Thanks to the whirlwind of panic and rage that is Clytemnestra.  When she learns of her husband's betrayal, she drops to the floor and begins panting for breath, a wounded animal. She doesn't scream, she doesn't wail, but instead delivers her threat through bared teeth...

​​ It's a speech any actress would kill to deliver,

and Anderson Boll knocks it all the way to Sparta. ​

The most heartbreaking figure in the play is Birdie Hubbard, played by

the wonderful Heather Anderson Boll

as an ethereal woman who acts like a wounded animal.    

Kerry Clawson, AKRON BEAON JOURNAL, September 21, 2014

Heather Anderson Boll compels in her transition 
the shy, routine-oriented Melinda 
to the woman 
with a blinding and incendiary obsession. 
Roy Berko,

Those brilliant, well-timed pauses in her delivery...reveal for fleeting moments her character's astounding vulnerability and the depths of her damaged soul.  

It is tempting not to look away from Anderson Boll's Sarah for fear of missing something remarkable

Clytemnestra dazzles throughout...

 her tango with Achilles reveals a consummate dancer as well as a superior actor.

...Birdie (a marvelous Heather Anderson Boll, fragile as fine vintage china,

complete with hairline cracks.) Andrea Simakis, THE PLAIN DEALER Sep. 20, 2014

The most poignant role in the play, the long-suffering alcoholic Birdie, is etched with exquisite precision by Heather Anderson Boll.  

Employing a squeaky little tweet of apologetic laughter, Anderson Boll conveys a lifetime of misery.   

Christine Howey, SCENE MAGAZINE, September 2014

Indeed, these are two of the better performances of the year

at any area theater.

In a genuinely moving scene, Charlotte and Lucinda paint their toenails in preparation for the impending nuptials, and their girlish giggles dissolve as they share long-buried secrets.  Here, mother and daughter, thanks to some lovely work by the actresses, are believably alive.

Anderson Boll always delivers finely crafted performances, but she is    

                                                                                                                 especially good as Lucinda,

                                                                                                           a woman who has suddenly realized

                                                                                  that all she has to do to change the unhappy picture of her life 

                                                                                                            is to step out of the frame. 

                                                            She doesn't have as much time onstage as the hothouse young 'uns.

                                                         But when she appears, she is entirely real, no curveballs necessary.  

                                                                                           – Andrea Simakis, THE PLAIN DEALER (The Mystery of Love and Sex, 2016)

​MY BARKING DOG may be too abstract for some, too bizarre for others, but it is worth going to see if for no other reason than to enjoy two totally professional actors ply their immense talents.  

​Roy Berko, April 2011

​​​​​​​​Heather Anderson Boll

​​​​​Sarah Goodwin is a complex, multi-layered character; her performance  is unforgettable, and powerful.  


Later, slinking across the stage in a blood-red dress, her eyes shining with crazed purpose, she seduces Achilles to the haunting strains of "Never on a Sunday" to enlist his help in saving her doomed daughter.

She is simply riveting. 

Sometimes, one performance is worth the price of admission -

and "Iphigenia 2.0" belongs to Mama.

Mrs. Frank - a beautifully nuanced portrait by Heather Anderson Boll 

Fran Heller, CLEVELAND JEWISH NEWS July 2013

But it’s the... mercurial streak of a woman named Heather Anderson Boll, who lights the fuse of this quirky play.  / the younger daughter, a still-unsettled rock ‘n’ roller, a spurt of a woman who can get hysterical over a cat she’s largely abandoned but who winds up being her mother’s greatest comfort, aid and touchstone.  

It’s a richly detailed portrayal of an imperfect person who’s perceived weaknesses become her strengths.  She finds the perfect burial spot.  She constructs the cardboard coffin kit.  She finds a measure of herself in the course of her mother’s illness. 

And that, ultimately, is what this fascinating little play is about. 

We’re lost souls, we human beings, and sometimes those of us who are the most lost

might be nearer some kind of small truth about the world and our existence in it.  


                                                            -TONY BROWN, THE PLAIN DEALER

It’s a first rate production...that’s nearly perfect

her physicality filled the stage -

absolutely intriguing to look at.

she took incredible artistic risks 

& gave Coble's quirky character

flesh and blood.
