INTO THE WOODS

INTO THE WOODS

Saint Vincent Summer Theatre "Daina Michelle Griffith's Baker's Wife is a perfect balance between comedy and drama, keeping genuine heart in a character who can, all too often, become the frustrated sitcom wife." Greg Kerestan, Broadway World

The Last Match

Pittsburgh Public Theater "Daina Michelle Griffith scores laughs and pro-feminist applause as saucy maid, Smeraldina." Isaac Crow, Pittsburgh in the Round

BLITHE SPIRIT

BLITHE SPIRIT

PICT Classic Theatre "Griffith's Ruth is spectacular. The actor immerses herself in the role. It's little wonder why the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette crowned her Performer of the Year in 2013." Michael Buzzelli, 'Burgh Vivant

JACQUES BREL IS ALIVE AND WELL AND LIVING IN PARIS

JACQUES BREL IS ALIVE AND WELL AND LIVING IN PARIS

PICT Classic Theatre "Griffith has such a distinct voice, smooth and comforting while singing the more somber songs but that same voice will slap you in the face when she lays into a power ballad. She just kills it in 'My Death'" Mara E. Nadolski, Pittsburgh Stage Magazine

AMADEUS

AMADEUS

Pittsburgh Public Theater "Daina Michelle Griffith has a similar breadth in the smaller role of Mozart's canny wife, Constanze, ranging from sexual provocateur to victim." Christopher Rawson, Pittsburgh Post Gazette

THE ZERO HOUR

THE ZERO HOUR

off the WALL "Griffith excels in her multiple roles, getting things right, right down to the accents she’s required to pull off. She also has an ear for comedy, timing her lines just right and hitting the mark on appropriate gestures that are downright chuckle inducing." Dave Zuchowski, Pittsburgh Owl Scribe

COMPANY

Pittsburgh Public Theater "...with stand-outs Daina Michelle Griffith and Dan Krell as the pot smoking Jenny and David; Griffith extends her range once again." Ann Miner, Talkin' Broadway

PARADE

PARADE

Front Porch Theatricals "The show's real star is Daina Michelle Griffith, whose dynamic awakening as Frank's wife, Lucille, creates a flurry of action and hope. Griffith's Lucille is fearless and focused on winning her husband's freedom." Alice Carter, Pittsburgh Tribune Review

ALL MY SONS

ALL MY SONS

The REP, Pittsburgh Playhouse "Interesting, what propels the show's drama and growing tension is Griffith's performance as Ann Deever." Alice Carter, Pittsburgh Tribune Review

Next To Normal

Next To Normal

Carrnivale Theatrics "Griffith turned my heart inside out nearly two years ago, in Quantum Theatre's When The Rain Stops Falling, so she had her own tough act to follow last night, but she did not let me down. Daina's Diana doesn't so much run the gamut of emotions as she runs a gauntlet of them--careening from funny to tragic to sexy to deranged to no-nonsense like a bumper-car ride that never shuts off." Chris Rosella, Boring Pittsburgh

CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION

Pittsburgh Public Theater "Daina Michelle Griffith shows us the feeling soul trapped inside a gaudy, flirtatious castle." Christopher Rawson, Pittsburgh Post Gazette

HOW THE OTHER HALF LOVES

HOW THE OTHER HALF LOVES
