"Tierney, whose lipstick and outfits are as red as her name, looks as good as she acts, as good as she sings. Appealing to every red-blooded male in the house, she drapes herself around Boyd, desperately trying to lead him into temptation as her big solo, a tango-themed Whatever Lola Wants is not far short of meriting the great Charles Spencer's description of 'pure theatrical Viagra'". Jonathan Baz, jonathanbaz.com
"Poppy Tierney made a lush and pouting Lola. She sang and danced convincingly and made the most of the Carry On aspects of her character.. Tierney adeptly showed the contradictions in Lola and when she turned on the Devil, the groundwork had been properly laid." Stephen Collins, britishtheatre.com
"Poppy Tierney has a back to die for in 'that dress' and makes light work of the famous 'Whatever Lola Wants' number." Jody Tranter, westendframe.com
"..the libidinous Lola, is given a definitive performance by Poppy Tierney, seductive in the extreme and with a wicked turn of phrase." Michael Darvell, classicalsource.com
"Poppy Tierney is indisputably beautiful, and she’s incredibly alluring as the femme fatale, making a Jessica Rabbit-like entrance in a figure-hugging backless dress.." Ginger Hibiscus, gingerhibiscus.com
"Jonathan D Ellis and Poppy Tierney made a wonderfully devilish duo of Mr Applegate and Lola. Ellis finds his spotlight, along with many laughs, in the crowd-pleasing “Those Were The Good Old Days”. And Tierney expertly tempts Joe Hardy down the wrong path in “Whatever Lola Wants” and shows her dancing skills in the Fosse classic, “Who’s Got the Pain?”" Richard Brownlie-Marshall, richardsbm.tumblr.com

Emma Murray, dailywaffle.co.uk
"Among the cast for villains, it is Poppy Tierney who steals the show, playing the Joker's side-kick, Harley quinn, as a demented, dumbed-down Cyndi Lauper."
Tim Cooper, The Sunday Times
"Then there’s Harley Quinn.. From the moment she’s introduced she steals the show, not only providing a measure of comic relief, but also one of the more sympathetic, better written characters in the piece as well. While that has a lot to do with the character, it’s clear that most of this is down to Poppy Tierney’s performance."
