Young Little Edie in Grey Gardens, Cape Playhouse

With her slightly goony smile and subtly stricken posture (something indefinable is off), Reseland is absolutely perfect as the doomed ingenue, and she lends her songs - especially ‘Daddy’s Girl’...tremendous poignancy, without milking the lyrics for pathos.
— Sandy MacDonald, The Boston Globe
Playing 20 year-old Little Edie in Act 1, actress Vanessa Reseland has a beautiful, almost operatic voice. Little Edie’s misery at finding out her mother has chased away Kennedy is palpable.

Lizzie in Baby, Pennsylvania Centre Stage

Many years of theater-going have left me somewhat jaded and uneasy to impress. It’s not often therefore, that I get goose bumps from a performance. Yet at the end of Act I, when Vanessa Reseland delivered her tour de force with a song called “The Store Goes On,” I did.

Reseland was excellent and totally believable as the young, modern college woman, steadfastly refusing to let herself be dragged into the mundane world of marriage.
— Harry Zimbler, Centre Daily Times
Vanessa Reseland is radiant as the expectant Lizzie. Her welling-eyed sadness as Danny packs off for a band tour is compelling, and her singing shines, such as in “The Story Goes On.

Betty Schaefer in Sunset Boulevard, Pioneer Theatre
