IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU (Mimsy/Aunt Sheila) Out of Box Theatre, Atlanta

Eric Lang and Eileen Howard, double-cast as workers at the wedding venue and as quirky relatives of the bride, add gobs and gobs of comedy to both sets of roles.

Eric Lang and Eileen Howard are a total hoot as Albert's minions (and a few other characters).

MRS SCHRODINGER'S CAT (Judith), New York International Fringe Festival

Landlady Judith is the strongest of the bunch. She's quirky, lovely, and someone you'd want to sit in the heat with. Eileen Howard had an immeasurable heart to give.

Howard makes the woefully naive Judith uproariously hilarious at times.                            Theater Pizzazz

​A NEW BRAIN (Mother), Gallery Players

Eileen Howard and Robin Christopherson are wonderful as the two wives who plot Falstaff's well-deserved comuppance....

Robin Christopherson and Eileen Howard as Mistresses Page and Ford, respectively, are just delightful to watch.                                                                                                                                  ​

​DEAF DAY (Mother), 2Co's Cabaret (Shadowbox Live):
​Especially good is "Deaf Day"…in which Howard nails the range of emotions felt by the mother of a shy child with a hearing impairment.

​THE SISTERS ROSENSWEIG (Gorgeous) Gallery Players

Her most recent coup was her stunning portrayal of Gorgeous ….Combining riotous humor with lump-in-throat pathos, Howard gave some scenes that are often smothered in stereotype an emotional panorama that was at once larger-than-life and completely life-like. electrifying impact on theater audiences.                                                                                                                                                                                                   Columbus Alive


​BLUE PLATE SPECIAL (Della), Metro Music Theatre
Eileen Howard's warm, earthy diner owner is the show's salvation, making the other actors' quircky flights of fancy even funnier.

​The Columbus Dispatch ​

Eileen Howard gives a nicely restrained performance as Della, owner of the Tennessee diner where the action takes place....Musical highlights include Howard's I'm Going to Miss Those Tennessee Nights.                                                                                                                                 The Other Paper
