a stunning portrayal."

                                          ~ Orange County Register 

"Suzanne Ford's iron-willed

socialite is superb."

                                                                  ~ Los Angeles Times

"Suzanne Ford

as Polly Wyeth

dominates the stage

 with her flippant, assertive

embodiment of their privileged

Republican life. Then, turning

on a dime, stops everyone

 cold with her piercing declarations

of harsh reality."

                                                                                ~ Broadway World

She captivates in every stride."

As Frances in

Slasher!

by Allison Moore

directed by Lee Sankowich

with Brendan Bradley, Tim Cummings. Steffany Huckaby, Deb Knox and Joanna Strapp 

Zephyr Theatre

Hollywood, California

"As the battle ax mother, Suzanne Ford hilariously 

 pops pills and wheels around the house in a scooter,

 barking out vehement tirades. She and Cummings

 shine in nonstop moments of wry fun."

                                                                                ~ Backstage

With the fabulous Joanna Strapp

Brilliantly volatile

Tim Cummings

gets his revenge

"I was really blown away by this show. It surprised me all the way through. I was laughing my head off, and then I was totally creeped out (the actors are insanely good, and the mother is a total riot). It's a really impressive production for such an intimate little space. The actors are the standout, though the blood tries its best to upstage them. Go see this. It's not your typical night out at the theater."

                                                                                ~ Random audience member

“The ensemble crackles with witty,

sympathetic performances, especially

Suzanne Ford's graceful turn as

prickly rival Ginger.”

“Suzanne Ford takes

heiress-gone-broke Ginger

and gives her warmth, depth

and strength.”

                                  ~ StageSceneLA

“Suzanne Ford’s warm and

witty Ginger faces the real world

with sophisticated aplomb.”   

                                                                                   ~ Backstage

The Tale of the

Allergist's Wife

"Ford is perfect as

the gorgeous, cultured,

name-dropping world traveler

who knows everyone from

Kissinger to Warhol to Princess Di.

Her sly seduction of the long-

married and faithful couple

is a comic highpoint.

Who knew a Chinese dumpling

could double as an aphrodisiac?"

                                                                                ~ Backstage

as Lee Green in

The Tale of the Allergist's Wife

Laguna Playhouse

directed by Joel Bishoff

with Randee Heller, Sue Ozeran,

Barry Pearl and Daniel Tatar

“A human hurricane, Suzanne Ford nicely  blends  intellect, sexiness and egotism.”

                                                ~ Orange County Register 

“As the jet-setting Lee,

Ford wittily suggests

a globe-trotting, self-styled

Holly Golightly.”

                                                          ~ Los Angeles Times

laughing it up with

the great Randee Heller

“Suzanne Ford is a

dazzling presence, 

dynamic and charismatic ~

her Lee is

an enticing performance.”

                                                                       ~ The View

Spinning a tale for Randee Heller, Sue Ozeran and Barry Pearl. What a cast!

Ford's sensitive and beautifully layered performance builds to a shattering catharsis.
