“[Charise Greene's] entire play is modernly elegant. And I’ve never attended a talkback where there were such deep and thoughtful responses to the symbolism of a play. Of course, I’ve not seen many plays that use symbolism this well.” - The Sappy Critic





“At its core, the beauty of this talkback and the [Cannibal Galaxy: a love story] as a whole is an exploration of a loss of control, leaving the audience moved by the piece.” - Xavier Newswire





“Into this den of nostalgia enters a pregnant woman (the extraordinary Charise Greene), who is filled with a no-nonsense desperation.” – New York Theatre Review.

“Charise was named one of NYC’s actors to look out for in American Theatre Magazine.”
- American Theatre Magazine, Molly Rice.




“Actor Charise Greene as Augusta steals every scene as she storms across the stage in anger, imposes frightening lines of questioning on the characters, drinks the drinks of audience members, and even plays with their cell phones.”easy

“Lady Bracknell is completely unrecognizable (which is not to say bad- Charise Greene’s deliriously insane performance is one of the highlights of the show).”Screen-Shot-2013-09-09-at-10.30
-Broadway World




“The very last moment differs so dramatically from the original so as to leave no doubt that this is Williams’s play and the literal show-stopper is all thanks to the indefatigable Charise Greene as Arkadina.”
-NYTheatre.com



“As Irina, Charise Greene is blunt, animated and over-the-top, and it’s impossible to take one’s eyes off her.”edge
-Edgenewyork.com



“As Joanna, Charise Greene has a natural ease on stage which is very attractive. We believe her as the play’s conscience. Greene creates a nice balance of shrewdness and naivety.”
-NYTheatre.com





“Greene gives a highly compelling and convincing performance, with a nuanced juxtaposition of Joanna’s strength and seeming frailty. She reveals Joanna’s combination of disillusionment and courage progressively, giving the character a convincing and delightful development through the play.”
-ColumbiaSpectator.com





“On the opposite end of the power spectrum is the struggling adjunct, Joanna (a passionate Charise Greene) who, when not serving coffee to the others, desperately seeks a balance between her idealism and her need for tenure track.”
- TheaterMania





The Choice: On the Stage, an Insider’s View of College Admissions.






“Joanna, a struggling but ambitious adjunct, played by the highly focused Charise Greene, is brought in to complete the triumvirate when its third member is taken ill, and she becomes the pawn of her elders.”
- Blog Critics




“It was Charise Greene as the doctor who shimmied and shook her way into the limelight.”
-StarringNYC




“Incredible energy and dexterity from Charise Greene…How these women maintain a shape to the whole is miraculous, and the incredible finale is the biggest, best surprise of all.”
-Theatre Mirror
