SUCH THINGS AS VAMPIRES
Sep 2018 - Oct 2018
People’s Light Theatre in Malvern, PA
The Reporter: “As played by energetic newcomers to the People’s Light stage Isa Arciniegas (Lucy), Crystal Lucas-Perry (Mina), Sam Henderson (Van Helsing) and Daniel Croix (R.M.Renfield), Alex Lydon (Jonathan Harker) and Pearl Rhein in several roles the cast are accomplished musicians a well as experienced actors who deliver an awesome level of sustained energy…”
NATASHA, PIERRE, AND THE GREAT COMET OF 1812
Dec 2015 - Jan 2016
American Repertory Theatre in Boston, MA
Irish Repertory Theatre, 132 West 22nd Street
Horizon Theatre Company in Atlanta, GA
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "Most versatile is the New York-based Pearl Rhein as an uptight snob who undergoes the biggest transformation, not so much letting down her hair as putting on a silly bouffant…"
Creative Loafing Atlanta said: "...a serious scene between Jo and Mary Lou strives for more emotional truth than the play's jokiness, with Baggett and Rhein emerging as the most charismatic musical performers."
Edge Boston (why were they there??): "Pearl Rhein, who plays Mary Lou, the violinist, stands out as an amazing musician. She plays the violin, mandolin, accordion and (I think) the bass and piano...Rhein plays her role with great verve and conviction." [editor's note: Pearl played violin, mandolin, accordion, steel guitar, accordion & piano.]
THE ROAD TO WHERE
The Weston Playhouse in Weston, VT
ArtsFuse.org: "The young musicians respond to [Cass] Morgan eagerly, and they turn to each other as they play, trading lines of music and instruments with the casual, warm skill of a jam band, as though they have played at this pub every Friday night for years."
Arena Stage in Washington DC
The Washington Post: "...a hooker, played by the terrific Pearl Rhein…" (full review)
ShowBizRadio: "...a thoroughly unpleasant prostitute (Pearl Rhein, who doubles nicely as the violinist in several musical sequences)…" (full review)
We Love DC: "Pearl Rhein has an underrated role as both a prostitute that Richard encounters and a violinist who anchors much of the show’s soundtrack." (full review)
