It's not just that Way has a voice with extraordinary range and power, she also manages to capture the essence of Dolly Parton, a star for over five decades. Leisa Way is spectacular in Rhinestone Cowgirl. All I can say is: What a band! What a show! What a lady!"
The Morrisburg Leader

Country Music Jukebox, Germany
"Playhouse audiences packed the house this Spring when Leisa Way and her incredible 5-piece band, The Wayward Wind Band, hit the stage with their popular live concert, Rhinestone Cowgirl, of Dolly Parton’s greatest hits. 'People filled the place for every show,' said Artistic Director Donnie Bowes, 'and we knew that we were going to have to book a return engagement. There's nothing like a stage full of talented musicians doing what they do best — creating a sensational and dynamic concert right there in front of you!"
Cornwall Tourism
"You could literally feel the Playhouse seats bouncing to the great and much-loved Campbell tunes that Solomon delivered, one after another."
The Morrisburg Leader
""You might not see yourself as a big time fan of country music, but Leisa Way's new production, Country Jukebox, making its debut at Upper Canada Playhouse, will surely go a long way to converting you. The show bursts from the gate with the Country Jukebox 'overture' and hits the ground running. Backed up by the incredible Wayward Wind band, and supported on lead vocals by Aaron Solomon and Randall Kempf (whose individual and collective talents are stunning) singer Leisa Way delivers a show for all musical tastes.
The Morrisburg Leader
"Rhinestone Cowgirl: A Tribute to Dolly Parton, starring Leisa Way and The Wayward Wind, has become such a runaway hit that Theatre Orangeville has added an extra matinee performance on Sept. 25."
Wellington Advertiser
"Sudbury loves Dolly Parton. Sales have been so brisk for the run of Rhinestone Cowgirl: A Tribute to Dolly Parton, that the Sudbury Theatre Centre has convinced Leisa Way, the star of the concert, to add a matinee."
Sudbury Star
"Way's Dolly Parton show is more than just another tribute concert. She sings Dolly's songs, and then tells anecdotes and facts about Dolly's life between numbers….Way brought her popular Patsy Cline show to VPP last year, but this year's tribute to Dolly is even more entertaining and provides a wonderful opportunity to showcase Way's amazing vocal talent and comedic skills."
Entertain This Thought, London
"The real magic lies in hearing Way sing Dolly's songs….simply leaves the audience breathless when she sings one of Parton’s greatest song-writing triumphs, "I Will Always Love You."
Seaway News, Cornwall, ON
"No one has come as close as Way in emulating the essence, the voice and the passion of the country music legend…. Way causes shivers with her grandiose voice."
Banner Review, 2005
"Leisa Way, starring in Sweet Dreams: A Tribute to Patsy Cline, is a powerhouse of a singer and entertainer. Although a tiny person, Way dominates the stage, filling every corner of the theatre with her rich, vibrant voice. And if ever an actor could be said to be "channelling" the late, much loved Patsy Cline, then that actor is unquestionably Way."
Seaway News
"Way is exceptional in the title role, erupting onto the stage in a bright red, fringed country outfit, complete with cowboy hat, and captivating the audience right from the beginning as she tells the story of Cline and her rise to stardom. With an incredible vocal range and musical talent, Way is at one point dancing across the stage to a fast, country tune, and then bringing her rich, vibrant voice to bear on a slow, moving ballad."
Saugeen Times
"Way's strong, heartfelt vocals evoke the kind of deep emotional response that was the hallmark of Cline's own performances. Songs like "I Fall To Pieces," "She's Got You," and "Crazy" still have the power to break your heart. But the show offers much more than hurtin' songs….Leisa Way and The Wayward Wind delivered the goods in full measure."
The Sarnia Observer
"Sweet Dreams: A Tribute to Patsy Cline is a beautifully staged, expertly lit production. However, it is the diminutive Leisa Way who gives the show it's soul. Completely at ease with her back-up musicians, able to charm the audience as much with her personality as her extraordinary voice, Way brings the spirit and the music of Patsy Cline to life for all of us."
Morrisburg Leader
"Seldom off the stage (except for some striking costume changes) during the entire concert, Way is the exuberant focal point of Country Jukebox. Her singing voice is a powerful and versatile instrument. Whether she is singing alone on stage, or harmonizing with Solomon and Kempf, her range and energy are phenomenal."
The Leader, Mo'burg
"A sensational concert"
The Clarington, Toronto
