As The Amazing Karnak in "Ride the Cyclone" at Arena Stage

"The Amazing Karnak, a mechanical fortune teller, (Marc Geller acing an automaton's jerky moves) brooks little competition as the main draw of "Ride the Cyclone," the ingeniously dark and funny musical now at Arena Stage." 

Celia Wren - The Washington Post

"Conducting them through their contest of musical confessionals is The Amazing Karnak, a life-like mechanical fortune teller brilliantly embodied by Marc Geller. Abetted by convincing makeup and sound design, Geller, who nails Karnak’s mechanized movement, creates a dynamic, wickedly sarcastic ringmaster within the confines of a glass-topped, wooden box."

André Hereford - MetroWeekly

"Geller is winning and uncanny as the snarky, deadpan, animatronic Karnak."

Jared Strange - DC Theater Arts 

"Encased in an ornate cabinet, The Amazing Karnak (Marc Geller) is a fortune teller, and Geller perfectly embodies the type of mechanical mannequin that leaves people saying "he looks so life-like!" By turns droll, jaded, snarky and prophetic, Karnak is the erstwhile narrator of the show, and he doesn't just break the fourth wall - he obliterates it, to hilarious effect, welcoming both the audience and the young teens to his macabre little corner of limbo."

Ken Kemp - Broadway World 

"Marc Geller’s Karnak grounds this absurd world with his stoic campiness, delivering some of the wittiest lines to the highest of hilarity, all while confined to his tiny machine booth."

Unprofessional Opinion 

"I want to put particular praise toward Karnak (Marc Geller.) With impeccable sarcasm and indifference towards these kids, he serves as a grounded antagonist that leaves you wondering what he’s gonna say next and when, and almost never disappoints."

Drew Morris

"Flamboyant creative design and a well-matched cast maximize the heart and humor in this ninety-five minute show. Strap in for a wild time at “Ride the Cyclone”—unlike that unlucky rollercoaster, this whirlwind ride delivers laughter and delight."

As The Ghost of Marley in “A Christmas Carol” (NYC)

“Marley’s ghost (Marc Geller) is creepy as can be, making the already chilly theater even more so.”

Neil Genzlinger The New York Times

As The Ghost of Marley in "A Christmas Carol" (The Hanover Theatre)

“Marley's booming, echoing entrance is prefaced with three huge chains unfurling from the stage ceiling to the floor with such rapid dispatch, that it caused many in the audience to snap to startled attention. They'll be expecting that next year, which most likely means that they'll have to come up with something new to rattle our chains. One thing that should be retained, however, is Marc Geller's formidably harrowing, chain-wrapped Marley. Sound designer Nick Joyce amplifies Geller's already intimidating voice so effectively, it sounds like audio 3-D. Marley's spectacular flying effects are provided by ZFX, Inc. ”

Paul Kolas Telegram & Gazette

"Marc Geller's expert portrayal as Marley wins him thunderous applause as he flies out of sight.”

Tony Annicone The Theater Mirror

As Billington/Master Jones in “The Pilgrim Papers”

“Capturing the best comic tone is Marc Geller, who invests all his parts with a wild “Irma Vep” kind of comic spirit...”

Frank Rizzo Variety

“Geller has developed his characters into lovely and discernible folk. He does well with both of them.”

J. Peter Bergman Edge

“...Marc Geller's acerbic dog lover adds in a wry English accent that makes the immigrants' place of origin believable.”

Chesley Plemmons News-Times

“Marc Geller brings life to his two characters, as well as to a stuffed dog.”

Nancy Grossman Broadway World

As Erica/Eric in “Bomber Jackets”

“In this production , the director and a strong cast provide a very eloquent voice.”

D.J.R. Bruckner The New York Times

“...thanks to an entirely believable cast this production makes a powerful point about the visceral nature of stereotypes.”

The New Yorker

“...the acting, particularly by Geller and Furth, has flip authenticity.”

Clive Barnes New York Post

“... extended applause must go to Marc Geller’s stellar performance as Erica.”

The Meridian

As Tennessee Williams in “Adjoining Trances”

“Wrapped up by the fine peformances of Geller and Frontman, Trances is an elegant package celebrating two remarkable figures.”

Sam Whitehead Time Out New York

“Marc Geller creates an indelible portrait of Tennessee Williams that is quite moving.”

Scott & Barbara Siegel Drama-Logue

“Marc Geller brings Williams magically to life.”

As Lord Byron in “The Frankenstein Summer”

“Marc Geller is brilliant ... It is one of the theater season's finest performances.”

Frederick M. Winship UPI

“Geller shines ... sensationally arrogant as Byron, he tossses off caustic lines with poisonous humor while never losing sight of the fellow's humanity...”

Scott & Barbara Siegel

As Nicodemus/Lady Enid in “The Mystery of Irma Vep”

“Of special note is Marc Geller’s portrayal of Nicodemus Underwood, an Igor-like character who is the estate’s caretaker. Sporting a wooden leg and a spine curved to the point of painfulness, Underwood moves about the stage like a World War I tank that’s lost one of its treads. It is a yeoman’s effort on Geller’s part, added to which he must appear as the new lady of the manor, Lady Enid, Alcazar, an Egyptian tomb robber, and Pev Amri, the beautiful mummy who comes to life when a curse is broken. In a quick-change tour de force at the end of the third act, Underwood and Lady Enid (both played by Geller) have a quick-fire exchange with each other on the veranda.”

Geary Danihy Danbury News Times

“The Seven Angels production (of Irma Vep) features Marc Geller and Tom Souhrada in the quick-change marathon and they're both priceless comics...the fun of "Irma Vep" is in the split-second timing of the actors, who truly amaze us with their physical dexterity and the clever shadings they put on their characters.”

Chesley Plemmons News-Times

“I was thoroughly entertained by the two member cast, Marc Geller and Tom Souhrada, who alternately play the parts of Jane, Nicodemus, Lady Enid, Lord Edgar, an intruder, Alcazar, Pev Amri, and Irma Vep. How they did the costume changes I'll never know, but they did them, and thoroughly and quickly so that the audience literally gasped as Marc Geller ran offstage left dressed like an Egyptian Princess and sauntered onstage right dressed as Alcazar... my head was spinning!”

Francis Chamberlain The Heritage Villager

“...with top drawer performances by Marc Geller and Tom Souhrada, this version is about as good as it gets...In one tour de force scene, Nicodemus and Lady Enid, (both played by Marc Geller) have a highly emotional conversation just outside the French doors, where the audience can hear them both talking, and see first one, then the other, as they hug, until finally one arm becomes a hairy groping paw.”

Julie Stern The Newtown Bee

“...the most amazing aspect of the play is the mammoth maneuverings of the two actors (Marc Geller & Tom Souhrada) who play all eight roles, changing genders as quickly and easily as one might exchange a hat...with split second timing they appear, disappear and reappear in completely new personas before you can say “who is that masked man?”

Bonnie Goldberg Middletown Press

As Cedric West in “Critical Mass”

“And the award for scene stealer goes to Marc Geller as magazine editor, Cedric. He commands the stage with a Noel Coward-esque dryness that brightens each scene.”

Karen Totora The Happiest Medium

“The standout performance is that of Marc Geller as Cedric West, the editor of Opera World.”

William Coyle Off Off Online

“As Cedric, the editor of Opera World, Marc Geller is hilarious with an exaggerated snootiness that delights.”

Cindy Pierre Stage and Cinema

As Joshua/Cathy in “Cloud 9”

“Marc Geller in particular is a stand-out. You can’t keep your eyes off Geller, whose every gesture is fascinating.”

Helen Harvey Show Business

“Mr. Geller nearly stops the show as the African servant Joshua and Lin’s little daughter Cathy.”

Martin Denton

“Geller is hilarious and convincing as both Joshua and Cathy. Sometimes, the best performances aren't on Broadway.”

Jay Burstein Good Times

As Brian in “Shopping and Fucking”

“...Geller finds the most sinuous and daring notes as the mock-refined Brian ... He’s an actor with the rare gift to be explosive, then purring, then explosive again without seeming like a marionette.”

Jeremiah Kipp Show Business

“The cast is damn near perfect. Geller is creepy fun as the demented drug lord.”

Jason Clark Matinee Magazine

“Marc Geller, stalwart character actor of the downtown scene, is a towering Brian. A must-see.”

Martin Denton

As Oscar Wilde in “Naked Will”

“As Wilde, Geller plays the genius fop with an appropriate mix of camp and arrogance.”

“Marc Geller has impressive balance, intelligence, and control in his role as Oscar Wilde...”
