"An amazing, honest, wonderful performance" -- Scott Heim, Mysterious Skin


"A lot of actors would be uneasy singing Tammy Wynette's 'Stand By Your Man'
while on their hands and knees, wearing a dog collar and chained to a kitchen
table in a doublewide trailer in Texas.  Kerry Perdue isn't one of those
actors." -- Back Stage


"She has great instincts." -- Michael Tabb, Troy, The Uncatchable Cowgirl Bandits of Notthingham Texas

"Kerry Perdue gives us a lisping eccentric...''like Nicki in Big Love...act one with its wonderful women is funny." -- OC Weekly

"Audacious." -- OC Weekly

"She's the best." -- Thelonious Monk Jr.


"Excllent wanted to strangle Eileen T'Kaye and Tom Shelton for cattiness and obnoxiousness which means they aced their roles while you wondered how in the world Pellegrino and Perdue, another adorable couple, like a morning moon to the sun of Griggs and West, ever got to the subject of s-e-x." -- James Scarborough

"...charming, revealing, again and again a fine sense of humor, excellently chosen and stated.  Filled with the artist's marvelous ear and creative imagination.  Innumerable glorious observations."  -- Grammy winner Shelley Berman on A Spoonful of Black Widow
