Tara Pacheco

CW's Two Sentence Horror Stories

Squirm (201) 2019 

"Tara Pacheco makes Keisha’s descent into paranoia and body horror completely believable and deeply distressing to watch."

"...her aching performance is perfectly scaled, so big that you think she might burst."

"Tara Pacheco is a graceful and ingenious Sally Hemings, trying to make the best of her situation."

Richard Connema | Talking Broadway

Thomas and Sally, 2017

Nominated best principle actress in a play by the Bay Area Theater Critics Circle

"Tara Pacheco from New York is outstanding as Sally Hemings. She plays the role as a childlike young woman."

“Thomas and Sally” sparkles with great roles, including the subtle portrayal of Sally Hemings by Tara Pacheco, who brings individuality, reflection, and grace to the role. Her Sally deserves a play to herself.

Barry Horwitz | Theatrius Blog

"Bradshaw and director Minadakis…guaranteed I could walk away with more positive things to write about by ‘casting' Tara Pacheco as a charming, forward-thinking Sally"

The Mysteries, 2014 

"Look for … Ms. Pacheco... on stages all over New York.”

Suzanna Bowling | Times Square Chronicle

"The performers [are] as comfortable and convincing with farce as they are playing tragedy.  It is also fascinating to contemplate the mental and emotional gymnastics that each performer of The Bats (the resident acting company of The Flea) must have undergone to ensure that each character maintains the same internal psychological throughline when they appear in different plays by very different authors.

The Winter's Tale, 2013

Pacheco especially shone, both as a powerful queen and a woman fallen from grace, moving the audience to tears with her passionate yet controlled speech during her trial
