Molly Shannon's Tilly the Trickster (Atlantic Theater) : Mom/Mooney
“Every actor is razor sharp...Elisabeth Ness is appealingly frank and vulnerable in the role [of Molly].” – The Washington Post
“[The cast] turns in a uniformly top-notch performance...Elisabeth Ness adds a delicious element of scandal... Willowy and youthful, [she] marvelously...plays it to the hilt, somehow pouring bouncy innocence and sexual predation into the blender to create a power crazed faux-innocent post-feminist that might make even Gloria Steinem blush.” – DC Theatre Scene
“Played brilliantly by Elisabeth Ness, Molly truly makes this play work. She is the moral compass among a group of political hacks that have few morals.” – Baltimore Out Loud
The show was Helen Hayes Award Recommended.
Red Herring : Lynn McCarthy
“Ness plays the flighty, giggly Lynn McCarthy to perfection. While all the scenes are hilarious, a stand-out occurs when Sebastian and Ness speak on a phone, which, because they are in different countries, has a multi-second delay. The fact that they pull off this scene with ease speaks volumes for their talent and Burke’s direction.” – The Catskill Chronicle
“In a show of funny episodes, Ness is hilarious...” – Times Herald-Record
The Times Herald-Record named Shadowland Theatre’s production of Red Herring the “Best Comedic Play of the Year”
Like You Like It : Lynn, the Neckbrace Girl
“For an instructive glimpse on how to make the most of something, keep an eye on Elisabeth Ness, who plays the hell out of... ‘Neck–brace Girl.’” – Theater Talk’s New Theater Corps
“Grab your Metrocards, because this season's best new musical isn't on the Great White Way — it's in Brooklyn. [H]alf the fun of the show comes from watching so many talented performers enjoying themselves.” – Backstage
“‘Like You Like It’ was a delight, [bringing] to life the Bard by way of the ‘80s of John Hughes’ films.... Notable characters include Neckbrace Girl (Elisabeth Ness), clearly lifted from Joan Cusack’s character in ‘Sixteen Candles.’” – Edge
“As a developing piece of theatre with a cast of talented young actors, you might even find one day that you can tell all your friends about the time you saw that big Broadway show or that super-star on the cover of a magazine at this little theatre in Brooklyn way-back-when." – Newark Examiner
NY Innovative Theater Award for Outstanding Production of a Musical.
You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown : Lucy Van Pelt
“Possibly the most stunning in her complete embodiment of her role is Elisabeth Ness as Lucy. Ms. Ness in her simple, straight-forward involvement with the character is never more than Lucy and never less than completely real. She is beautifully balanced by Karen O’Connell as Sally Brown; in fact, the girls pretty much dominate the show, traveling in their own spheres, messing with the boys, and never getting in each other’s way.” – Star Exponent
The House of Blue Leaves : Corrinna Stroller
Potomac Stages named Elisabeth one of the “standout performances” and “a delight.”
The Arlington Connection called her “very good and very funny.”
The Washington Post review lauded the “skilled cast” with “finely-tuned timing that makes the most of the zaniness.”
