“Cooper has a naturalistic quality onstage; she’s striking without stealing attention and has a wonderful, moving breakdown towards the end of the play. You root for her and she never becomes 'cloying' or even worse 'adorkable'. She’s sassy, brassy, and even though she’s unsure of what her future should be, she’s confident enough in herself that you believe she’ll get there soon. “ - The Arts Wire Weekly
“I found Veronica Cooper's interpretation of the pensive, mostly sedentary Tess mesmerizing and cannily measured, quietly holding her own playing opposite Mr. Williamson's lithe, cat-like mania. She is a disarmingly naturalistic actor who exudes a Zen-like inner calm always under control no matter what Tess is saying or doing. It makes for a compellingly layered portrayal of tightly focused, impatient aimlessness.” - Broadway World
“I loved watching Veronica a lot, cause she, her performance was so... there was such a realism to all the characters like I felt like I knew versions of each of the characters and she was so incredibly funny but also kind of understated but super strong as a character.

“The most stellar aspect of Wake Up Call is undoubtedly how well the writing meshes with the chemistry of the actors. Cooper and Adam Thomas Smith’s dialogue so accurately captures the voice of this generation of characters that I felt like I was watching people I knew, worked with, and had gone to school with. Combine that with the truly wonderful performances by the cast and you end up with some of the most natural friendships and relationships I have seen on stage. ” - Theatre is Easy
