Marni's Reviews

Yes, argh... this page still needs updating... I hope to get more up soon, but for now, enjoy the clips below!

TWO BY PINTER IS A HIT!
  • "Nigel Reed and Marni Penning, as Richard and Sarah, deal brilliantly
    with the play's heavy emotional dialogue and action." -- William Hyder, The Baltimore Sun
  • "Actors Nigel Reed and Marni Penning are expert at the role-playing of a twisted marriage...
    Penning runs the gamut as the wife who thrives on the game and grows
    desperate to maintain the kinky status quo." -- Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post

  • "[A] tense, fascinating portrait of a woman come undone...
    grippingly portrayed by Penning..."
    The Washington Post
  • "The performance of Marni Penning as the woman at
    the center of the vortex is an evening-long marvel...
    a high-energy, highly intelligent performance..."
    Potomac Stages
  • "Spellbinding...Miss Penning electrifies as the neurotic Helen,
    but she also is affecting in the languid, tender love scene,
    where she is crowing and transformed..."
    The Washington Times
  • "Totally brilliant...Marni Penning develops a electrifying and riveting main character
    with a plethora of honest stage reactions throughout. Hers is a lusciously acted role."
