What Are Critics Saying?

Wolf Hall

REview: stolen shakespeare festival “the tudors”

"Marisa Duran is a bit underutilized in both plays, as her waiting lady in Henry VIII is a very funny (though brief) and her Mary Boleyn in Wolf Hall is quick-witted and manipulative."

- Brian Wilson, Theater Jones

Talking Pictures

review: talking pictures with mainstage irving - las colinas

"Katie Bell Jackson is played by Marisa Duran…Katie Bell is the explorer, curious about the world, interested in going beyond her parents’ beliefs and testing the waters, even so much as sneaking out to a movie or striking up a relationship with a Mexican boy in town, a Baptist at that! Duran made this young girl’s curiosity fun to watch. There was looseness, a bit of wide-eyed view of the world in Duran’s choices that made Katie Bell seem innocent even when she challenged authority."

- Charlie Bowles, The Column Online

Steel Magnolias

review: steel magnolias with granbury theatre company

"Marisa Duran had the difficult task of portraying the role of Shelby. As each stint on stage unfolded, Duran managed to look sicklier while delivering the most positive of lines. The subtlety of this portrayal demands an expertise, and Duran delivered."

- Elaine Plybon, The Column Online
