As Guido's Mother in Nine: And of course there is the ever-present Italian mother (Kristen Freilich is a hoot).
- Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-times

Walter Stearns' laudably ambitious production does have some quite decent performances, including Kristen Freilich as Guido's mother.

as the Lucy's Mother in A Lesbian the Pantry at the New York International Fringe Festival

And that allows the actors to serve the material magnificently, especially Freilich. The piece is spare, just 50 minutes, and she has invested each moment -- truly, literally each line -- with concrete choices that are correct for her character and unerringly, almost mischievously funny. Freilich's charisma, coupled with Strodel's brooding intensity and Beinert's skill at playing dead, makes this unlikely work a wonderwork.
Leonard Jacobs, Backstage.com read the whole review

Clad in a cotton-candy-colored ensemble and looking like a world-weary Mary Kay saleslady, Freilich is hilarious, veering between sanity and insanity, singing gleefully and posing maniacally. These two actors are a treat to watch; we have fun because they're clearly having fun.

as the Lucy's Mother in A Lesbian the Pantry, the Athenaeum and Donny's Skybox

"Kristen Freilich and Shannon Strodelís vocal expertise is unimpeachable, while the conviction with which they endow their archetypal characters likewise transcends the temptation to slam-bang ridicule.
Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times read the whole review

"Intense performances by Kristen Freilich as the embittered mother...spurred hearty applause when the women eventually decided to forge on together."
Mary Shen Barnidge, Chicago Reader

as Fraulein Kost in Cabaret, Porchlight Theatre

"...and Fraulein Kost (the Brechtian-faced Kristen Freilich), a prostitute who has a way with sailors."
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

"Some performances, scenes and musical numbers, like Tomorrow Belongs to Me (sung by Kristen Freilich), are excellent."
Venus Zarris, Gay Chicago

as Rhoda in A New Brain, Porchlight Theatre

"...his very Noo Yawk agent, Rhoda (Kristen Freilich) has a song that establishes her personality..."Whenever I Dream" (Freilich in flamboyant form). "
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

"There is also some exceptional work from the supporting players, such as...Freilich's all-business exterior masking a heart that really feels much more than she allows herself to reveal."
Jeff Rossen, Gay Chicago

"...the excellent ensemble (including Moshe Adams and Kristen Freilich) really sell the big numbers..."
Web Behrens, Chicago Free Press

as Fosca's Mother in Passion, Porchlight Theatre

"Lovely voices abound, but with the exception of Kristen Freilich and Christa Buck Van Ermen (both in small roles) no one is able to find a truthful moment."
Emily Lee, Gay Chicago
