La Serva Padrona - The In Series

“With a mixture of coquettish charm and trickery, beautifully captured by Annie Gill, Serpinia attempts to woo a steadily weakening Lord Hubert. Gill handles the rollercoaster range from high to low of Pergolesi’s score with aplomb, while Adelsberger’s rich, resonant bass glides through arias (“Oh what a fix this is I’m in”) and pattering duets alike, making Hubert more than a match for Serpinia.”

Julia Hurley, DC Metro Theater Arts - September 15th, 2016

"In La Serva Padrona (The Servant Mistress) the master of the house Lord Hubert played by Andrew Adelsberger is intent on getting some semblance of respect and service but his maid Serpinia played winningly by Annie Gill has other ideas. With a gorgeous voice, Serpinia flaunts herself at Lord Hubert, sashays around in come-hither, provocative poses, chases him around the room, and as a last resort connives for his pity."

Debbie Minter Jackson, DC Theatre Scene - September 19th, 2016

"The lighter-than-air plot of “Servant Mistress” revolves around the commedia dell’arte tradition of an old man being cuckolded by a younger woman, usually his much younger wife who’s been more or less forced to marry him against her wishes. In this case, however, the tables are turned, as Lord Hubert (Andrew Adelsberger) is gradually and skillfully conned by the aptly-named Serpinia (Annie Gill), his chambermaid, into proposing marriage. At the same time, the wily, determined Serpinia smoothly incorporates the unwilling but clueless Waspton (Alex Alburqueque), Lord Hubert’s manservant, into her plot. Pergolesi’s sometimes tricky score was nicely sung by both Mr. Adelsberger and Ms. Gill."

Trial by Jury - The In Series

“In all honesty, this little Gilbert & Sullivan production may have been the In Series’ best effort yet. The singing was superb and the diction—always critical in G&S—was spot on with nary a silly phrase being lost. Soloists had their characters down pat…Notable performances as well were turned in by Sean Pflueger as the Forman of the Jury and by Annie Gill, returning from the Pergolesi to sing the role of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Court Reporter.”

Fatal Song - The In Series

“Annie Gill shines as Mimi (and Despina and Pamina). She does not succumb to melodrama, but turns in several nuanced arias one right after the other like “Mi Chiamano Mimi” [They Call me Mimi] from Puccini’s La Boheme.”

DC Metro Theater Arts - September 11th, 2014, Jessica Vaughn

“Soprano Annie Gill (Mimi, Despina, Pamina) was perhaps most convincing in Mimi’s early introductory aria, excerpted from Puccini’s all-time hit, “La Bohème.” Ms. Gill caught every nuance and sensation as Mimi’s emotions run the gamut, touching on her tragic fragility as well as the excitement of her unexpected, newfound romance.”

Communities Digital News - September 14th, 2014, Terry Ponick

“Annie Gill delivers a bell-clear rendition of Mimi’s opening aria from La Boheme, before transitioning to a laughably insecure version of Pamina from The Magic Flute.”

Howard County Rising Star Competition

"Annie Gill drew sighs with her heart-wrenching "Un bel di vedremo" from 'Madama Butterfly'."

Fallen Angels - The Name on the Door

"Each of his cast members demonstrates astounding technical vocal ability and several are very compelling actors. Most successful in combining sound vocals with solid song interpretation, acting, and stage presence [is] Annie Gill (Jezebel)."

Jennifer Perry, DC Metro Theater Arts - July 15, 2012

"In the final piece, Jezebel mourns that there is no “fountain of youth” for her to drink from. With a renewed confidence, she realizes her career is still ahead of her, and resolves, “if I must fall, I will be the brightest star to fall!” Gill sings these last lines in a glorious tone, prompting the audience to erupt in applause."

Iolanthe - Washington Savoyards

"All of the cast principles sing well, although Annie Gill’s performance as Phyllis is particularly memorable. Her enunciation is flawless and her vocals soar, especially in her duets with Strephon (”Good Morrow, Good Lover” and “None Shall Part Us from Each Other”). "

Steven McKnight, DC Theatre Scene - March 31st, 2009

"Annie Gill as Phyllis sang well and grew into [her] comic timing as the evening went on."

Joan Reinthaler, The Washington Post - March 30th, 2009

"Thanks to tremendous talent, the Savoyards have put on another spectacular production. From the start of the overture the music was amazing. How nice to hear a FULL orchestra and trained LOCAL singers on a DC stage! Though there are many great performances, the stand-outs are Annie Gill, who would blow the roof off the joint if they let her, and a very impressive Jase Parker."
