Artistic Director Margarette Joyner, in a rare onstage appearance as Red, in For Colored Girls... brings chills with her horrid tale of the unspeakable carnage that results when a woman named Crystal refuses to marry the father of her two young children. ~ Julinda Lewis, Special Correspondent, Richmond, VA

I saw one African-American interpretation. “My Story; My Voice,” is the heart-wrenching tale of Betty, a woman who was enslaved by a wealthy family in Williamsburg. Put together from the fragments of documents that remain, the one-woman show charts Betty’s childhood, including the moment her mother is sold to another family and, later, Betty’s transfer to the family plantation. Records show, the actor-interpeter Margarette Joyner told the audience, that by the time she was 50, Betty was listed as “worthless.” ~ Sebastian Modak, New York Times

Margarette Joyner’s performance in Animal Control is not only compelling, but adds a welcome dab of humor. ~ TVJerry Podcast, Richmond, VA

Margarette Joyner delivers a riveting performance as Anna, and powerfully narrates what led Anna to the window and her awful moment of decision. ~ "Anna" Menokin Speaker 2019 Series, Richmond, VA

Margarette Joyner is very good as the confident Sadie Logan. Her reactions are superb and she gives a very fine performance. Her musical numbers remind me of the top rhythm and blues tracks. ~ Brian Hoffman, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Coral Springs, FL
