Lila was nominated for 2016, 2017 & 2018 BroadwayWorld Louisville awards for "Best Youth Performance."
A 2016 review in Arts-Louisville about Lila's performance in "The Nether"... "It is also worth noting that young Lila Schaffner as Iris does a phenomenal job in not only grasping a difficult and complex subject matter, but maintaining a facade of youth over a wisdom beyond her years. It’s not a performance I think many young people could give, but the ease with which she delivers may belie her skill and potential for most audience members."
The LEO Weekly said of her performance, "In the Hideaway itself, the relationships between Iris, Papa and Woodnut is chilling and moving, thanks in no small part to Schaffner’s extraordinary performance as Iris. It’s a superb piece of casting.
