Ultimately, however, it is Lamadrid as the loose-lipped Betty 3 who, bitten by the theater bug, keeps the laughs coming and steals the show.”

"Ultimately, however, it is Lamadrid as the loose-lipped Betty 3 who, bitten by the theater bug, keeps the laughs coming and steals the show.”
"Collective Rage is delirious entertainment, which is also purposefully benign and fundamentally human. Anna Lamadrid is a delightful diva in a fierce performance."
-South Pasadena Review

The San Patricios by Jose Cruz Gonzalez
“ Particularly memorable is Anna Lamadrid, who plays Ofelia, a young Mexican woman who defies the wishes of her mother and brother, and takes up arms to defend Mexico. Lamadrid captures the fierce independence of a woman who goes against the pervasive social pressures of her time period.”

The Myths We Need or How to Begin by Larry Kunofsky
“..actors deliver stellar performances…“The Tomater”, played with moxie by Anna Lamadrid…balances naivete and fragility with nerve and an iron will. The scene where she first arrives is one of the best in the play.”
–Michelle Augello-Page, thehappiestmedium.com. Read full review
“Anna Lamadrid’s turn as the literal first lady, with a fun and vivacious personality, is reminiscent of Twain’s chatty and curious Eve. Lamadrid’s understated sexual power allows the play to maintain a titillating feel..”

Voted one of the Top Ten Off-Off Broadway Shows of 2011 by Paper Magazine
“Anna Lamadrid (Carolina) is clearly part comedienne. Her naturally sweet if somewhat foggy Carolina reminds me of a slightly more fragile Billie Dawn (from Born Yesterday). Not that the role is played for laughs. Lamadrid offers us a real woman, one whose attributes are recognizable and familiar.”
–Alix Cohen, womanaroundtown.com. Read full review
