Whitney will be originating the role of Mrs. Mumler in the World Premier of Summerland by Arlitia Jones at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park.

Reviews:


"Finally, there’s the seductive, frightening, intimidating, and mesmerizing Whitney Maris Brown’s take on Mrs. Mumler.  She’s got secret after secret and is one of the most interesting characters – and actresses – we’ve seen on a Playhouse stage this season.  Her beauty belies her danger and the charisma of the actress draws us in even when we feel like we should run far away.  It’s a perfect portrayal, really."

  1. -The Sappy Critic



"And so it is a welcome shock when Mumler’s wife (Whitney Maris Brown) bursts onto the scene mere moments before intermission, in an entrance that spellbinds the audience — and the other characters. Think Lily Munster meets Lady Macbeth."


"I am hesitant to ruin any of the surprise around the play’s greatest mystery, so suffice to say that [the playwright] and actress Brown are Summerland’s saving graces. They bring the chills and the intrigue lacking in the first half."

  1. -City Beat



"Playing Mrs. Mumler, Whitney Maris Brown is mesmerizing as the enigmatic and otherworldly wife and possible conspirator."


"Brown is a force of nature as she assails, cajoles and taunts Mr. Tooker, keeping him completely off balance."


  1. -Behind the Curtain Cincy



"And just when you think you know where all this is going, Mrs. Mumler bursts onto the stage with a fearsome and completely over-the-top entrance that left the opening night audience chattering at intermission. We’re not sure if Whitney Maris Brown’s character is possessed or play-acting or if she is completely mad.” 


‘[S]he dominates the stage."


"Brown lets us see every little nuance of this character. Sometimes she is coarse and deceptive. Others, she is totally unnerving or elegant and formal."
