Press Reviews

  • Bluish (Alliance Theatre)

    Too bad she’s not on stage more…

    As Beth’s stepmother, Lane, Karen Uchida Beyer is a wonderfully syrupy, almost surreal Southern stereotype. Watch how she exudes dainty femininity and cluelessness with the simple cock of a shoulder. Too bad she’s not on stage more.

    Ladyhood gone ballistic…

    Karen Uchida Beyer’s portrayal of Beth’s stepmother, Lane, just reeks of Piedmont Driving Club Southern ladyhood gone ballistic with some of the shows best lines.

  • The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Colquitt Miller Arts)

    Noteworthy performance:

    Karen Beyer’s perfectly pleasant voice and stern, but kind demeanor as Widow Douglas & Aunt Sally.

  • Womenfolks (ART Station)

    Most mysterious…

    Beyer’s angsty interludes are the play’s most mysterious.

  • Veranda 1 (14th Street Playhouse)

    Artfully Executed

    Veranda was artfully executed by Karen Beyer as the matriarch.


    A Well Rounded Comic Performance

    Mixes it up to rich effect

    Karen Beyer’s Southern Baptist version of Martha Stewart mixes it up to rich effect.

  • Veranda 2 (14th Street Playhouse)

    A hurricane with comic timing

    Karen Beyer as the family matriarch is like a force of nature when she takes the stage. Think of a hurricane with comic timing…

    Keith Hartman
    Etc Magazine

    Karen Beyer leads a likable cast as Sarah Edwards…

    Mark Binelli
    Atlanta Journal Constitution

    I especially adored Karen Beyer’s performance as Sarah Edwards, the family matriarch…”

  • Veranda 3 (14th Street Playhouse)

    The backbone… of the play

    Beyer is the backbone of the family and of the play, a refreshingly game performer and tears into slapstick gleefully.

    Southern Voice

  • The Limousine Ride (Peachtree Playhouse)

    Cult Status

    Beyer has achieved cult status for the recurring role of the Southern society matron in Veranda 1, 2 and 3.
