"That villainess is also a masterful presentation as Ashley Marinaccio connives without compunction only to fall into the madness provoked by the unraveling of her plot." 

- Backstage Blog (2012)


"Ashley Marinaccio plays Charlotte like a primal scream: Her puerile affection for her Snoopy doll, Freudian-slip diction and the thing with the pickles are uninhibited and frantic.These hysterically raucous therapy session roll along at high speeds on the diverse talents of a comically gifted cast."

-Glen Rock Patch (2011)


"As a writer, Marinaccio is reminiscent of Tony Kushner in that she wants to use theater to make a political point, but without sacrificing an ounce of entertainment value. She is definitely a writer to keep an eye on."

- Show Business Weekly (2010)

"Decadent Acts is a visceral reminder that the marginalization still goes on in much of the country today..."

- Backstage (2010) 


"Gritty and honest, GirlPower is sure to encourage post performance discussion among audience members of all ages and genders." 

- Time Out NY (2010)


"Each of the 40 pieces listed in the program flows seamlessly into the next, creating a well-paced performance (GirlPower: Survival of the Fittest)."

- Show Business Weekly (2010)
