“So Jen Maren's Suzette could do that killer French accent. I counted seven big laughs in this show. Maren had five of them: The first and last were rapid-fire delivery of expository explosions, two were physical gags milked dry, and the fifth was a running gag I doubt was in the original script. It all adds up to the funniest debut on the Playhouse stage I have ever seen in a comedy, which makes this a must see show."

"This is Marjorie’s show, though. Maren relishes the bad-girl coarseness and duplicity."
"Marjorie (a well-cast and seductive Jennifer Maren) is the enigma at the center of this story"

"Jennifer Maren, who brings Marjorie to life in all her murderous, arsonous, seductive, sad little girl glory. She's an endlessly fascinating villain, the kind that you love to hate."
-Cherry and Spoon
"Jen Maren played the psychopathic Marjorie with such charm and humor that it was hard to remember she was the villain in the show."- Twincitiesarts.com
"Maren gives a masterful performance as the Scottish queen, effortlessly conjuring Mary’s headlong vivacity and generating sympathy for her captivity while simultaneously revealing the essentially shallow nature and heedless actions that have brought her there."
- Star Tribune review of MARY STUART
"But it is Jennifer Maren as Mary Stuart who must carry this show, and Maren is terrific. Her Act II, scene 1 deserved an ovation, but that would have spoiled the moment. This is award-winning acting."
