April: Played Rebecca in “Rags” at Theatreworks Silicon Valley, Robert Kelley dir.
“Miller is an awe-inspiring amalgam of clear-eyed determination and maternal ferocity, and her sung performance is every bit as lush as predecessor Stratas, or Julia Migenes from the recording.” — SFExaminer
“…moments of startling lyricism. In her rendition of “Blame It on the Summer Night,” the musical’s sultriest and most melodic tune, Miller writes a whole language out of different ways to fade out of a phrase. At its culmination, her clarion voice blends bewitchingly with the sound from the 10-person orchestra; it’s as if, to convey her confusing new feelings for Saul, her larynx cannot be limited by the human voice alone.” — SFGate
