For playing Charity Hope Valentine in Sweet Charity:

Musical Theatre Review:

"Birtill has a sweet, clear tone, superb timing and handles the subtleties of her character with aplomb. Catherine could seem like a bit of a shrew in the wrong hands, but here she’s heartbreakingly sympathetic"

Jo Fletcher-Cross

Musical Theatre Review:

"...At its core, however, the show depends on an excellent leading lady, and Birtill gives it heart, character, sensitivity and big delivery of the memorable Cy Coleman/Dorothy Fields numbers."  Chris Grady

Press for Monique in The Boy Who Fell Into A Book:

The Guardian: 

                     "Katie Birtill is a pulp- perfect scarlet woman."                         Clare Brennan

      British Theatre Guide:

           "Katie Birtill thrills as French arch-enemy Monique"                                                           Mark Smith

East Anglian Daily Times:


"It’s a bright, sparkling show which rejoices in being a spectacular, large cast musical but in reality it is an intimate one woman show. This blockbuster stands or falls on the performance of Charity Valentine.... Birtill’s portrayal Charity Valentine is an effervescent ball of light which floats through the show and sends you home with a bounce in your step and a smile on your face."                       Andrew Clarke

Press for Katie Birtill playing Cathy in The Last Five Years:

The Stage:

"Birtill and Cowley create two believable but flawed individuals, sympathetic but also frustrating – at times you want to bang their heads together. Their singing is both powerful and moving..."

Andrew Clarke 

The Stage:

"The New Wolsey has found itself a supremely talented Charity in the form of Katie Birtill. She not only sings with controlled power but invests the role with some quiet moments of genuine reflection."                                                                                      Andrew Clarke 

West Morland Gazette:

"Katie Birtill's performance as "The Girl" looking for love in New York was nothing short of dazzling...Katie's gorgeous voice, her warmth, sweetness and beauty held the audience spellbound for an hour                                                                                                                                                           By Rachel Garnett

Stagey Lady 

"And this is a truly magnificent hit, thanks to  the spellbinding performance of the solo artist, Katie Birtill. It’s a huge demand on any performer, to hold a stage alone for well over an hour, but oh how superbly Birtill does it. She has not only an exquisite voice, but also the capacity to draw us totally into her story, the ability to switch from steel to vulnerability half way through a line."                                                                                                                                                               By "Stagey Lady" blog
