"Maegan McConnell (Maria) has an exquisite soprano and powerful acting chops."
-Los Angeles Times
Maegan McConnell: Press
“McConnell is ingratiating – girlish, playful, naïve and innocent – and her singing in character (with an accent, that is) a delight."
-Orange County Register
"... the shattering climax had a lot to do with the electrifying performance of Maegan McConnell, whose angelic voice captures the joy and tragedy experienced by heroine Maria. There isn't a false note in singing or acting in McConnell's consummate portrayal."
"The main women in the cast are the standouts, notably the operatically trained Meagan McConnell as Maria."
"Maegan McConnell's Maria, who charms thoroughly in her vocals and handles the transition from the guileless, giddy ingénue of act one to the young woman who has been forced to grow up all too suddenly through the tragedies of losing both her lover and her brother."
"When opera-trained, almond-skinned Maegan McConnell walked into a Los Angeles audition for the part, "We found our Maria. Maegan looked great and sang beautifully."
