Lesbians and the men who love them

"After the opening protest scene, the drama moves quickly to Maria’s post-college days with her girlfriend Sandina, played with a brilliant shrillness by Natasha Preston. Together they run a feminist bookstore."

Blithe spirit

"The pacing of the first act was ardent, with amusing, lively performances by Jessica Hannah Fraser (Ruth Condomine), Kurt Elftmann (Charles Condomine), and Natasha Preston (Edith)."

Sex with strangers

"Preston and costar Tristan Biber ’17 gave an astounding performance, proving they had not only talent, but also amazing chemistry — a necessity in a story this sensual. The show was so effortless that one often forgot that they were watching a live performance."

"In this particular presentation of Sex with Strangers, one felt as though they were experiencing each moment with the characters.  The actors performed without error, and still appeared passionate enough to evoke strong feelings from the audience members. More tension could be felt with each argument between Ethan and Olivia."

"Overall, Preston and Martin’s interpretation of this play made for an entertaining Friday night."

Going to St. ives

"Preston, too, was commendable in her role as Dr. Gage. She portrayed well the many transitions of her character, from calm and polite to more emotional and angry to, finally, much stronger and more calculated in the second act as she attempts to convince N’Kame to return to England with her. Her emotional and tragic story about her son’s death was affecting, and her facial expressions made it seem that she was reliving every moment as she told it."

"McAllister and Preston handled with poise its discussions of race and how citizens of developed countries think about developing countries.  The show left me thinking about it long after it ended, largely thanks to McAllister and Preston’s performances."
