PERFORMANCE REVIEWS

YESBROADWAY'S "40 UNDER 40" FEATURE OF IRENE

"Marky Irene's performance in MCC's Charm last year broke our hearts and proved she is an actress to be reckoned with. She's a true inspiration in the theater community and someone who we all can't wait to see continue to shine on the stage and screen!" - Sam Maher

THEATER MANIA

"Diven elegantly walks the line between comedy and gravity in portraying a character that is seriously troubled, but also written to be funny." - Zachary Stewart

YESBROADWAY

"Special shoutout to Marky Irene Diven. Her heartbreaking performance proves she is an actress to be reckoned with. She's gonna catch the attention of award nominating committees!" - YesBroadway

THE DAILY BEAST

"Diven's performance as Lady is particularly complex." - Tim Teeman

VULTURE

"And both Marky Irene Diven (as Lady) and Jojo Brown (as Jonelle) give smart, funny, affecting performances as the two members of Mama's flock who haven't quite settled on a gender identity..." - Sara Holdren

MORE THAN THE PLAY

"Marky Irene Diven shines as Lady. The character is drowning in fear and self-doubt due to physical and emotional victimization and gender confusion. The arc of this character's catharsis during the course of the play is beautifully interpreted." - Domenick Danza

LIGHTING AND SOUND AMERICA

"Marky Irene Diven gives the amorphous character of Lady a sharp profile." - David Barbour
