“The show-stealer, meanwhile, is Amanda Serra, as the Ghost of Christmas Past.”

-Alan W. Petrucelli on Pittsburgh CLO’s production of A Musical Christmas CarolPittsburgh City Paper

“The best is Amanda Serra, whose Algernon has an inbred decadence balanced with joyous cheek.  Miraculously, she has the accent down pat; she even holds a cigarette with the right touch of affectation.”

-Christopher Rawson, Cross-gender 'Earnest' a Wilde Concept; Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Brighter spots included Amanda Serra, mining laughs with good comic timing in the you’ll-get-yours threat, “Ev’rything I’ve Got (Belongs to You).”

-Rob Lester, on Bewitched –The Songs of Rodgers and Hart, Cabaret Scenes; New York, NY

“Also of note are… the Nonnberg Sisters, especially Robin Lounsbury, Kara Mikula and Amanda Serra.  The ensemble and sisters who sing the Prelude and closing hymn are perfect.”

-Kate Luce Angell on Pittsburgh CLO’s production of The Sound of Music; Pittsburgh Post Gazette

“ enormously talented cast, and leading them all is Amanda Serra in a breathtaking performance as Algernon. Though I normally try to avoid hyperbole, I must say that I've seen this play many, many times before but never have I witnessed an Algernon anywhere close to Serra's. She is perfect, in the world's only perfect work of Art!"....Ted Hoover on The Importance of Being Earnest; In Pittsburgh Magazine

“Amanda Serra, enjoyable a few weeks ago as the evil Widow Corney in West Virginia Public Theatre's "Oliver," is so entertaining as the patiently suffering answering service owner, I found myself wishing the authors had given the character more stage time.”

-A.J. Caliendo, on Theatre Factory’s Bells Are Ringing; Pittsburgh Post Gazette

"Joining Lisa Howard at Nonnberg Abbey are Robin Lounsbury, Kara Mikula and Amanda Serra, who ... create a truly angelic offering with "Preludium" and "Wedding Processional.”  They also do a great job with the somewhat lighthearted “Maria.”

-Carol Waterloo Frazier on Pittsburgh CLO’s production of The Sound of Music; McKeesport Daily News
