"Huge ovations go to salon owner Truvy, played by an already respected Winni P performer, the lovely Candace Clift. We knew this girl could act, but not on crutches due to a recently broken ankle...and wait for this...she can actually "do hair." I wish she'd been around for my prom."
Jane Bergeron, The Weirs Times & The Cocheco Times, 8/25/11
"As Truvy, Candace Clift provides a study in contrasts; owner of the beauty shop where these six women congregate, she's a loud, brash, fast-talking broad, keeping her ear to the ground and eager for gossip and scandal to spice up her days. Conversely, she knows when to shut up and listen when the situation calls for it, and Clift strikes a fine balance between these two aspects of Truvy.
"Clift also deserves special mention; an accident two days before opening night forced her to negotiate the stage in a cast and with crutches; the manner in which Clift handles herself under these conditions made it seem that the handicap was written in. Well done. "
