​MARY POPPIN  | Walnut Street Theatre

"Philadelphia favorite Mary Martello adds the much needed hilarity to her role as the domestic Mrs. Brill."

          ~Broadway World




"In what may be the funniest performance in her long, illustrious career, Mary Martello is excellent as a wealthy American in search of romance and adventure."

          ~Philly Weekly


"Prisco and Martello have such great chemistry and warmth (not to mention comic skill) that their romance gives this outlandish show a needed touch of humanity."

          ~Talkin' Broadway 



BODY AWARENESS | The Wilma Theatre

"Martello’s warmth and comfortableness that brings Joyce to life."

          ~Philadelphia Magazine


"The performances in this play are all first rate. Ms. Martello does a wonderful job as the family mediator, who tries to keep the peace in a household that seems constantly on the verge of a crisis."

          ~Stage Magazine



FIDDLER ON THE ROOF | Walnut Street Theatre

"Jacoby has good comic chemistry with Mary Martello, who plays his wife Golde; in addition, their voices blend beautifully on "Sunrise, Sunset."

          ~Talkin' Broadway



CANDIDE | Arden Theatre Company

"Martello, a Philadelphia pro, has just the right mix of pathos and over-the-top humor and has the audience begging for more."

          ~Broadway Matters


"Mary Martello as the Old Woman is richly comic, especially in her showiest song, “I Am Easily Assimilated."




9 TO 5 | Walnut Street Theatre

"Mary Martello is an untamable force of nature as she tosses aside the de rigueur eyeglasses, undoes the knot of the tie-collar that is part of her blouse, and gyrates suggestively above a sofa bolster in an uninhibited stunner of a turn that transforms the Walnut to Delilah’s Den, sans the poles." 

          ~Neals Paper



DOUBT | Lantern Theatre

"Martello dominates the stage, her cold,unflinching nerve both intimidating and heroic. Rather than see her certainty shaken, we witness Aloysius suffer by "stepping away from God" to battle evil. And to Martello's great credit, she shows the cracks in the iron wall of conscience that whistle-blowers endure."

          ~The Inquirer
