"Soza, as Maria has a powerful soprano... it adds plenty of beautiful drama."

E.H. Reiter

Broadway World

 

"Soza’s powerful, operatic vocals lend drama to pretty much any song she touches. “One Hand, One Heart” is a particular highlight."

James Hebert

"Jessica Soza is believable as Maria, the naive immigrant with a crisp soprano voice that rocks the rafters."

"Both Caltrider and Soza were in fine voice on opening night as they sparked a chemistry that was hard not to believe."

"Jessica Soza's bell-clear Soprano and natural grace are a good choice for Maria, and she manages to win from the first minute to the viewers." (Google Translated)

"Soza is a radiant Maria, with a light spirit and beautiful voice. She is terrific in her transition from innocent girl to young woman in love. She shares a marvelous chemistry with Festa, who is fantastic as Tony."

"Maria Jessica Soza is probably the best military voice of the entire distribution, and its embodiment of a young ingenue discovering the joys and troubles of love is equally compelling." (Google Translated)

Grand Théâtre de la Ville du Luxembourg

 

 

 

"But the star of the show was Jessica Soza. In the role of Maria, she looked not only very glamorous, she was also a heavenly voice. When standing on her balcony the first notes of "Tonight" set in, we were completely charmed: clear, powerful, fine and beautiful to hear. And what a voice range. It was very soon apparent that the roles of Tony and Maria were granted because of the vocal abilities. Vocally these two actors head and shoulders above the rest sticking out. The duet of Tony and Maria " One Hand, One Heart " located in the bridal shop going on, was not only endearing to watch, it sounded pretty awesome. While the two lovers in a dream and gave each other the 'yes', came the soft melody of a romantic ballad. Sound and image complemented each other and gradually echoed the two voices of the singing. And as icing on the cake there was the pure, high note of Maria at the end. It was a moment of pure pleasure." (Google Translated)

"Sweet naive Puerto Rican seamstress Maria, Jessica Soza, and sweet naive Polish delivery boy Tony, Anthony Festa, both endeavor to make a better life for themselves on the island Manhattan, embarking upon a doomed romance in the midst of violent and ultimately fatal rumbles between the warring tribes. Soza and Festa make a gorgeously endearing couple, both beautiful of face with matching pipes."
