"In what can be considered casting genius, Sean Patrick Doyle dons the glam role Fruma-Sarah (Lazar’s dead wife) and conjures up his inner Elphaba to glorious effect. Doyle, a countertenor, is quite simply amazing in what he pulls off and truly redefines this role for new productions to follow, if they dare."
-Michael J. Roberts, Showbiz Chicago
"Also interesting is the fact that Sean Patrick Doyle is the first man to professionally play the ghost Fruma-Sarah (quite the scene stealer with his operatic falsetto notes and green-faced makeup)."
-Scott C. Morgan, Chicago Daily Herald
"'The Dream' sequence is funny and eerie, with Sean Patrick Doyle as an agile and spectral Fruma Sarah." - Alice Carter, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
"In this production, Fruma Sarah is played by a man, Sean Patrick Doyle—who sings the full soprano melody, while layered in wild green makeup and sporting an enormous wig... Doyle sits on a castmate’s shoulders, raising him above the crowd while his bottom half is concealed beneath a floor-length gown of rags. Fruma Sarah’s song is easily one of the best moments in the show, as Doyle and his legs run around the stage like a scary game of backyard Chicken."
-Dan Renzi, South Florida Blade
"In a wonderfully animated cameo, Sean Patrick Doyle plays Fruma-Sarah while dressed like a giant green goblin covered in jewelry."
- Matt Windman, Theatremania
"Sean Patrick Doyle carries off the part of Fruma-Sarah as well as it can be done."
-Chip Deffaa, Cabaret Scenes
"...Fruma Sarah, inventively portrayed as a ten-foot, green-faced apparition. As she sings her song, her voice reaches down into a lower register, suggesting it is either the reincarnation of Bea Arthur or the non-traditional casting of a male actor in the role always played by a woman. And beneath the layers of Mac make-up is indeed a man -- actor Sean Patrick Doyle -- pulling a vocal sleight-of-hand on the audience."
-Robert Nesti, Edge
There’s also a terrific “Dream” sequence, featuring... an appropriately scary Sean Patrick Doyle as the very imposing 12-foot tall Fruma-Sarah."
-Steven Stanley, Stage Scenes LA
"Also fun is Sean Patrick Doyle as the towering ghostly Fruma-Sarah."
-Pam Kragen, North County Times, San Diego
