"Grosch is a fearless physical performer who goes to unexpected places…"
- Rohan Preston, Star Tribune
“Greta Grosch brings poignancy to the role of Gladys Page..."

- Graydon Royce, Star Tribune
“Anja, played with sardonic sexiness and hard-edged realism by Greta Grosch…”
- Lydia Howell, Pulse of the Twin Cities
