My theatrical resume is available here:


The Underclassman (The Duke on 42nd Street, NYC) 

"The Underclassman is first-class entertainment... Piper Goodeve is terrific in the second banana role of Ginevra's friend Marie. Her "Let's Don't" duet with Edmund Wilson is irresistible. ” CurtainUp

"With On The Town selling out down the block, there’s a nifty little homage to Comden and Green’s Brunhilde Esterhazy–the less than pretty girl with the snappy patter.  In The Underclassman she’s “Bug”(Piper Goodeve), the debutante’s sidekick.  She and “Bunny” Wilson (Billy Hepfinger) do a clever little number–Let’s Don’t–near the close of the first act that serves up that knowing, second banana sensibility and the audience loves it…and them."  - Front Row Center

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Thousand Islands Playhouse, Canada)

"Piper Goodeve is a lovely and vulnerable Olive..."  - NCPR 

"As Olive, Piper Goodeve was touching as the kid whose parents are never there for her." - The Kingston Whig-Standard 

"One of the most poignant moments of the production is the “I Love You Song”, performed by characters Olive (Piper Goodeve) and her parents (Michael-Lamont Lytle and Kristin Galer). Sensitively staged and performed, it adds a wonderful layer of depth to the overall show." - A Fresh News Start 


Caroline Or Change (Syracuse Stage)

"Everyone in the cast is first rate. Voices soar singing Tesori’s score...As Rose, the step-mother, Piper Goodeve is graciously awkward, bright and brittle, sympathetic and strong." -syracuse.com 


Anne of Green Gables (Off-Bway, Lucille Lortel)

"Piper Goodeve is sensational." - Talkentertainment.com 

"...a winning performance by Piper Goodeve as Anne." - New York Post

"Piper Goodeve captures Anne's effusive enthusiasm...the casting is impressive, particularly the three principals." - New York Times

"This is Goodeve's show and it's uncanny how she reproduces the Sturm und Drang of the turn-of-the-century pre-teen without being completely ridiculous." - Edge NYC

"Piper Goodeve makes an ebullient Anne, fiercely embodying both her irrepressible hopes and her melodramatic tirades. Her giddy solo "I Can Stay," in which she celebrates Marilla's decision to keep her at Green Gables, is a triumph of voice, personality, and athleticism. The little girls seated around me let out contented sighs at their favorite Anne moments they clearly embraced this live and rambunctious version of their heroine. "- Off-Off Online

"[Piper Goodeve] is a charmer who shows just about every emotion that a young, confused girl could ever go through. And then some. Piper Goodeve has a long and luminous career ahead of her." - Talkentertainment.com   
See entire article here: 

"Piper Goodeve is touching and funny as Anne." - Associated Press

"Piper Goodeve as the title character, Anne, is pure enchantment...Without a sensational actress to portray Anne, the show-- no matter how well written as is this production-- wouldn't work for five seconds let alone ninety minutes. And Piper Goodeve is sensational." - Talkentertainment.com

"a plucky performance by the talented Piper Goodeve." - CurtainUp

"As Anne, Goodeve looks like someone Maurice Sendak might have drawn had he ever illustrated the children's classic. ...she exudes about as much pluck as could be wished for by anyone who loves the Montgomery book." -Theatermania

"Piper Goodeve, who demonstrated her excellent comic timing in Peter Mills' The Pursuit of Persephone, is winsome and endearing as Anne, growing stronger in the role as the character gets older." - Broadwayworld.com


The Fantasticks (Merrimack Rep, Lowell, MA)

“Luisa, is played brilliantly by Piper Goodeve… You'll remember these wonderful, timeless tunes. But the one thing you will never forget is Piper Goodeve who, last night, WAS Luisa at her best. She was the perfect giddy teenager who, through the trials and tribulations that love presents, turns into a woman before our eyes.” - www.pmpnetwork.com

“Her voice -- sweetly resonant in such numbers as "Much More" -- evokes the excitement and passion of youth, seeking adventure and being anything but ordinary. The performance of the classic "Soon It's Gonna Rain" is a dazzler.” - The Lowell Sun

 “Goodeve's voice is simply lovely and the joy in it is matched by her very expressive face when she sings.”  - Broadwayworld.com

“Piper Goodeve as Luisa beautifully captures young love and the self-absorption it often involves. One of the most moving scenes in the show involves Luisa watching Matt being beaten and tortured in silhouette until El Gallo insists she look through an elaborate party mask which makes it all seem fun and exciting. It's a beautifully acted scene…” - Metro West Daily News

Oklahoma! (Hangar Theatre, Ithaca, NY)
"Piper Goodeve makes a strong impression as Laurey."
- Mr. Teachout for the Wall Street Journal

"One reason this production feels new is that three leads are cast somewhat against type. Piper Goodeve is Curley's match as the independent-thinking Laurey; she shines vocally, as in their terrific duet "People Will Say We're in Love."
- Ithaca Journal

"The casting in "Oklahoma!" is phenomenal, thanks to casting director Alan Filderman. Joanna Krupnick (Ado Annie) and Goodeve (Laurey) both shone brightly among the giant cast of last year's production of "Hair" at the Hangar; here, they work together seamlessly and seize the spotlight when their turn comes."
- Ithaca Times

"Goodeve, blessed with a soaring, almost Viennese, soprano, can complete for the versatility prize. Last summer she was Sheila in Hangar's production of Hair, for which she was nominated for a Syracuse New Times Syracuse Area Live Theater Award." - Syracuse New Times

HAIR (Hangar Theatre, Ithaca, NY)

"Sheila, played by Goodeve, is a pretty girl with a vigorous voice."- The Ithaca Times

"Piper Goodeve, as Berger's girlfriend Sheila, exhibits head-turning vocals on 'I Believe in Love,' 'Easy to be Hard,' and 'Good Morning Starshine.'"- Post-Standard Critics at www.syracuse.com

"Piper Goodeve has a powerhouse voice as Sheila, the anti-war activist."- The Ticket (Ithaca Journal)

The Pursuit of Persephone (Connelly Theater, NYC)

"Piper Goodeve holds her own as Ginevra's sensible sidekick." -The New York Times

"Piper Goodeve, as the supporting romantic comedienne, conjures images of Andrea Martin with her flawless comic timing, and her awkward chemistry with David Abeles' smart and wry Edmund Wilson is utterly endearing." -Broadwayworld.com


"The pluck and talkativeness of the loose cannon Anne as performed might remind you of Sutton Foster's performance of the determined and sometimes giddy Jo in the musical adaptation of another girl-friendly classic novel, Little Women." -talkinbroadway

Narrating on a regular basis for Audible Studios, as well as from a home studio with an experienced engineer, I have done over 80 titles, voiced hundreds of characters & used numerous dialects.  I am honored to be a 2015 Audie Award Winner and a proud member of SAG-AFTRA. Three samples are below (just click the image).  Samples of all my titles can be found on Audible.com 



                                                 with my husband and fellow Audie Winner Gabriel Vaughan

"Piper Goodeve is the main narrator for this tale, and I sort of feel like I may have a crush on her voice."- Bob Reiss, The Guilded Earlobe 

"Piper did a tremendous job capturing Allison's humor and tone. It's almost insane how much she sounds like my internal voice for Allison." Madeleine Roux, author of Allison Hewitt is Trapped

"Her voice is perfect for Allison, not the sultry seductress, or the stoic stateswomen, but just a solid everywoman. Her characterizations are strong as well, whether it is the soft English tones on the radio, or an ornery horny doctor, she finds the right tone for them, without making them into caricatures." - Bob Reiss, The Guilded Earlobe blog 

"Characters, concept, narration, all of it was great. Perfect match between the tone of the narrator and the luridly poetic imagery."-SFaudio.com (re: Monsters by Lilith Saintcrow in the compilation Chicks Kick Butt)

"Piper is brilliant. She knows the business backward and forward." - Jasinda Wilder, Author

“Piper has been absolutely instrumental in my audiobook success. She’s part of my brand at this point. She embodies my characters, brings my stories to life. Essentially, Piper demonstrates the difference between a ‘narrator’ and a ‘voice actor,’ and that difference is vitally important in putting out successful audiobooks.”
Jasinda Wilder, New York Times bestselling author

I was featured in an article about audiobooks on PBS MediaShift by author Laura Caldwell.
