Natalie Menna
"Her performance is pitch-perfect."
- Joshua Crone, Reviews from Underground
"Natalie Menna plays Laura with the emotional complexity of a woman who is in her sexual prime but confined by social propriety and repressed in an unfulfilled marriage."
- Beate Hein Bennett, NY Theatre Wire
"Natalie's performance in The Pelican is transcendent. Her "Elise" fairly glows with evil glee! She brings complexity to what otherwise could be a stock villainess."
- Crystal Field, artistic director, Theater for the New City
