Goodspeed Opera House
*CT Critics Circle Nomination
Ms. Scott, radiant as Reno Sweeney, her voice commanding, rich and luscious, and Mr. DeRosa, who gives Moonface Martin an almost elastic panache, deliver standout performances.
Rashidra Scott... displays both the sassy and bold voice needed to pull off the evangelical “Blow, Gabriel, Blow” number, and the dancing chops to bring the house down in the toe-tapping first act finale, “Anything Goes.”
Scott dances as well as she sings, which is really saying something when you hear her exquisite, snappily enunciated rendition of "I Get a Kick Out of You."
First, Rashidra Scott as Reno Sweeney simply soars. Her presence on stage commands the audience, but when she starts to sing, she mesmerizes. From her opening number, "I Get a Kick out of You", to her show stopping delivery of "Blow, Gabriel, Blow", Ms. Scott delivers her Reno with a modern sensibility and a voice that fills the room. Her performance alone would make this production worth seeing, but there is so much more!

Prince Music Theater
"...an evening with such great songs has to provide some pleasure, and both Rashidra Scott and Ted Keegan have wonderful voices. Scott's "Maybe This Time" is gorgeous..."The Grass Is Always Greener" is irresistible, and Jaclyn Huberman and Scott have a good time with it; their rendition of "Class" is funny..."
"Rashidra Scott lends her smoky alto to torch songs like "Maybe This Time" and "My Coloring Book""
Original Broadway Company, First National Tour, Ogunquit Playhouse & Gateway Playhouse
"Scott is... terrific. She's definitely got singing chops, but that's to be expected. The real treat is her comedic gifts. Mind you, she's not the bug-eyed, scrap hound that is Whoopi; rather, Scott allows Deloris a sweetness mixed with urban 'tude and unselfconscious, sassy humor – especially in Act II."
New York Times
"A vibrant singer, Ms. Scott invests an underlying sweetness of soul into the raffish Deloris, which suggests why the nuns grow so attached to her."
"Broadway's Rashidra Scott reprises her role as Deloris with charisma that shines through the entirety of the show. Her voice overtakes the theater, cementing her as the true star of the musical."
"Rashidra Scott has portrayed Deloris both on Broadway and with the national tour of Sister Act. She is a formidable singer who expertly uses the nuances of her voice. From sultry and low to loud and proud, Rashidra as Deloris is a confident, sexy starlet with a stage presence that will blow you away."

St. Louis Eats
"Valesia Lekae, Lisa M. Ramey and Rashidra Scott are bright as new dimes as, respectively, Chiffon, Ronnette and Crystal, a spoof of doo-wop girl singers of the ‘60s who also serve to advance the story."
Talkin' Broadway (St. Louis)
"Valisia Lekae, Rashidra Scott and Lisa M. Ramey are dreamy as the Supremes-inspired doo-wop Greek Chorus—and if that description doesn't make sense, well, you'll just have to see the show to appreciate it."
Arizona Theatre Company
The Arizona Republic
"There's some hands-down great singing, especially from Rashidra Scott on the opening Aquarius..."
Paper Mill Playhouse
"As a Motown-inspired singing trio, Iris Burruss, Nicole Powell and Rashidra Scott are supreme."
"Also deserving an honorable mention are... the Dynamites, Iris Burruss, Nicole Powell and Rashidra Scott who are also brilliantly gifted with amazing vocal ranges."
St. Louis MUNY
"While the entire cast is strong, Uzo Aduba, Demond Green and Rashidra Scott... have outstanding voices that make the show all the better."
"The cadre of performers who bounce around and act out the various parables, with varying degrees of success, includes Uzo Aduba, who impressively belts out the Act II opener, Turn Back, O Man, and Rashidra Scott, who demonstrates her own powerful voice on the jubilant tune, O Bless the Lord, My Soul. The two also complement each other handsomely on the beautiful ballad, By My Side."
"You can see the huge difference in experience between these young women and the terrific Rashidra Scott, who plays Lorrell (usually the most thankless of the three original Dreamette roles) and who had me wondering why the nasty producer Curtis Taylor, Jr., didn't just pick her as the lead singer of his new sound and get the looks and the voice."
Chicago Theater Beat
"Rashidra Scott plays the third Dream, Lorrell, a character who frequently fades into the background, but is fully fleshed out here. The most grounded of the three Dreams, Ms. Scott gives Lorrell humanity and texture by showing the singer’s very real and steamy attraction to the singer James “Thunder” Early (winningly played by Eric LaJuan Summers)"
Stage and Cinema
"Some of the most volcanic singing of the night comes from Rashidra Scott, one of the Dreams, whose romantic entanglements with James Early are driving her to distraction."
