Acclaim for “The Model Apartment”

The most challenging role, however, and the one which drives the story, belongs to [Annika] Marks. Its not easy portraying outrageousness without taking it over the top. But Marks never does…
-Deborah Klugman, LA Weekly

…no one can deny the absolutely astonishing Geffen debut performance of Ms. Marks. It is a tour de force effort born of two talented creative individuals – Ms. Marks and director Mazor.
Desert Local News

…it is the always astonishing Marks whose Debby will have you mesmerized, disturbed, shocked (often into horrified laughter), and shattered, and whose Deborah will haunt you as she does Max.
-Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA

…the four actor-five character piece is a triumph for Annika Marks, who plays two radically different daughters with such finesse one actor seems to be missing from the curtain call. So Cal Arts & Entertainment

“The Model Apartment” runs through November 20th. Tickets are on sale at Geffen Playhouse.
