Hats off to the National and a 5-star cast for delivering the mother of all triumphs[…] The acting is first-rate, with particularly fine work from Perez as the mercurial Veronica…  *Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard

...Flor De Liz Perez is eminently watchable as Veronica, who masks her soft heart with a hilariously thorny exterior…     *Steve Dinneen, City A.M.

Raucous[…]the biggest blast in Rufus Norris’s National Theatre tenure so far[…] Perez’s Veronica sees through everyone, yet stays prey to her own addictive urges.                                  *Dominic Maxwell, The Times

The cast are just right: Flor De Liz Perez packs a formidable punch as the perfidious Veronica…                                  *Dominic Cavendish, The Daily Telegraph

Blisteringly funny, raucously rude and unexpectedly tender[…] There’s great work from Flor De Liz Perez as damaged wildcat Veronica…                                                                 *Sarah Hemming, The Financial Times

…[Veronica] a seductive Puerto Rican[…] is given a vibrant fidgetiness by Flor De Liz Perez, who gesticulates as if she were boxing with her own expletives.      *Susannah Clapp, The Observer

Perez inhabits her role with poise and dignity, struggling to keep a sunny demeanor even as she begins to lose her footing.                                                 *Zachary Stewart,  Theater Mania 

As Xiomara, Flor De Liz Perez wins us over with her sparkling personality and thousand-watt smile, but she also becomes a master manipulator of her so-called friends in order to obtain a coveted promotion. The scene in which the two ladies face off, baring months of stifled fury, is one of the play’s most satisfying.       *David Barbour, Lighting and Sound America

All the performances deserve A grades but Perez and Walker get A-pluses for the multilayered colors they convey…For her part, Perez brilliantly expresses Xiomara’s inner conflict about having to betray her friendships in order to do what’s expected of her.                                                                         *Samuel Leiter, Theatre’s Leiter Side

The inner turmoil of Xiomara gave Flor De Liz Perez to run the gamut. Having empathy surrounding each individual character, it’s easy to play Xiomara as the play’s antagonist but Perez’s complete performance allowed you to understand just why she did everything she did.                             *Theater in the Now, Michael Block

The actors are a real treat to watch, led by opposing forces Flor De Liz Perez and Pernell Walker. Perez takes Xiomara from a devil-may-care entry level employee to a mightily conflicted young professional and we feel her pain… Brathwaite’s direction exposes successive layers of the characters’ turmoil in the cast’s strong performances.                                                                                 *Molly Grogan, Exeunt Magazine

The petite Perez shows Xiomara’s innate strength, intelligence and good instincts, and how they are corrupted by a system that views delays from subways and forgetting office keys as major character flaws.       *Edward Karam, Off Off Online

  

SEVEN SPOTS ON THE SUN 
by Martín Zimmerman / directed by Weyni Mengesha – Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, NYC

Flor De Liz Perez, seen only a few months ago to good advantage in Dolphins and Sharks at Labyrinth Theater Company, captures the sheer determination with which Mónica believes she can drag Luis back to life.  *David Barbour, Lighting and Sound America

A young couple in a different village, Monica (Flor De Liz Perez) and Luis (Sean Carvajal), are also coping with the war and its consequences…Monica has an enormous character arc, which Perez carries on her fragile shoulders with no visible effort.  *Asya Danilova, OnStage Blog

Several of the performances are also quite memorable: Perez brings believable desperation to Mónica, especially when she is pleading for the life of her child.  *Zachary Stewart, Theater Mania

Flor De Liz Perez as Mónica and Sean Carvajal as Luis are suitably fiery and passionate.  *Darryl Reilly, Theater Scene

Flor De Liz Perez, as his wife Monica, is similarly heart-wrenching. *Thomas Burns Scully, PopDust

The play’s famous reunion scene—between Pericles (Raffi Barsoumian) and his lost daughter, Marina (Flor De Liz Perez)—will be worth the modest price of admission… *Adam Feldman, Time Out NY

Perez works well as Pericles’ daughter, showing just the right amount of youthful innocence coupled with conviction and faith. *Judd Hollander, The Epoch Times

That (Raffi) Barsoumian and Perez play the loss and the hopelessness so fully, and then give themselves over just as completely to resulting joy, is what makes the exchange a wonder of feeling and theatre, perhaps the crowning moment of the Mobile Shakespeare Unit to date[…] Perez, creates a Marina who’s fetchingly innocent but not remotely stupid… *Matthew Murray, Talkin’ Off Broadway

Flor De Liz Perez, as her prim minion and Bible-thumping sister Luciana, produces a warmth unseen by the very unlikeable tribe. *Marcus Scott, EDGE NY

The acting here is sassy and smart. The seven-member ensemble —Matt Citron, Bernardo Cubria, Flor De Liz Perez, Christina Pumariega, Lucas, Caleb Rooney, David Ryan Smith, and Zuzanna Szadkowski —know how to tug belly laughs from the audience.  *Deirdre Donovan, Curtain Up

 Flor De Liz Perez presents a beautiful, tightly wound Luciana who believably needs someone to help her come into her own. *Matthew Murray, Talkin’ Broadway

The boys from Syracuse wear baseball caps (and occasionally lapse into Spanish) while the Ephesians wear cowboy hats and speak with a Texas twang. It’s perfectly clear to the audience, but never to the people of Ephesus, including the wealthier Antipholus’ wife, Adriana (Christina Pumariega), and her Bible-thumping sister Luciana (a delightfully prissy Flor De Liz Perez).  *Zachary Stewart, TheaterMania

[As Andromeda] Flor De Liz Perez mixes unbounded enthusiasm with the requisite sincerity when oozing the line “I love alternative kinship structures.” […] Perez keeps us from mocking her. She takes the character so seriously that we — and Greer — must, too.   *Peter Filichia, The Star-Ledger
