"As Sarah, Iris Beaumier sings a sublimely and reflective lullaby to her baby of "Your Daddy's Son," just the first time the audience will be held spellbound by her incredibly enthralling vocals that express emotions so deeply felt but so openly and often painfully expressed. When she and Coalhouse finally reunite through the magnetic power of his ragtime music, their "Wheels of a Dream" rings triumphantly with the hopes of every parent of every era and every race/nationality: "With the promise of happiness and the freedom he'll live to know ... our son will ride on the wheels of a dream.""

Eddie Reynolds Talkin' Broadway

"Josephine herself is splendidly portrayed by Iris Beaumier. A beaming presence, the actress has a fine voice with excellent range and control. Her open face telegraphs every emotion. Beaumier and/or Choreographer Kim Grier-Martinez clearly watched film on the protagonist. Performance movement is a bull’s eye. This Josephine poses, wiggles, jerks, and kicks and mugs with affinity to Ms. Baker. Oh those knees!"

Alix Cohen Woman Around the Town 

"It is so engaging to watch Iris Beaumier play Josephine Baker and show her multiple sides….Beaumier truly embodied the spirit of Josephine Baker; when she was nude during the musical, it was riveting to watch the energy she moved with as she beautifully recreated the intoxicating dances that Baker was known for."

"It doesn’t matter a bit during songs like “Wheels of a Dream,” as Coalhouse huddles close with his beloved Sarah (Iris Beaumier). Beaumier is a revelation as Sarah — witnessing her unearthing complex layers of a conflicted mother’s love in her solo “Your Daddy’s Son” is worth the price of admission alone."

Andrew Tarvers Aspen Times


"Anyone who has seen Beaumier as Sarah in “Ragtime” will be eager to hear more from her and, as expected, her big “Godspell” solo in “O, Bless the Lord, My Soul” is a soulful high point in the show."

Andrew Tarvers Aspen Times


"A goodly amount of physical comedy from all four of them, but particularly Beaumier and Trentalange, keep things perking right along – this isn’t a show with four singers just standing there snapping their fingers in unison."

Ann Pollack St. Louis Eats and Drinks


"The object of her indiscretions is Betty Jean with a delightful performance by Iris Beaumier. Her broken heart comes in the form of “Lipstick On Your Collar” in the first act and then another tragic romance in the second act leads to 'That’s When The Tears Start' and 'It’s My Party.'"

Steve Allen Stage Door St.Louis

"Iris Beaumier gives such a wide array of emotions through her facial expressions and body language – both comedic and dramatic at times. Some of her best moments come when she is trying to step out from behind Cindy Lou’s shadow."

Kevin Brackett Review STL 


"There are stronger entries, of course. Kirner rocks out in “Mr. Lee,” and Beaumier invests the cheery “I Only Want To Be With You” with a hint of genuine longing."

Judith Newmark St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Chiara Trentalange and Iris Beaumier, as Cindy Lou and Betty Jean, respectively, anchor the show and music. Their voices clear and true, they shine whether harmonizing or taking a lead."



"Junior musical theatre major Iris Beaumier’s Keera, a wholesome poindexter-type who somehow becomes one of the play’s most interesting characters, preaches about the power of prayer and family game night."

Ariel Hoffmaier The Tartan  


“The strained relationship between Maureen Johnson (Katrina Colletti) and Joanne Jefferson (Iris Beaumier) comes off beautifully in songs like "Take Me Or Leave Me." Colletti's over the top "Over the Moon" and Beaumier and Roate's "Tango Maureen" are among the show's highlights.”
