Biography

"As Eliza, Heidi Berg enters with wonderful haughtiness, her defense against her family's rejection... Berg depicts Eliza softening in her relationship with Diana, in her cautious acceptance of Agatha's warmth, and her ebullience when encountering Benjamin."
Arthur Dorman - THE RIVER BECOMES SEA

"Brave, honest performances, the brittle, brilliant, deranged Doctor (Berg)..." Audience Review - FRANKENSTEIN: A MODERN PROMETHEUS

"...so beautifully fleshed out, and portrayed so effectively by Adelheid Berg as Danah..." Minnesota Theater Love - INTUITION AND THE MANTIS

"Heidi Berg’s delightfully gruff crossgender turn as J. P. Morgan reminds us just how powerfully a single man’s arrogance can misguide a whole economy." John Townsend - TESLA

Best Use of Line Award, 2014 48 Hour Film Festival, "All Night Long" - Heidi (Lead)

"Ilmarinen is full of attitude and dry wit, and Berg plays the character with a perfect balance of pragmatism and wry detachment." Sophie Kerman - THE KALEVALA

"Marianne's morose nature, drawn from the losses she endured throughout her life, is convincingly presented, as is her determination to stand as a bulwark against further losses... Heidi Berg's sensitive performance as Marianne builds upon the playwright's work to give her character a strong presence." Arthur Dorman - THE STORMS OF NOVEMBER

"Berg as the villainous Mrs. Cheveley brought the chill into the room with each entrance," Janet Preus - AN IDEAL HUSBAND

"It's a fuller portrait with satisfying epic sweep, performed in St. Paul with brutal integrity by Heidi Berg." John Townsend - MEDEA: A NOH CYCLE

"Berg, as the woman who mounts a one-woman campaign to investigate the aforementioned suspicious death, is the catalytic agent in the play. It's her performance -- at once sweet and tough -- she largely keeps things moving forward." - Dominic Papatola - BOOK OF DAYS

"...The middle segment features Jared Reise and Heidi Berg as vacuous students... They're entirely fascinating." Quinton Skinner - BASH

"Heidi Berg's empathetic Linda leaves memories of Diane Keaton behind." - Rob Hubbard - PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM
