"This constant flux has molded Phoenix into a self-described gypsy who can hiss on a bluesy duet cover of “Tennessee Whiskey” in one breath, follow that with an on-the-spot cover of Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us” without missing a word, and finish the show with a sincere original acoustic ballad like “As Long As You’re Home” — all while fle
"This constant flux has molded Phoenix into a self-described gypsy who can hiss on a bluesy duet cover of “Tennessee Whiskey” in one breath, follow that with an on-the-spot cover of Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us” without missing a word, and finish the show with a sincere original acoustic ballad like “As Long As You’re Home” — all while flexing her comedic muscle during stage banter in between songs."
"Queenie was a bombshell in every aspect when played by leading actress Josephine Phoenix. A performance more polished, raw, powerful, subtle, and true than any regional theatre deserves- let alone a conservatory. Phoenix' soaring voice grows through the show, gaining power and pain, along with one of the most wrenching characterizations
"Queenie was a bombshell in every aspect when played by leading actress Josephine Phoenix. A performance more polished, raw, powerful, subtle, and true than any regional theatre deserves- let alone a conservatory. Phoenix' soaring voice grows through the show, gaining power and pain, along with one of the most wrenching characterizations in recent memory. It seems that every breath Phoenix takes imbues her with the strengths and weaknesses that plague Queenie, driving the show with unparalleled charisma. Phoenix is birthing a once in a lifetime performance for Rodaz in each number, a mad splash of excellence in a production that has no shortage."
"Actress Josephine Phoenix, who plays Estefan’s mother outstandingly, provides audiences with a range of emotions. However, it’s the notable hospital scene following the bus crash when she shines and has everyone fighting back tears during her performance of If I Never Got To Tell You, with son-in-law Emilio."
In 2021 Josephine joined the cast of "On Your Feet", playing Gloria Fajardo, Gloria Estefan's mother, with Prather Productions. Performing 8 to 9 shows a week, surpassing over 100 shows, she delved into not only the stamina and discipline of what it takes to keep up with her craft, but also explored themes such as motherhood immigration and redemption. Gloria Fajardo possessed such an unwavering strength that Josephine was inspired to grow in so many ways not only as an actor but as a human.
