreamed a Dream."
Steve Barnes, Times Union
"And Brittany Simmons as the troublemaking Abigail, seemed at first to be taking too contemporary an approach to her character, but her performance grew until Abigail seemed a very real and frightening exemplar of a certain kind of young woman."
