Susan Butterfield in ROCK 'N' ROLL REDEMPTION at Seven Angels Theater- Waterbury, CT
"The highlight of the show though is Strider, who electrifies the stage when she is on. Once she comes onstage as Susan, she gives the show a much-needed shot in the arm to invigorate Dion and the plot with a bit of passion and humanity."
– Journal Inquirer
"Anna Laura Strider (Mrs. Van Buren in 'Intimate Apparel' at Playhouse on Park) was lovely in her 7A debut as the girlfriend and eventual wife of Dion. This young actor showed off her beautiful singing voice on her solo of "The You I Know" and pretty much lit up the stage whenever she was on it."
