Reviews & Recognition

"...the singing throughout the cast is first-rate with... Odell particularly standing out."

-The Sacramento Bee (2014)

"...Odell soars with blistering comic timing and an empathy that echoes both Alison’s parents."

-The Columbus Underground (2017)

"Odell captures the passion and hurt of college-aged Allison, who, to the chagrin of her parents, discovers who she is and "jumps out of the closet" and into a relationship with Joan."

-Broadway World (2017)

"As college-aged Medium Alison, Meg Odell sparks empathy and laughter with her intensity of passion and self-doubt. Odell shines in one of the funniest scenes, also an exhilarating song (“Changing My Major”), as Alison connects with Joan... at Oberlin College. Odell’s kaleidoscopic cascade of feelings and newfound self-awareness is endearing."

- The Columbus Dispatch (2017)

"The actors who played multiple roles impressed me, especially with their quick costume changes that I didn't even catch, even though we followed most of the actors around. Although everyone sang well, I found myself looking forward to the solos that Megan Odell (White Stag, Ryweth) had the most."

- Broadway World (2020)

"..The show’s expansion of the character of the [White] Stag (a compelling Megan Odell) — who here becomes a sort of silent narrator, guide and observer of the action — works brilliantly. The opening image of the stag suspended in the air as Winston Churchill’s famous “We shall fight on the beaches” speech is heard is the show’s most stunningly eerie, inventive and evocative moment"

- AJC (2019)

"... and [Megan McCarthy Odell] as the graceful White Stag/Ryweth (what a beautiful voice!)"

- SpeakEysie (2019)

"Andrews- Smith appreciates talent, enthusiasm and a good work ethic. 'Meg is an exceptional singer/actor/dancer and guiding her has enriched my life in so many ways. I have had the great privilege of directing her in Singer’s Theatre for four years and I can’t wait to see her on the Broadway stage someday.'"

-Denison University Publications (2018)

"Meg Odell has two graceful turns as Belle, Ebenezer's lost love, and the dutiful young Martha Cratchit."

- The Sacramento Bee (2012)
