A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

But it is Kathy McCafferty who gifts us with one of the finest performances of the season in her singular unique creation of a haunted Blanche whose past drives her inexorably forward into behaviors almost guaranteed to lead to disaster.

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

Knowing Kathy McCafferty’s outstanding performances in past Dramaworks productions “Outside Mullingar” and “Little Foxes,” I had expected her to take on the pivotal role of Blanche with a sense of ownership. She does…The audience is clearly mesmerized by McCafferty’s performance, which by play’s end left everyone breathless.

LAST GAS (world premiere)

Portrayed by Kathy McCafferty with that sort of room-filling effervescence that we sense borders on desperation, Lurene is looking hard for something she later learns might never have been real. McCafferty’s energetic performance made even her character’s rediscovery of a familiar regional confection into a remarkable event.

THE LITTLE FOXES

at once charming and conniving…and utterly unforgettable.

DANCING AT LUGHNASA

I will never again be able to see the character of Rose without recalling Kathy McCafferty’s indelible performance.

OUTSIDE MULLINGAR

McCafferty is winning as the blazingly intelligent, lovely and determined heroine whose strength barely masks a longing that threatens to burst out her body. McCafferty perfectly depicts those warring elements.She makes credible Shanley’s admiring view that the couple would never get together if not for Rosemary’s courage and perseverance, which rivals that of the Bible’s Ruth. Try not fall in love with her yourself.

THE VERTICAL HOUR

McCafferty, who astutely speaks with authority which brings substantive credibility to Nadia’s unwavering principles, supplies a feisty fervor throughout, a key element missing from Julianne Moore’s oddly tentative portrayal in original Broadway production.

FALLING

Tami, is played with a double dose of courage, honestly, realism and sardonic humor by Kathy McCafferty. Kathy as Josh’s mom, not only keeps the play going she keeps the family and herself going, during some pretty uncomfortable situations.I can’t remember the last time I was so filled with genuine feelings while watching actors on a stage. Because in my reality, they ceased to be actors, I was watching a real family.

THE VERTICAL HOUR

Kathy McCafferty created a stage persona of both physical beauty and dramatic veracity.
