Julie Sharbutt in GRAVD WATER at the 16th Annual Del Close Marathon:
"Gravid Water, an LA based half-acting half-improv team, performed with a star-studded cast...hilarity and misunderstandings ensue."
Julie Sharbutt in the feature film THE WEEKEND (FilmBuff):
"In the center is...Lulu (Julie Sharbutt), an ebullient schoolteacher with a winning smile. ..The cast also turns out some rather strong performances...Elrod and Sharbutt, who have sweet chemistry together.
Julie Sharbutt in Alan Ayckbourn’s COMMUNICATING DOORS, at the Alley Theatre in Houston:
“Sharbutt as Poopay has perfect comic timing and is a force on stage.” http://www.examiner.com/article/communicating-doors-mystery-murder-and-heart
“Making her Alley Theatre debut, Julie Sharbutt is quite comical as the spunky prostitute Phoebe... she lands many laughs… and lays the groundwork for the play’s touching and heartfelt finale.”
“...the comedy belongs to Sharbutt, who is delightfully dotty and inept as a would-be seducer, and vulnerable and cuddly as the newest victim.” http://blogs.houstonpress.com/artattack/2014/04/communicating_doors_time-warpi.php
“Sharbutt shines in her Alley Theatre debut as ‘Poopay,’ the dominatrix-for-hire who finds herself in the middle of a deadly scandal. Not only is she a stellar comedic foil to James Black’s dreadfully macabre Julian, she is cunning and heroic.”
“Julie Sharbutt makes Phoebe an interesting mix of jaded toughness and guileless vulnerability. She’s spunky and resilient, with solid survival instincts.”
“Josie de Guzman and Julie Sharbutt push toward the edges of broad comic characterization but at key moments pull back just enough to keep the fate of their characters a matter of concern. The play’s central figures, these two women make the most of Ayckbourn’s ability to create funny females of great depth and humanity.”
