Ragtime at Bristol Riverside Theatre
. . . I want to mention Sarah J. Gafgen who plays Emma Goldman. Gafgen is spectacular portraying Goldman. She seamlessly shows Goldman’s fiery passion, and her vocals throughout the production are solid." ~ TheatreSensation.com
"Also memorable is Sarah Gafgen as Emma Goldman. Her pugnacious delivery during “The Night that Goldman Spoke at Union Square” is a spot-on portrayal of the riot-inciting activist. " ~ Tickettoentertainment.com

Vanities by Jack Heifner - Hedgerow Theatre
"In all three acts of “Vanities,” two played before intermission, and one after, Gafgen takes a calmer, more maternal approach to her part . . . Gafgen truly shines in the third act. . . Gafgen plays her role with simplicity and dignity." ~ Neal Zoren, NealsPaper.com
"Gafgen is terrific as Kathy. By far, Kathy is the most sensible and the glue that holds the crew together. Gafgen’s Kathy is somewhere between Joanne and Mary. Gafgen excellently provides a bridge between the friends. Her character is sympathetic toward Joanne even as she leans more toward Mary’s more liberal views." ~ Christina Perryman, Delco News Network
Vanities by Jack Heifner - Quince Productions
"Gafgen's earnest, touching performance leads a tremendous cast. In successive scenes, her bright smile dims a bit further, her once-hopeful yearning diminishes to the lyrics of the Rolling Stones' 'Mother's Little Helper.'" (Click to read the full review).
