"Mary is the rare theatre director with an advanced IQ and EQ; she squeezes every ounce of meaning out of a play and gets the absolute best performance out of her actors--because she respects and honors the material and she has a deep love and understanding of the process by which theater is brought to life on stage." Patrick Coyle, President Ten Ten Films
"Mary digs deeply to capture the intention of the playwright and is always able to deliver a very moving and compelling interpretation in any genre. She is wonderful with actors and designers, and there is always a feeling of respect that leads to exceptional performances from the entire team."
Mike Kittel, Lighting Designer
