Ponzi Man by Gary Morgenstein 

"Marlene Wallace was a major power of the play. Sensitive, assured and overwhelmingly talented, Wallace dominated all her scenes. She delivered a supurb tragicomic performace."

Sam Shepard's True West

"Marlene Wallace gave an astonishing and wonderful performance with impressive skill,authority, and humanity. It was a moving and consummately skillful performance. I am glad to have had a chance to see her operate in such a perfect sphere."
- Lionel Tiger

Beyond Therapy

"...a wonderful cast: Kurt Bauccio as Bruce, Tom Daddario as Dr. Stuart Framingham, Matt Fraley as Andrew, Brad Letson as Bob, Forba Shepherd as Mrs. Charlotte Wallace and Marlene Wallace (also amazing in True West) as Prudence. Most off-off-Broadway shows have a few good actors and one or two so-so actors that the good ones have to drag behind them to the very end. That is certainly not the case with this troupe. Everyone on stage was absolutely hysterical. The actors were obviously having a blast, depicting every bizarre personality disorder known to man."

Ponzi Man: A triumph for the cast , Gary Morgenstein and director Emily Tetzlaff

"Marlene Wallace had a strong stage presence. She displayed a multidimensional talent blended with vigor, substance and intelligence. Her performance added effervescence, vitality, realism and depth to the mechanism of the play."

Sam Shepard's True West

"...And Indigo Productions has instead cast two very talented women – Marlene Wallace as Lee and and Sarah Jackson as Austin. Indigo Production’s version of True West is in no way a feminized version of the story. Those girls have balls.  Thomas G. Waites has directed a very true version of True West and once you are seated in the theater, the role-reversed casting becomes unnoticeable. The actresses are totally believable as two siblings, each of whom wants what the other has."

Beyond Therapy

"The performers playing Bruce and Prudence, Kurt Bauccio and Marlene Wallace, camouflage themselves in a normalcy that makes them stand out from the off-kilter personalities and situations surrounding them. Watching them reveal more and more of themselves over the course of the show, and become more comfortable with each other, is where this Beyond Therapy finds most of its fun.  And there's certainly a considerable amount to be found in Durang's script, which seems simultaneously rooted in reality and a twisted, fractured, fantasy world where anything can happen, and probably will at some point. This results in a character-rich script replete with opportunities for six performers to give unique, colorful, and memorable portrayals."

Sam Shepard's True West

"Sam Shepard's True West is a tale of two brothers. Or so I thought. Director Thomas G. Waites has cast two women [Marlene Wallace and Sarah Jackson] as the siblings whose rivalry explodes in violence. Though they usually fight their battles with words, can women convincingly wreak havoc on each other? Yes, they can.  Two women show themselves as capable as their male counterparts of destroying everything in sight. You've come a long way, baby."
