"Maid Marian Paroo ... is played by the placid period beauty that is Emily Rohm, one of Chicago theater's leading legitimate sopranos and one who simply must be seen and heard in this role. Indeed, if you close your eyes, you would swear that role originator Barbara Cook herself is in the room, so bright and pleasing is Rohm's Broadway soprano sound. Her acting is spot on, too, hitting the touchpoints of character progression nicely. Rohm is so good, one wonders what Broadway revival star Rebecca Luker could possibly have brought to the role that Rohm hasn't. If you know, please let me know."
-Paul Thompson - BroadwayWorld.com review of The Music Man
"Best of all, you get Emily Rohm's delightful Belle. Rohm, who has a formidable set of pipes, especially in the lower reaches, and a thoroughly charming presence, is among the very best young singers in Chicago theater. Rockwell clearly understands you don't want to mess with Belle, given that many in the audience come dressed as her. And watching the numerous little girls staring up at Rohm on Sunday afternoon, you could see by their faces that they were watching their fantasies come to life."
-Chris Jones - Chicago Tribune review of Beauty and the Beast
"Emily Rohm is enchanting -- full of fire and grace, impetuosity and vulnerability. And she fills every song ("Goodnight My Someone," "My White Knight," "Til There Was You") with her flawless golden soprano."
Hedy Weiss - Chicago Sun-Times review of The Music Man
"There certainly are no vocal limitations when it comes to Emily Rohm's Marian. Rohm sings the role beautifully and she invests with great fullness in the conclusionary climax."
-Chris Jones - Chicago Tribune review of The Music Man
"The first encounter between the beautiful imprisoned Johanna (Emily Rohm) and the handsome sailor Anthony (William Travis Taylor)... you get such a sudden and powerful dose of a young woman in desperate crisis that you half want to take to the stage and rescue her yourself from the slimy Judge Turpin... Those scenes involving Rohm and Taylor — and those who aid and thwart their mutual desire — are all the high points of this production."
-Chris Jones - Chicago Tribune review of Sweeney Todd
"The supporting roles are played ideally. As Johanna, Sweeney’s long-lost, caged bird of a daughter, the fresh, frantic, golden-voiced Emily Rohm is superb. And she is winningly matched by William Travis Taylor, who brings a similarly lustrous voice to the role of Anthony Hope, Johanna’s adoring suitor and a truly decent human being. The two are wholly irresistible, especially in “Kiss Me.”
-Hedy Weiss - Chicago Sun-Times review of Sweeney Todd
"As young lovers Anthony and Johanna, William Travis Taylor and Emily Rohm give remarkable performances; their chemistry is amplified by the technical prowess and emotional depth of their consecutive Act I solos."
-Oliver Sava - TimeOut Chicago review of Sweeney Todd
"Emily Rohm delivers the loveliest sounding Joanna heard to date, bringing beauty to an oftentimes-shrill role."

"And then there was Renee Matthews and Emily Rohm who give me chills (and tears) with "One More Kiss." I haven't heard that song performed so well... ever?"
