The delightful veteran actress Carole Monferdini is superb and instantly credible as the Earth Mother Abigail. Ms. Monferdini wonderfully plays the guitar and sings as well as warmly presiding over the New Mexico machinations. Darryl Reilly Theater Scene

The Fierce Urgency of Now

The Fierce Urgency of Now

The tender moments weathering Dodo’s illness, sage advice from an old salt to a young whipper-snapper, etc… were sublime. This was in no small part due to the excellent portrayal of the been-there-done-that characterization by Carole Monferdini as the last surviving member of the four martini lunch days in advertising. Ms. Monferdini, with little effort, became the only thing on stage with little more than a line ending in “darlin” or a tiny tilt of her coiffe. Evan Meena Outer Stage

Carole Monferdini has the best costumes including a lace evening gown and she wears them with style and magnificence. Playing an older woman, she manages to bring the necessary glamor to the part and she makes work what shouldn't work. In other words, she is divine. J. Peter Bergman Edge Media Network Outstanding in this production is a superb Carole Monferdini as the talent agent who just knows she left a hatpin in this apartment some decades before. Larry Murray Berkshire on Stage

Monferdini was a real find, a precious jewel plucked from the gems surrounding her. Her Teutonic, sardonic take on Lillian was spot on, right down to the delivery of one signature stereotype zinger after another. But what impressed most through all the laughs was a smoldering sensuality from what was the story's oldest "living" character. Oh my. Oh yes. Telly Halkias Dorset Journal

"Monferdini is the heart and soul of this show. She embodies Peggy so much that it feels as if she is Peggy, as if the layers of her character have built up naturally over time and through tough experiences. . . She captures Peggy's conflicting qualities--her exterior grace and yet inner rough edges, her directness and yet ability to dish out irony and blur the truth. . [It's a] wonderfully layered performance." --David Brooks Andrews Daily News Correspondent

"Obie-award winner Carole Monferdini plays eighty-something Lemy Babin Caldwell, as she prepares the funeral food for her childhood friend...Monferdini is wholly convincing in this role; the audience travels with her through her character's joys and sorrows, and this subtle actor's standing ovation was heart-felt and richly deserved." --Ray Wallace The Montgomery Independent

As Florence's older sister...Monferdini glitters onstage..her dialogue clever, expressive, finely tuned, her bearing and presence sheer splendor." -- Eric Berlin
