REVIEWS:

"Grosch is a fearless physical performer who goes to unexpected places…"
 - Rohan Preston, Star Tribune

“Grosch is a fabulous physical comic, using her big rangy body in large-scale situations and in subtle, throwaway moments—those gestures that distinguish great acting from mannered work.”
 - Graydon Royce, Star Tribune

"You may see this show again, but you will always measure Mavis by Grosch's performance.”
 - Tom Woods, The Citizen
