"You need to listen to the heart-wrenching and human-affirming arias like “Shall We Ever See?” sung magnificently by Mother (Buffy Baggott)..." 

                                              - Joseph Miller, Santa Barbara Independent

 

"Mezzo-soprano Buffy Baggott was a tonally lustrous and dramatically adept Miss Jessel."

                                               - Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

 

"Buffy Baggott's plush mezzo-soprano was an asset as the insinuating and uncommonly glamorous Miss Jessel."

                                                  - Georgia Rowe, San Jose Mercury News


"In Buffy Baggott and Peter Kendall Clark, this cast has a Mrs. Lovett and Sweeney Todd who not only sang gorgeously (especially Clark) but also displayed the dramatic range and comic timing (especially Baggott) to turn the blackness of the tale into something transcendent. Everything came together in the pair's madcap tour de force, A Little Priest, in which unspeakable material (Mrs. Lovett's pies made from entrails of Todd's murder victims) became the stuff of exhilarating song and dance."

"Mao's three secretaries, Ginger Costa-Jackson, Buffy Baggott, and Nicole Birkland, were wonderful in their rendition of Adams's score, conveying a physical and aural sense of claustrophobia and adoration around the Chairman."

- Marina Romani, AP

"Ginger Costa-Jackson, Buffy Baggott and Nicole Birkland showed apt unsmiling efficiency as well as strong voices as the echoing chorus of Mao’s secretaries. "

- Lawrence A Johnson, Classical Review

"In the role of the seductress Maddalena, mezzo-soprano Buffy Baggott gave a sizzling account of the role, which only appears in the last act. It's not a large one, but Baggott gave her Maddalena a sense of sexual gravitas, and the effect was a curious three dimensionality."

- Edward Ortiz, Sacramento Bee


"The cast was first-rate, beginning with mezzo-soprano Buffy Baggott's superlative turn as the Composer. Baggott's local performances have been reliable treasures for years now, in both traditional and new repertoire, but I don't think I've ever heard her sing with such finely controlled urgency, such tonal brilliance or such theatrical flair. The fact that the Composer sings only during the prologue has rarely come as such a disappointment."

– Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle
