Unexpected Stage Company

...But Morrison, who boasts a presence that far outshines the rest of the cast, turns the action in unexpected ways

The ever-talented Emily Morrison takes on the role of strict, judgmental mother-in-law Hope...Unexpected Stage has produced another absolute triumph.

Rado, Duckworth, and Morrison give nuanced, strong performances. They work so well together that you find yourself mourning the what might have been had they been allowed to grow into a family.

...[Morrison's] subtle and honest interpretation of the character and her performance is effortlessly real... it is the most honest portrayal of disease, doubt and denial I’ve ever seen

Emily Morrison breathes life into this dying character in a way that will stay with the audience for a long time. Morrison never overplays this role. She brings the exact right amount of levity and gravity to Vivian Bearing’s character...a stunning performance

DC Metro Theater Arts

Morrison, much like her character, is a force on stage, never leaving the stage plus navigating the different stages of her character’s treatment and declining health; Morrison never waivers. There are beautiful moments of vulnerability and fear that contrast nicely with her confidence and sass from other parts of the show...her portrayal is exquisite.

...Their Madam is Mae (Emily Morrison), who could be your kindly great aunt except for her skill with a blade and her fierce determination to protect her girls. [It is ] no doubt a great entertainment value in watching these five fabulous actors having the time of their life as they breathe life into vibrant and unusual characters.  DC Metro Theater Arts

The cast is uniformly excellent in portraying the delicious individuality of each character. Emily Morrison is their madam, Mae, who manages her girls with a steady hand and motherly touch. “I am a business woman with the soul of a whore,” she declares. Morrison is also convincing when Mae begins to get confused and the other girls realize her mind is going – a heartbreaking scene

But Love Is My Middle Name!

Capital Fringe Festival, 2011

When Emily Love Morrison, the talented voice and mind behind But Love Is My Middle Name!, steps on to the stage, she’s packing more than just an acoustic guitar and a venti Starbucks latte. She’s also escorting her history, her vision, and a vibrant brand of story-telling sung in a key all her own. ..Unique, quirky, energetic, hilarious, and engaging. Morrison takes no prisoners with her striking form of narrative

DC Theatre Scene

…she’s very intuitive, with a supple feel for lyrics and, in time, an appealing atmosphere builds. She has some interesting stories about kicking around in New York and Los Angeles — Morrison has been acting and singing for a while, and she wrote a few of the wistful ballads she performs here — and her recollections are a grown-up combination of funny and poignant. The show is about learning to take the long view, which can be hard to do when you’re facing heartbreak.
