Ella Nora ON STAGE
Everyone's a critic...
AS SARAGHINA in NINE
"Saraghina (Eleonore Thomas) delivered such a barefooted performance so Italian earthy [one] could visualize her stomping grapes on the hillside."
Greer Firestone - Stage Magazine
AS MADAME DE LA GRANDE BOUCHE (THE WARDROBE)
IN BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
"Eleonore S. Thomas as the operatic singing wardrobe lives up to her name of
Madame de la Grande Bouche (it means ‘she of the big mouth,’
or perhaps, more politely in Thomas’ case, the great mouth)."
David Appleford - Valley Screen and Stage
AS IOWA HOUSEWIFE IN MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL
"The funniest of the four has to be Thomas as the wife of an Iowa funeral director...Even without lines, Thomas can garner a laugh at times with everything from a lip quiver or acknowledgement and acceptance of her plus-size body."
David Burke - Quad City Times
"Thomas’ bit on squeezing her ample body into a teensy weenie see-through black teddy has everyone in stitches. She proves you don’t have to be a Size 2 to knock the socks off an audience."
Di Saggau - The River Weekly News
"Eleonore Thomas practically steals the show as she struggles to get into a too-small piece of lacy lingerie while wearing an 'I HEART New York' T-shirt. The wordless sequence got bigger, more authentic laughs than anything else on the night"
Chris Silk - Naples News
AS CONNIE in WAISTWATCHERS THE MUSICAL NATIONAL TOUR
"Eleonore S. Thomas as Connie, whose vocals have power and character,
offers the best pop voice in the cast... This multi-talented performer is especially hilarious
in a way that adds brightness to a show that is quick-witted and fast-paced.
It’s no coincidence that the two best solo moments of the production both belong to Thomas,
who steals the show with her comedic "If I Were a Size Two" and a brassy "I'm Fat and I'm O.K."
She clearly emerges as the audience favorite."
