"Maddie Pell plays Harriet Smith and others, and you couldn’t ask for a more flexible actress: as the play went on, I found myself able to distinguish her multiple characterizations in a millisecond based on her facial expression alone, even before I noted the playful physicalizations attached to each role."
-Karen Topham, Chicago Onstage (Emma)
" Gertrude (played with pitch-perfect softness of tone and firmness of belief by Madeline Pell)..."
-Splash Magazines (An Ideal Husband)
"Mrs. Whatsit (Madeline Pell, great), her quote-spouting friend, Mrs. Who (Javier Ferreira, also great) and the somewhat invisible Mrs. Which (Carmen Molina, completing the trifecta of greatness)..."
-TimeOut Chicago (A Wrinkle In Time)
"Mrs. Whatsit, the youngest of three supernatural ladies, whose lives have spanned centuries and galaxies, is played with humor and intelligence by Madeline Pell."
-Chicago Theatre & Concert Reviews (A Wrinkle in Time)
"...Harriet (Madeline Pell, in an endearingly naifish performance)..."
-Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune (Emma)
"In one memorable scene, Maddie Pell, a promising young character actor, hops up and down as she flips between Miss Bates, a good-hearted but silly spinster, and Harriet Smith, Emma's amiable but less-than-bright protégée."
-Emily McClanathan, Broadway World (Emma)
