"... first rate work from everybody. Ms. Mance seemed ready for Hedda. At least. Such a talent." - David C. Nichols. L.A. Times, "4.48 Psychosis"

"The cast is terrific [including] the redoubtable Cynthia Mance." - L.A. Times, "Paradise Park"

"Cynthia Mance is raw and funny as a waitress who is angry with men (her grim delight in talking about how surprisingly difficult it is to try and twist off a man's scrotum is a highlight)." Terry Morgan, Filthy Talk For Troubled Times

"Atik’s harrumphing hubby and Mance’s seriously deranged Madame Martin are vivid, multidimensional characters." - LAWeekly, "The Bald Soprano"

"Mance gives a searing portrayal of a woman broken by a neglectful lover, spiritual malaise and physical illness." - LAWeekly, "Cinema Stories"

"Mance's alternately sugary and venomous Mariedl disturbs at a visceral level." - LAWeekly, The Presidents

"Mance gives a sympathetic, multilayered central performance." - L.A. Times, "Mariage Blanc"
