LA CAGE AUX FOLLES with Bay Area Musicals
"Matthew McCoy has assembled a marvelous cast for this bubbly musical . . . . Bessie Zolno gives a charming performance as Anne."
--Richard Connema, member of Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle, Quoted in Talkin' Broadway
THIS IS OUR YOUTH with Marin Onstage
"This is Our Youth Shines at the Belrose : Marin Onstage has brought together a superb cast of young actors. . . . Bessie Zolno (Jessica Goldman) perfectly portrays a jittery, stressed out character who is not sure what she wants, constantly questioning every move when not arguing furiously to claw her way into self esteem."
--Alexa Chipman, Imagination Lane Reviews, Quoted in Thearterstorm
"This is Our Youth: Past and Future at Marin Onstage: Warren’s potential girlfriend, Jessica Goldman (Bessie Zolno) slyly inserts herself into the apartment, almost like a dancer, for a non-date “date.” Zolno gives us the humor, charm, and self-consciousness of a privileged and troubled college kid. She brings all of Jessica’s family and sexual hang-ups to bear on Warren’s empathetic and gentle psyche. Their dance together in the shabby apartment offers hope and possibilities, as they engage in brilliantly funny and awkward sexual repartee. They create a chemistry onstage that reveals hidden depths in the play. The stakes are high for this clumsy couple and they do the script justice, bringing its nuances to life."
--Barry David Horwitz, forallevents, Quoted in forallevents
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF with Novato Theater Company
"Fiddler Soars in Novato: Highlights include: The three daughters ...All Excellent. I especially liked Zolno, that rare performer who can act, sing and dance ("triple threat")."
--Clark Miller, forallevents, Quoted in forallevents
