What The Media Has To Say About

“Her impressive talent and imaginative metamorphosis evolve a warm rapport with the audience and strike a deliciously charming note…A must see.”

-Boston Globe

“Giardella is a phenomenon…a classic actress…an intelligent clown.”

-Tel Aviv Haeer

“A talented and gifted actress…”

-Boston Herald

“An enormously talented performer/improviser with a dancer’s agility and a blues belter’s larynx…her characters have heft and the advantage of surprise.”

-Boston Phoenix

“It’s an understatement to say that Giardella is excellent…the audience is witnessing true art…great drama… Daena Giardella is a wonderfully talented performer.”

-Bay Windows

“Bare Essentials soars with the fullness of Giardella’s vision…she ranges from humor to pathos and turns a simple newspaper reading into a battle with the brutalities of modern life.”

-New England Entertainment Digest

“Daena Giardella explodes on the stage. She inhabits its every inch like a hologram: inside out, upside down, right side up…powerful physically and impeccable comic timing.”

-Boston Citizen Journal

“Daena thrills the audience with an electrifying gallery of characters who transform unpredictably as they reflect the many faces of being human.”


“Giardella’s performance is remarkable…Giardella, who is about as freewheeling and uninhibited a performer as you’ll find in Boston, takes the audience on a journey to their own inner worlds and beyond through the use of her characters…Giardella is no ordinary performer. She’s a multi-dimensional expressionist…Her range of skills is wide, and the quick changes from a child to an Italian grandfather or a vampiric femme fatale, are indeed remarkable. The free-flow sense of immediacy and spontaneity are fresh, and the sense of not knowing what’s going to happen next keeps audiences on the edge of their seats.”

-The Patriot Ledger

“An amazing array of characters…The changes are swift, fluid and incredibly integrated…the show is filled with humor, with energy, with contact…terrific entertainment…The way she uses her voice, her expression, and her body, sometimes flowing, sometimes leaping from one wacky character to another, is so facile that she doesn’t need props to help her out…a marvelous creation.”

-High Performance Magazine
