A pitch perfect performance.  Establishes an (actor) as a bulwark for the future.  Stimpson’s Marina is all innocent self-possession, and her ability to convulse the brothel and its proprietors with her chastity gives the play its comic capstone.

 Marguerite Stimpson is perfect as the supremely pure daughter Marina.  She is intensely moving in one of the play’s most famous scenes, the act five reunion between father and daughter.

A finely focused, beguiling Marguerite Stimpson is Constance at the Home, the attractive and ambitious young female reporter in a pink tailored jacket, trying to find the human side of the story.

 Solid as a new generation of student (who) unnerves the nimble professor.

Another standout was Marguerite Stimpson, filling in for Paula Plum as Mary Tyrone Karamazov.

And the cast is excellent – Tara Westwood, Andrew Blair, Michelle David, and Marguerite Stimpson are all wonderfully engaging, and incredibly committed to their characters even (and especially) in the most bizarre of moments (though David as Ben and Stimpson as Belinda certainly get the best of the awkward); the actors do beautiful work individually, and work wonderfully as an ensemble.

A standout in the cast is Marguerite Stimpson as Madeline. She perfectly conveys the attitudes and behaviors of the 1950’s, and has a terrific commitment to the role. She practically glows onstage.

As expected, this is Anne’s show, and Marguerite Stimpson’s Anne is youthful, exuberant, afraid, and remarkable.  She is emotional and moody, typical of teenage girls.  Her bitterness toward her mother, her slight resentment towards Margot, her humorous jabs at Mr. Dussell, and her flirtations and emotional attachment to Peter are all beautifully acted by Stimpson.  At the end of the play, when all of Anne’s fear becomes reality, Stimpson is emotional and scared, much like you believe the real Anne Frank has to be.

Mathew MacDermid,  Talkin’ Broadway

Played by Marguerite Sitmpson with an uncanny feeling for the adolescent girl, she imbues the play with humor, sadness, joy, anger, and love.  She creates a small world on the Hippodrome Stage in which each protagonist is brought to vivid life.  Stimpson’s Anne is incandescent.

An altogether brilliant cast.  Marguerite Stimpson as the waif-like Alice gives a striking performance, alternating toughness with fragility.  She moves with the grace of a dancer.
