EDGE Theatre's "A Klingon Christmas Carol": “...Aly Grauer's Vulcan was a delightful palate-cleanse whose intellect and whit shone in every raised eyebrow and inquisitive pursed lip on her expressively non-expressive face.” – Fantasy Realm of Chicago “As the Vulcan narrator, Aly Grauer is the perfect deadpan foil to the boisterous Klingon cast.” – Chicago Reader Otherworld Theatre's "Messina 3004: A Dystopian Much Ado About Nothing": “Beatrice (Aly Grauer) gave off an air of Katniss from The Hunger Games - strong, badass and clever.” – Loyola Phoenix “Drew Mierzejewski and Aly Grauer generate great chemistry in the love-hate relationship between Benedick and Beatrice. Perhaps not surprisingly, as the two actors are married.” – Chicago Theater Beat Loyola University Chicago's "King John": “The play's best performance is senior Alyson Grauer's highly charismatic turn as Richard the Lionheart's bastard son. She manages to be very funny while still creating a nuanced character who wouldn't be out of place in a more traditionally dramatic production. This character, who balances a winking acknowledgment of the absurdity of the political machinations on display with a genuine dramatic arc, consistently represents the tone that the rest of the play manages to hit at very its best moments.” – Loyola Phoenix Piccolo Theatre's "Bah Humbug!" "The cast does a hilariously good job. They have wonderful comedic timing and chemistry; hence the physical comedy works well throughout the play. ... Alyson Grauer as the Ghost of Christmas Past ... provide[s] for some great laugh-out-loud moments." - Chicago Theatre Beat Piccolo Theatre's "The Cherry Orchard" "Though Piccolo has assembled a fine cast, the performances of Amy Gorelow, Berner Taylor, Alyson Grauer, David W.M. Kelch, and Glenn Proud stand out as particularly hearty, with strong support from the rest of the cast." - Chicago Theatre Beat
