As "Tanya" in MAMMA MIA:
"Unbelievably, the appearances of three of the main actors are performed by understudies in the beginning of the run. The result is dazzling. ...Tara Tagliaferro portraying Tanya..born to play the role."
Stage Reviews, Beyond My Backyard

On Boston Stages
As "Jan" in GREASE:
"...cast is superbly talented."
" 'Mooning' led by Adolpho Blaire (Roger) and Jan (Tara Tagliaferro) had the audience literally 'bending' over in their seats."
Greer Firestone, Sussexcountian.com
"...more interesting are the relationships between the Pink Ladies and their T-birds. As the best of this second tier high school royalty, Kate Fahner's Betty Rizzo, Michael Warrell's Kenickie, Lilly Tobin's Frenchy, Tara Tagliaferro's Jan and Rachel Camp's Marty all try harder, at loving, at fighting, at delinquency. Their pains and pleasures have degrees, and their small successes matter."
Wendy Rosenfield, The Philadelphia Enquirer
"Lilly Tobin, Rachel Camp, and Tara Tagliaferro were perfect as pink ladies Frenchy, Marty, and Jan, and captured each of their personalities flawlessly."
A Spoonful of Theatre, Local Blog
" This high energy cast romps, giggles, struts, hand jives and really swings. Not a weak link in this 98% Equity cast as Actors Equity celebrates its 100th Anniversary."
"...each principal character is stellar in their character roles."
Pati Buehler, Broadway World Reviews
As "Mama Who" in GRINCH:
"...Matt David as Papa Who, Tara Tagliaferro as Mama Who, Shaun Rice as Grandpa Who, Katy Vaughn as Grandma Who, Alexandra Cseke and Riley Glick alternating as Annie Who, along with a variety of other phenomenal dancers, singers and actors put the 'Who' in 'Whoa! That’s great!'"
Samantha White, The Oakland Press Detroit
"And providing the singing highlight of the musical are Vincent DiPeri, Tara Tagliaferro, David Thornton, and Katy Vaughn as Cindy-Lou's parents and grandparents."
David Lyman, Cincinnatti.com, The Enquirer
"...worthwhile performances in support are Tara Tagliaferro(Mama Who)... The entire cast does well in portraying these eccentric characters and executing the fitting zany, off-kilter choreography by John DeLuca and Bob Richard."
Scott Cain, Talkin' Broadway
As "Lina Lamont" in Singin' in the Rain with the MWVTC:
“Tagliaferro steals the whole show though with her truly hilarious rendition of‘What’s Wrong With Me?’ Her comic timing, intentionally bad singing, and facial expressions all come together to provide the highlight of the production. The production also integrates filmed parodies of silent films and early talkies. Tagliaferro perfectly capture the essence of the screen acting style of the time.”
Alec Kerr, The Conway Daily Sun
As "Jeanette" in The Full Monty with the MWVTC:
“Tara Tagliaferro is a scene stealer as Jeanette, a showbiz relic who decides to help the boys. Tagliaferro has some of the show’s best lines, as she delivers them just right.”
Alec Kerr, The Conway Daily Sun
As "Tess" in Crazy For You at the Mac-Haydn Theatre:
"The energy, joy, heart, and most of all talent is shining bright with Mac-Haydn Theater's current production of the sunny musical Crazy forYou... 'There is some wonderful supporting character work here as well. Tara Tagliaferro plays her scenes with all the style and flourish that we expect from her brand of seasoned character."
Matthew G. Moross, The Daily Gazette
As the "Female Authority Figure" in Hairspray at the
"In her many broadly cartoon-like roles, Tagliaferro made me laugh
“This girl is a major talent. Unique, playful, and open. Give her a try. She'll figure it out and nail it cause she's hungry like that.”
Rock the Audition Guru
"Tara Tagliaferro is that breath-of-fresh-air kind of talent....
the kind that comes in the room and uncharacteristically makes you laugh, warms your heart, and refreshes your sensibilities of classic musical theatre repertoire. She is a genuine original in a sea of status quo: smart, sassy, intelligent, and America’s next top character leading lady!"
