"Marilyn Caserta, who plays the part of Sally, delivers a stunning performance. Her stage presence is nothing less than world class. She is a truly vivacious talent, and could reprise the role on Broadway."
- Coral Gables the Magazine
"Caserta makes a fascinating Sally, a role she played for Area Stage in its student production six years ago. Visually, she looks like a kewpie doll with shining needy eyes and effusive energy. Emotionally, Caserta bravely tracks Sally’s arc from carefree cluelessness to deterioration into tortured denial. Her initial numbers are performed with undiluted joy of someone who savors the status of being the headliner at a popular club, totally ignorant that her talent is limited and the venue is tawdry. Caserta’s clarion voice belts 'Don’t Tell Mama,' and her 'Mein Herr' scorches the auditorium walls...Working with Rodaz and Duerr, she delivers the title number precisely as it should be: an agonized cry of someone desperately trying to block out the truth, not some jubilant celebration as so many pop renditions have criminally twisted it into. During the course of the song, Caserta morphs from writhing in the vise of encroaching truths to a fierce affirmation of what she knows is a doomed choice."
- Bill Hirschman, Florida Theatre On Stage
"Caserta, who started as an Area Stage Conservatory student and is now an Equity actor based in New York, is the performer who shines brightest in this 'Cabaret.' She belts with the best of ‘em on 'Mein Herr,' 'Maybe This Time' and the title song. She dances up a storm (the fine choreography is by Rebecca Ashton, who also plays one of the Kit Kat Girls), and she conveys Sally’s appeal, her nearly unsinkable optimism and her considerable flaws."
- Christine Dolen, The Miami Herald
"While the singing is strong, we must single out Marilyn Caserta, who plays unpredictable cabaret performer Sally Bowles. Her rendition of the title song is superb. She understands what this song is about...As she sings the show-stopping song, Caserta looks teary-eyed. Nevertheless, she forces a smile while beckoning us to 'come to the cabaret.' As the song progresses, her self-confidence grows. Clear defiance creeps into Caserta’s voice as she proclaims, 'I Love a Cabaret.'"
