Review for "Persians": "Martenson's Queen Atossa is strong and demanding." Camden New Journal

Review for "Fiddler on the Roof": "Martenson truthfully portrays Hodel's sensitivity and courage." Turun Sanomat, Finland (a leading newspaper)

Reviews for "No Exit": "Martenson brings just the right level of jaundiced sinful life to the stage. At times as sallow and smacked-out as Nico, other times as sexually playful as a kitten, her Estelle is a decadent stunner." Ithaca Times (NY)

"As the sultry Estelle, Jessica Martenson is suitably seductive and the most interesting actor of the cast." Ithaca Journal (NY)

Reviews for Monogamist:
"As Sky, the beautiful Jessica Martenson went beyond bimbo into charm and complexity. She's a great listener." Ithaca Journal (NY)

Reviews for When Henri Met Oscar:
"La Goulue is played with gusto by the delectable Jessica Martenson"
Remotegoat

"Portraying the outrageous, audacious La Goulue, Martenson showed a star at the top of her popularity, just as arrogant and pompous as the two men, and even threw in a 'Can-Can' and the splits to top it off..." "...the change in La Goulue was sensitively and subtly played, and brought [ ] genuine, heartfelt emotion to the stage."
