“Demmary cast Genevieve Levin, who turns in an endearing, hilarious performance as Sylvia. Levin’s Sylvia is two-dimensional, as it should be. Dogs have no depth of character and live in the moment and Levin understands this thoroughly.”
“The trio develop an easy chemistry with terrific timing and endearing performances all around. Tickner and Levin have to be careful not to exhibit a truly romantic relationship, which can cause concern if not revulsion from the audience if they begin to think there is something more than just a man/dog relationship going on... If not played right, the suggestiveness in the darker second act could be uncomfortable, but Levin, Tickner, and Stevens breeze right through it.”
“Gurney’s popular play gives the “starring” role to Sylvia, who is irresistibly played by Genevieve Levin, with every wiggle, sniff and leap onto the family couch sending Greg into ecstasy and driving Kate to distraction.”
“The effervescent Levin's real triumph is in her full physical, mental and emotional embodiment of Sylvia. From lights up, her commitment to the character (without use of the easy cliche panting and bent "puppy paw" wrists) is perfectly fleshed out.”
“And Genevieve Levin–the rock-solid Beatrice of yesteryear–delivers a hilarous(ly foul-mouthed) performance as the titular dog.”
"From the moment the luminous Genevieve Levin steps on the stage as Lotty Wilton, the audience knows it will be enmeshed in an almost flawless Theatre Palisades performance... one of the strongest community theater shows in recent history."
"Levin, in her first appearance on the Palisades stage, is the fulcrum around which the play revolves. Her charming performance as the earnest woman who seeks a change from her dreary life in London, in a marriage gone stale, is sparkling."
“Genevieve Levin plays sis, and as she admits in her bio, she needs to keep branching out from playing loving mothers in Simi Valley. She inhabits the Tina part so thoroughly and wonderfully she is practically chomping on the scenery looking for more to do. This is an actress who needs intelligent, powerful, lead parts, or supporting parts with teeth in them. She needs emotional truth. Furlani’s script gives her these things.”
“Working with Levin--and this accounts for a majority of austin’s time on stage--the two make a good brother-sister pair. Deceptively good. At the heart of the play, these two have created an engaging brother-sister dynamic that helps sweep the play along.”
"Principal among them is Genevieve Levin as Mary Hatch (scheduled to be played through the rest of the run by Dawn Notagiacomo), the hometown girl that hero George Bailey marries. Levin has a lovely voice and is an effective actor who exudes warmth, compassion and a jot of humor to balance Bailey's darker view on life."
