A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS at The Broadway Playhouse - Chicago, IL
" Jamie Finkenthal deserves a shout out for her portrayal of the self-confident and assertive Lucy"
-Broadway World Review
SHREK at Little Theatre on the Square
"Jamie Finkenthal not only changed costumes but voices as Mama Orge and as the Dragon. Because of the tricky positions and costumes of the characters, many had to alter their natural movements."

WINTER WONDERETTES! at Pagosa Center for the Arts
"Another highlight in Act II is Jamie Finkenthal's poignant response to her character's shattered childhood holiday dreams. Her delivery of all those Christmas cliches sounds a reflective note and reveals a different dimension to Cindy Lou."

The Knuffle Bunny! at Emerald City Theatre
"Trixie, played by Jamie Finkenthal, steals the show with her solo song, “Aggle Flaggle Klabble,” which showcases Finkenthal’s prodigious vocal range.”
- Time Out Kids
Trixie (Jamie Finkenthal) pours out her heart in a solo number (which she sings, of course, in toddler babble). The piece may have been a bit slow for the kids, but the adults howled with laughter as a chandelier appeared, Phantom-style, and Trixie hit the high notes.
- Chicago Theatre Beat
Each cast member brought their character to life really well, but my favorite was Trixie. Not only is she adorable, but her ballad of love and loss sung only in baby speak (aggle, fraggle, baggle) is HILARIOUS! Add her amazing voice to the nonsensical words and the juxtaposition of the two had the audience rolling!

Summer of '42 at Kalliope Stage
"Jamie Finkenthal, Elizabeth Kelly, and Julie Marx look as though they stepped off a pinup calendar when they sing as a fantasy Greek chorus in Andrews Sisters harmonies. When they switch to their other roles - awkwardly real teens in bobby sox who are the objects of the boys' attentions - the contrast is both comic and sweet."
- Linda Eisenstein, The Plain Dealer
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at Timber Lake Playhouse
"David Herr and Jamie Finkenthal, whose tentative flirtation as Andre and the randy divorcée, Muriel, morphs from sweetness to shocking, riotous hunger. (After this pairing and their married-couple bickering in June's Lend Me a Tenor, Herr and Finkenthal are officially my favorite stage couple of 2009.)"
- Mike Schulz, River Cities Reader
"The three leading ladies are equally strong....Jamie Finkenthal as Muriel Eubanks maintains equilibrium in a difficult-to-balance role."
- Bill Beard, The Rock River Times
Jerry's Girls with Ensemble Theatre
"Jamie Finkenthal does a lilting job with “Shalom” from “Milk and Honey". The show moves breathlessly as cast members alternate solos and ensembles."
- Donald Rosenberg, The Plain Dealer
"Jamie Finkenthal plants her feet squarely on the ground, defiantly faces the audience and gives us an earnest chanteuse rendition of "Time Heals Everything."
