Theater work:

“Ms. Woolley is hilariously eviscerating in her depiction of flaky egocentrism and parental absenteeism.” — Andy Webster, New York Times

“All (characters) are desperately pursuing fame of a sort, and all are compellingly portrayed by Ms. Woolley.” — Andy Webster, New York Times

“As an actress, she skillfully employs moments of silence that allow her audience to breathe.” — Andy Webster, New York Times

“Woolley exhibits an exquisite command of voice and body as she seamlessly transforms from one character to the next, bestowing each role with a complex range of emotions and mannerisms.” — Amy Stringer, Show Business Weekly

“Woolley’s knowing, spot-on portrayals of hipsters in their unique little worlds are searingly recognizable as well as extremely funny.” — This Week in New York

“Overall, this is a scintillating night in an intimate theatre with two very talented performers, which opens the door to many possible reactions and discussions. Real and raw, this is, in many ways, exactly what indie theatre in New York City should be.” — Jamie Rosler, The Public Reviews

“Woolley crosses barriers of gender, age, and ethnicity as she successively transforms from her central male character, Wythe, into his pill-popping grandmother from whom he borrows money; a sex-starved single mother who hires him to babysit her overactive son; and finally, a middle-aged Polish realtor who shows him an overpriced Brooklyn apartment.” Hayley Levitt, Theatermania

“Woolley is convincing as she transforms into each character in seamless transitions.” — Rochelle Denton, NY Theater Now

“Wythe’s adventures in survival allow Ms. Woolley to paint a detailed portrait of a neighborhood and its inhabitants.  She has a good eye and ear and, more importantly, a good sense of humor.” — Joel Benjamin, Theater Pizzazz

“Actress Nora Woolley has a good handle on Vivian’s theatricality and deceptive double thrust, delivering the character’s laid-back act and subtle aggressiveness with a cunning, blissed-out grin.” — Nelson Pressley, Washington Post

“…a defensive act that Woolley portrays with just enough conviction to keep us on our toes.” — Jolene Munch, Metro Weekly

Film work:

“The principal actors — Mr. Daniels, Irving Gregory, Noel Dinneen, Sam Zuckerman, Debbie Troche and Nora Woolley — do a good job of conveying professionalism under duress.” — A.O. Scott, New York Times

“Even with a separation from realism, the raw dialogue and facts-first approach humanizes the actors more than an A-list star ever could. That’s a testament to the performers enlisted by Berger and Michelson — you never once question their legitimacy as they sound off with technical airplane lingo or bark orders at the other crew members.” — Hollywood

“…the piece (Charlie Victor Romeo) is so effectively performed that it turns knuckles white.”– Steve Dollar, Green Cine dot com

“…the actors never skewering their portrayals to allow blame or sentimentality.” — Wes Greene, Slant Magazine
