Puck, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Baltimore Shakespeare Factory

"Allie Press is the quintessential Puck. She is mischievous and lithe. She expertly mingles among the audience. She never steals attention from the actors as she watches, but adds to the humor."

- DCMetroTheaterArts

"Allie Press tackles the role of Puck, the impish go-to guy for King Oberon and she really grasps this character. [...] Press skillfully delivers her dialogue and moves about the stage effortlessly giving a confident, strong performance."

- Backstage Baltimore


Juliet, Romeo and Juliet, The Green Globe Theatre

"The chemistry between [Forsyth and Press] is delightful, sweet and demure [as] two young lovers ought to be. Press’ most impressive scene is in slowly divesting of her day garments and preparing to drink her poison; her body language and overall physical expressiveness in this moment is stunning."

Steph, Reasons to be Pretty, The Green Globe Theatre

"... Steph (Allie Press) brings a level of melodramatic fury to the performance that is incomparable. Press embodies every psychotically charged pissed off girlfriend that we have all either been or dated at one point in our lives and does so with vehement vigor that is frightening to watch. The transition that Press pulls forth in her portrayal is impressive, mellowing the character as she grows and keeping that spiritual fire but finding a way to internalize it so that the energy remains but how its presented shifts drastically. Her interactions with Greg are stellar and the opening scene alone is well worth the price of admission."
