The best performances come from Murman…There's something undeniably powerful about Gerda setting out to find and rescue him (Kai), applying her unique style of innocent, unconditional love to assist her across a wide series of adventures.                                                      Talkin' Broadway. Matthew Murray

 From The Dim Sweet Light
Eryn's band 5j Barrow releases a New Album now available on iTUNES

…a rollicking, energetic glimpse into a collective of performers that click when they play together… Murmans infectious vocals...with a rich, even tone that drips like honey…
                                                                       Artist Spotlight, Indie Music                                                            

5j Barrow fuses the two seemingly contradictory styles into a sound that is decidedly folk but carries the excitement of rock. Murman's and Hite's voices blend together in delightful harmonies that appeal to the very soul in a way that the very best folk music does.
Artist Review, TUNES NEWS


…5j Barrow played two rousing sets to a packed house at Nighttown. The diversity of instrumentation, vocal styles, song pacing and narrative tendency of the lyrics all lent the show a certain contemporary off-Broadway song-cycle vibe…  Murman spent 18 months in the cast of Duncan Sheik's Spring Awakening and as 5j's principal lyricist, she leans on the same earthy/spiritual imagery found in that show. Glowing harmonies galore, folks.
       Scene Magazine, Sam Allard

ERYN will take the lead as GERDA in a World Premiere of a
New Musical 
THE SNOW QUEEN at the San Jose Rep Theatre.      
This new adaptation includes 
an 
original Pop/Rock score.


...Eryn Murman plays the spunky Gerda with energy and conviction. There's a wonderful see-through-the-curtain earnestness to her characterization...

                                                                    Edge On the Net. Robert Sokol
 
...the ensemble is brilliant. Murman is positively radiant as our intrepid heroine, in a role that seems made for her... the overall spectacle is fabulous with superb singing, acting...
...led by standouts... Eryn Murman... an energetic cast soars to new heights with ethereal high notes and memorable ballads.


... Gerda's journey is the best part of the showAlong with masterful acting and beautiful vocal tone, Murman was on stage in almost every scene representing a rainbow of emotions, and managed to stay in character.


...Eryn Murman who was excellent as Wendla in SJ Rep's "Spring Awakening", is excellent here, too, as Gerda.

THEATER REVIEWS LIMITED by David Roberts and Joseph Verlezza, Chief Critics


...The three actors, Suzy Jane Hunt, Eryn Murman and Brittany Parker brilliantly navigate
the stage with precise, purposeful and intelligent choreographed movement.  Alone they are remarkable, each striking a different chord, amazingly able to morph into characters with the slightest facial nuance or physical shift in posture.  Together as one, they inhabit the souls of their characters and their hearts beat with the rhythm of spoken word.  All
 are truly captivating...

                                       
                                                       

BACKSTAGE  Reviewed by Ron Cohen

...In expressionistic mode, the play has three actors simultaneously portraying Beth. Suzy Jane Hunt, Eryn Murman, and Brittany Parker work together in breathtaking synchronicity, sharing the interior monologue that makes up much of text.

Spring Awakening: An extraordinary rock music production by the San Jose Rep 
...Most notable for me was Eryn Murman as Wendla, capturing our sympathy, emotions and attention from the very first scene to the very end notes.

BAY TIMES at Bay Times 
Wow! San Jose Rep Scores Big with Spring Awakening ...Eryn Murman partners well with Hite as the curious Wendla, performing with nuance and nerve. Her voice has a liquid velvet quality that carries surprising strength. The seduction scene with Wendla and Melchior was superbly and tastefully done, filled with all the necessary conflicting emotions.
