Nice things people have said about Carrie in Death Ship 666:
‘…among my personal favourites were Carrie Marx, who played the overzealous tour guide and has us in fits of giggles as child Holly Hobby…’ – Everything Theatre
‘Specially noteworthy is Carrie Marx, who pulls off an adorably grumpy child detective, but really the whole cast is brilliant, working together seamlessly and pulling off some great physical comedy.’ – British Theatre Guide
‘Carrie Marx is dynamic and loveable in each persona she brings to the stage, from the curious and clever Holly Hobby to the skittish and homicidal Tour Guide. Her commitment to each different character brings greater variety to an already diverse ensemble.’ – The Upcoming
And for ‘The Boy Who a Was Woody Allen’:
‘…Carrie Marx stands out through her clever and varied characterisations. A highlight of the play is her opening performance of first wife Valhalla – which is executed with wit and conviction.’
And for ‘Arthur Smith Sings Leonard Cohen Volume Too’:
‘With glamour supplied in abundance by the Smithereens, his backing band of subtly understated but uber-talented chanteuse and musicians; Kirsty, Carrie and Ali, the aural texture was as rich as the comic content.’ – The Argus
‘…able, attractive support from Kirsty Newton, Carrie Marx and Ali Day – whom he calls the Smithereens but might be dubbed “Arthur’s Angels”.’ – The Telegraph
