Maria Callas in MASTER CLASS, by Terrence McNally, at Coachella Valley Repertory Theatre
Re's Callas is pitch perfect! It is one of the finest, most nuanced performances I have seen here in the Valley… Re brings a subtlety and substance to Callas that is nothing short of remarkable… I was totally "swept away".
They all fade under the brilliant shine of Ms. Re’s Callas, who commands the stage from the moment of her entrance to her exit.
Re plays Callas flawlessly, showing the naked pain, the unimaginable glory, the humiliation and despair, the obsessive perfectionism, and the dizzying excitement of her life—all on parade.
absolutely incredible performance… It’s a magnificent tour de force performance not be missed. … pure Callas.
Maria Callas in MASTER CLASS, by Terrence McNally, at Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples FL
Marina Re in the role of Callas, becomes Callas. It is a performance that blows you away. … Marina Re gives an unforgettable performance as Callas, filling her with a humanity that makes you feel you know the woman.
Marina Re who plays Maria, is so spot on, you never doubt, the real Callas is there. Feisty, and fiery, smug and superior, with a vulnerability that brought tears to my eyes, Marina Re reigns over what Maria teaches. It is a performance that is utterly dazzling.
Marina Re as Callas conveys the ego, the impetuosity, the sadness and bitterness of the fallen star. She is remarkable.
But, oh, what a Maria Callas! Actress Marina Re channels Callas in all her complications and contradictions, and it’s potent stuff.
Ms. Re plays her in all her richness and ferocity. … Ms. Re, in this role, commands attention every second she’s on that stage.
Rose in THE LAST ROMANCE, by Joe Di Pietro, at Florida Studio Theatre
slightly deluded, decidedly cranky, versatile Marina Re plays the character as funny, irritating, and sympathetic all at once
The Observer, Siesta Key

Mary LoPresto in OUR SON'S WEDDING, by Donna DeMatteo, at Florida Studio Theatre
Marina Re couldn't be better as the loving if controlling mother and wife… with a full command of the Italian-American, blue-collar thought, language and mannerisms
Re and D'Amato's chemistry is palpable. I found Re particularly enjoyable, from her absolute mastery she exhibits over her husband to her symbolic wrapping everything in a protective layer of Saran Wrap.
The Scene Magazine
Marta Ribada in THE MIAMIANS, by Michael McKeever, at Florida Studio Theatre
Re, in a vivid and engaging performance, is at peace with the world around her… Re's bountiful warmth and charisma are especially charming and among the most moving scenes of the evening.
The scenes work best because of the touching performance of Marina Re, who exudes warmth and a bit of sass.
The show is blessed with superb actors. Perhaps the best is Marina Re, who as Marta Ribada is feisty, and indomitable… Re is wonderful… an image of assertive womanhood long before Betty Friedan.

Doña Milla / Flora in BOLEROS FOR THE DISENCHANTED, by José Rivera, at Florida Studio Theatre
If anyone can be singled out in a strong cast, it would be Marina Re, so natural in discharging heightened emotion… [Re] is compelling and sensuous.
Marina Re, a stand-out in last season's THE MIAMIANS, creates an even stronger impact this time around. As the mother, she's comically anxious, and her confessions lead to breakdowns that Re makes heartbreakingly real.
The actors demonstrate versatility and a complete grasp of their craft, and Re and Buzzario, playing husband and wife, are most believeable, sharing frustration, anger, the bond of time and memory and unites them.
[Re continues] to effectively deliver the balance of laughter and tears that Rivera packs into his work.

Ma in COMP, by John Shea, at Boston Playwrights' Theatre
[Marina Re], as their mother, is tough as nails, a mixture of doting mother happy to have her sons home, and pragmatic middle-aged woman, used to standing up for herself as a single woman. She's a hoot: fluttering, hovering, chastising and holding forth with supreme confidence.
