Sarah has earned wonderful reviews in Chicago for her performance as Carla Tortelli in CHEERS Live! Colin Douglas of Chicago Theatre Review declares, “Sarah Sirota is the best incarnation of her TV original. As Carla, Ms. Sirota looks and sounds exactly like Rhea Perlman, the actress who created this role. With the same diminutive stature, which she uses to her advantage, Ms. Sirota is a tower of power and passion and is responsible for a good many of the laughs” and Chris Jones of The Chicago Tribune names her as a "skilled character player, exceptionally adept at walking that tricky line between impersonation and original interpretation." Sarah earned similarly outstanding reviews from the Chicago Sun Times, Chicago Daily Herald, Showbiz Chicago, Chicago Critic and Around the Town Chicago. To read more, click on the links above.
