Press Reviews

Praise for Million Dollar Quartet

2019 Greater Boston Stage Co.

"As Presley's girlfriend Dyanne, Melissa Geerlof was a delight, acting and singing the role quite well. Among the songs woven into the score for the character was Peggy Lee's hit "Fever," and Geerlof's sultry interpretation proved a highlight." - Ed Tapper, Edge Media Network

"In a show that is laden with testosterone, Melissa Geerlof (Dyanne) adds femininity, a flashy Pepsodent smile, and a couple of smoking vocals as Elvis' love interest."

- Nancy Grossman, Broadway World

"Melissa Geerlof slips into the role of Dyanne, a promising songstress.  She shows she is much more than Elvis’s eye candy singing Fever with an alluring, bluesy growl." - The Sleepless Critic

"As the only female performer, Geerlof more than holds her own with the boys, delivering a sultry but muscular version of “Fever” early on, and rocking rendition of “I Hear You Knockin’” towards the end of the show in addition to providing some stellar backup vocals." - Mike Hoban, Theater Mirror

Praise for Allegiance

2018 SpeakEasy Stage Co.

"Melissa Geerlof brings power, humor, and heart to every moment she shares with the other characters."

- Sam Fidler, WERS Boston

"Melissa Geerlof also nails it as nurse and everyday hero Hannah Campbell"

- Kamela Dolinova, The Arts Fuse

"...Yoo and Geerlof, both lovely singers and strong actresses"

- Jan Nargi, Broadway World

"Faring best are Melissa Geerlof as the white nurse who pays the ultimate price for her feelings for Sammy..."    - Christopher Ehlers Dig Boston

"Melissa Geerlof, the only female cast member, lends a sultry, feminine voice of reason as Dyanne, Elvis’s girlfriend-of-the-moment. She is often a welcome addition to the more testosterone-laden scenes, belting out a couple of solos that highlight her vocal chops."

- Kate House, Wicked Local
