When emotional wilderness meets stage presence, timing meets music, and sounds meet vibration, then you meet Eliza: sparkling theatricality.
Giovanni Fusetti, Master Clown

Ladd, who channels a galumphy woman carrying a big stick, draped in tragic Frederick’s of Hollywood bargain bin and knee pads down to high-heeled slippers with marabou poofs, steals my heart.
Chris Dohse, know your own bone

Eliza Ladd kept me on the edge of my seat as she shifted from being a shaman to a Brooklyn kvetch to a crooner belting out a raw song from the depths. The miracle is that it all fit together like a gourmet meal.
Karen Bernard, New Dance Alliance
