Caroline Gombé played Sophie in RUINED at Unicorn Theatre, directed by Ricardo Khan. During that project she became member of Actors' Equity
"Gombe embodies Sophie with a quiet grace, like a wounded bird (singing songs to the bar patrons with sweet melodies that don’t jibe with the lyrical commentaries on war)." KCMETROPOLIS.org
"Caroline Gombe was affecting as the shy, girlish Sophie, changing expressions with the tide of events like a will-o’-the-wisp." The Independent INSIDER
"The show over all has moments of mirth, merriment and music. The song stylings of both the onstage musicians and Sophie (Caroline Gombe) create an atmosphere that enhances the jungle set even more. The incorporation of live music elevates the show, allowing it to hover above maudlin and focus on the texture of the characters rather than the severity of the subject matter.
The cast as a whole presented a cohesive feeling to the show. Never was an accent dropped, a swagger misplaced and when tenderness was called for, it was there." CultureMob.com
TRAIN TO 2010
"Although the play is dance-enhanced with some frenetic choreography
by Diane McIntyre, many of the scenes are punctuated by the impassioned solo dancing of an expressive
woman (Caroline Gombe)"
"Other supporting roles, mostly seen as ghostly cameos, are convincingly played by Caroline Gombe, and Alvin
Keith as Vavi's parents"
