Her love of theatre has lead her to star in several productions, such as: the Broadway National Tour of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, receiving glowing reviews as sassy, brassy American tourist Muriel Banks - directed by Phil McKinley and choreographed by Vince Pesce, the Off-Broadway production of Jason Robert Brown’s Songs for a New World as Woman 2 at The American Actor's Theatre in NYC - the production marked the show’s highly anticipated return to New York, thirteen years after its debut, and in the national tour of SPANK! The Fifty Shades Parody, receiving rave reviews as the deliciously wacky and somewhat lewd writer EB Janet to sold out audiences throughout the U.S. and Canada. In Chicago, Sole appeared opposite Patti LuPone as the sultry and devilish Dolly Tate in a staged production of Annie Get Your Gun – directed by Lonny Price and Musical Director Paul Gemignani conducting The Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Ravinia. The Chicago Sun-Times, Talkin’ Broadway, and other publications gave Sole favorable reviews, with comments like, “Suzanne Sole nearly stole the show as the scheming Dolly Tate.”
Since in Chicago, Suzanne has appeared in on-camera and voice over commercials -including a highlight for her when she played a kissing popcorn vendor in Playstation’s MLB ‘Cubs Win” filmed at Wrigley Field. Sole also performed at The Venetian in Las Vegas, as well as at The Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, appearing in a live comedy show for The McDonald’s Corporation.
