SOMEONE FOR EVERYONE

by Barry Caplan

Dr. Irma (depicted) and 13 others
Arts Court Theatre, 2011

"Even in the midst of this exceptionally strong and capable cast, Catriona Leger stands out. She portrays close to a dozen distinct characters effortlessly—from an analyst, to a rabbi, to a series of drunken college girls—slipping from one role to the next as easily as one turns the pages of a book. Her agility and range of expression make one almost forget that the same actor is playing each of these different roles. Leger seems capable of doing anything and everything a comic actor can do with complete mastery. Her influence extends beyond her role to the direction of the movement which is indispensable to the energy of the entire performance, particularly during the transitions." - Andrew Snowdon, Ottawa Tonite

AIRPORT SECURITY

by Patrick Gauthier

Backpacker, Security Guard, Wife

Gruppo Rubato, 2010

"This show is definitely worth seeing. The direction and the acting is excellent... Catriona Leger was sunbeams and awesomeness, even when she played a brain-dead Quebecois security officer" - Jessica Ruano, Ottawa Tonite

LYSISTRATA & THE TEMPLE OF GAIA

by David S. Craig

Slave H and Gaia

Odyssey Theatre, 2018

"Among the most interesting performances that added much sophistication to the  play,  were the slave duo made up of  the nameless  H (Catriona Leger) and the nameless G (David Warburton), nameless as true Greek slaves had to remain.  These two voices making up the contemporary Greek chorus with their own  saucy narrative, their own style of franc-parler which suggested the pre-revolutionary servants of Molière’s theatre, were especially noteworthy for their articulation, their spoken word, their singing,   their own personal choreography and their impeccable comic rhythms that flowed like clockwork all through the show." - Alvina Ruprecht, Capital Critics Circle​

THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES

by Moliere
translation by David Whiteley

Georgette (depicted) and Enrique

Plosive Productions, 2015

"David Benedict Brown and Catriona Leger are a pair of servants so delightful in their impertinence they could have been plucked off the stage of the Comedie-Francaise. In brief, there’s enough sharp-witted talent here to make us forget that what’s happening on stage is something of a mess." - Jamie Portman, Capital Critics Circle

"Dave Brown and Catriona Leger are too much damn fun as the randy servant pair…it’s worth the ticket for their hijinks alone." - Kevin Reid, The Visitorium
