As “The Stage Manager” in Our Town.
"People who have the talent for acting are born that way. You can’t teach “talent,” you either got it or you don’t. You can teach the “craft” of acting/writing but not the natural artist who creates it--that flows from within...In my opinion, Comer has that gift!"

“As an actress, Comer actually can do everything. She is witty, she is charismatic, she is vulnerable, she is powerful.”
Bennett Campbell Ferguson, Willamette Week
"Comer is a person of warmth and kindness, and her love for her work and the people in her world drew me in."
