Atlanta Reviews for Don't Dress for Dinner
"But, the real revelation of this cast is Shelli Delgado's multi-faceted portrayal of the cook Suzette. Required to be a different person to everyone in the cast, she suffuses the role with buckets of charm and sex appeal, grounding her portrayal in a character who believably jumps "through all the hoops" those behaving badly put up for her. A member Aurora's apprentice company, Ms. Delgado is perhaps the most inexperienced member of the cast, but she "holds her own" with her talented co-stars, and brings an innocence (NOT naïveté) to the story that is moving and effective."
-Brad Rudy for Atlanta Theatre Buzz
"But, wonder of wonders, a veritable star is born in the delectable performance of newcomer Shelli Delgado as Suzette, the cunning young cook they hire for a swanky soiree. A member of Aurora’s apprentice acting company, she puts her more experienced cast mates to shame with a refreshing charm and ease, essentially making off with the show in much the same way that Suzette cashes in on the others by agreeing to play different parts in their sundry subterfuges.
Against mainly laborious odds, Delgado registers as a promising talent who single-handedly seizes and rules the day — right down to a legitimate French accent that’s tres bien."
-Bert Osborne [The Atlanta Journal-Constitution]
"Lively and entertaining, the cast immediately charmed — even as Roxy Hart (Shelli Delgado) was being charged with the murder of her ex-lover. A natural showstopper, Delgado pulls off a Chicago accent better than most actors on television."
- Meg Goggans for The Red and Black
"Getting to see her grow into the character progressively, I'm just like 'oh, it's so awesome'. So if you see it for any reason, see it for all the hard work that Shelli's done."
-Jennifer Latimore on film interview for UGA's Chicago
