“Miss Parks exuded beauty and poise singing… She has a beautiful soprano voice with an accomplished vocal range, and is a third generation performer. No wonder she was so at home on stage.”
"Miss Parks was the perfect Elsa, vivaciously belting "Let it Go" from Frozen."
"The grateful audience gave a standing ovation… we were treated to quintessential Broadway tunes by consummate pros with distinguished careers."
HOW TO SUCCEED...
“If I've left out Miss Hedy LaRue from my list of raves, it's simply because last does indeed mean best (or at least most revelatory) from the Broadway-bound Parks, heretofore known for roles that showcase, quite possibly, the most glorious soprano in town. Topped by a flame-red wig and in a dress that clung wherever a clingy dress should cling, Parks' Hedy was simply scrumdiddlyumptious, proving that curvaveous redheads can rival the dumbest "proverbial dumb blonde" while demonstrating comedic gifts as finely honed as Parks' legit vocal chops."
APLA's 29th S.T.A.G.E. BENEFIT
“Madison Claire Parks’ recent outing in Oklahoma! proved that she is bestowed with beauty, chops, and personality, but the granddaughter of the late S.T.A.G.E. entertainer, Betty Garrett, presented a vaulting, lyrical and powerful version of The Phantom of the Opera‘s “Think of Me” that had joyful spectators leaping from their chairs.”
-Stage & Cinema
“Madison Claire Parks [as Marsinah], has a beauty and stage presence beyond her years, and as glorious a soprano as you’ll ever hear, on this, or any Broadway stage… Together, Parks and Shaw sing “Baubles, Bangles, And Beads” and “Stranger In Paradise” as gorgeously as they’ve ever been sung.”
LOS ANGELES CABARETS
“Beautiful Madison Claire Parks simply soared with "Much More," [from the Fantasticks] what an incredible lovely soprano voice!"
-Don Grigware (BroadwayWorld)
"Parks, with a gorgeous soprano voice, shaded the optimism of "Look for a Sky of Blue" (Little Mary Sunshine) with just the right amount of tongue in cheek."
-Les Traub (Cabaret Scenes)
"Parks shone brightly in all three of her appearances but it was her soaring soprano during her rendition of "Make Believe" that brought down the house. If any enterprising producer is thinking of reviving Show Boat, they can start by casting Parks as their Magnolia."
-Rob Stevens (TheaterMania)
"Madison Claire Parks, the granddaughter of Betty Garrett and daughter of composer Garrett Parks and performer Karen Culliver, proved talent is in the genes as she wowed the crowd with her voice and stage poise in "It Might As Well Be Spring" from State Fair."
-Rob Stevens (Stage Happenings)
"Parks' soaring soprano lifted the pairing of "Somebody Somewhere" and "My Heart Is So Full of You" from The Most Happy Fella to the heavens."
-Rob Stevens (TheaterMania)
"Parks brought down the house with "My Heart Is So Full of You" from The Most Happy Fella."
