King of the Yees:

"Sylvia Kwan had me cackling in several of her roles, especially the stubborn liquor store owner."

"The other three actors seem to have a blast as they role juggle...Sylvia Kwan ably channels oddballs such as a surly liquor store owner."

"The supporting cast is especially strong. Sylvia Kwan and Jacob Yeh as Actors 1 and 2 take on multiple roles -- even a lion dance. Their scenes are fast-paced and hilarious."

Every other character in the show (which includes a multitude of Chinatown residents, a dragon, and even an ancient ancestor) are played by just three actors. Listed in the program as simply Actor 1 – Jacob Yeh, Actor 2 – Sylvia Kwan, Actor 3 – Nicholas Yenson. These three incredibly talented actors pull off one of the hardest feats in the world of theater: they make you forget that they are only three actors playing multiple roles."


"Nguyen is known for his strong female characters, and Tong is no exception. Kwan, who also shined in Water by the Spoonful at the Mark Taper Forum, gives Tong an edge that provides plenty of laughs without resorting to mugging."

"Kwan IS the self-described bitch Tong. Not your stereotypical Vietnamese girl in any way, Kwan's Tong makes for a great lust interest for Yen's Quang. These two have hot (and romantic) chemistry."

"Sylvia Kwan nails Tong’s pugnacious pluck and barreling bitchery..."

4,000 Miles:

"But the real scene-stealing supporting performance comes from Sylvia Kwan as Amanda, a young woman Leo brings home after a night on the town. Her manic portrayal of a party girl with big ambitions is hilarious, but it also highlights how directionless Leo has become.”

The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow:

"...the sizzling Sylvia Kwan..."

"...with an impressive breakout performance by Sylvia Kwan as Jenny, this B Street Theatre production is a fun-filled, thought-provoking wild ride of a trip..."

Peter and the Starcatcher:

"...Sylvia Kwan plays Molly, the aspiring starcatcher, with a charming precociousness..."

Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England:

"...and Sylvia Kwan shines as Andromeda, bursting with wacky, youthful exuberance yet still maintaining a believable emotional core and a kind of “out of the mouths of babes” prescience."

The Two Gentlemen of Verona:

"As Silvia, Sylvia Kwan is radiantly regal. But beware of her character's eventual temper, which Kwan fervently unleashes on Smith's Proteus, a comeuppance that resulted in shouts of acclamation from the hillside full of viewers."
