“Brava! Susan Hofflander has the voice of Jenny Tourel and the comic timing of Rosalind Russell.”

Leonard Bernstein

“The other hit tune of the show, the eponymous “Beauty and the Beast,” is a treacle-laden lyric with a leaden melody but Mrs. Potts (Susan Hofflander) delivers the song with sympathy and grace and director Brindisi wisely doesn’t try to stretch the moment.” ~ How Was The Show

“and as Mrs. Potts, the housekeeper turned teapot, Susan Hofflander has the countenance for counselling Belle to soothe the savage Beast, and a warmly emotive voice to do justice to the beloved title song.” ~ Talkin’ Broadway

“Mezzo-soprano Hofflander proved captivating in the role of Amahl’s mother. Her strong, present sound contains a gentle quality that worked well in the role.”

Elaine Schmidt

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel Bernstein

“Aside from Mrs. Potts herself (Angela Lansbury), there could be no better actress to play the motherly tea pot! Susan Hofflander’s maternal characterization of Mrs. Potts was loving yet stern, wise yet a bit slow and the perfect opposition to the tightly-wound Cogsworth and playboy-ish Lumiere. Her version of “Beauty and the Beast” was simple, elegant and left the audience wowed. Perhaps a favorite scene in the show was when the enchanted objects become real again and Chip runs into Mrs. Potts arms. She was warm, sweet and sincere.”

CBS Local

“The entertainers perform such diverse material as Gershwin’s The Man I Love, beautifully sung by mezzo-soprano Susan Hofflander”
