"(As) young Abigail Williams (a perfectly cast Dani Stoller) who casts a seductive eye at Proctor and subtly ringleads the “possessed” girls." - The Washington Post
"Stoller’s interpretation is strong and piercing..." - DC Metro Theater Arts
"An all-star ensemble!" - BroadwayWorld
"Stoller is absolutely convincing..." - DC Theatre Scene
"Ms. Stoller is truly effective in this role." - MD Theatre Guide
As You Like It
Folger Shakespeare Theater
"The shepherd Silvius (Brian Reisman) can’t pry his eyes off a woman in pink overalls named Phoebe, whose highly involved logic is practically a stand-up comedy routine as played by Dani Stoller."
- The Washington Post
"...comedy chops are matched by Dani Stoller as Phoebe. Introduced late in the story, Phoebe pursues Rosalind after falling for her disguise as the young man Ganymede in more ways than one. Stoller breaks out from her role in the ensemble and quickly establishes this late-coming character as a force to be reckoned through bold physicality and expressions."
"One of the most distinct...character portrayals is by Dani Stoller as a love-torn Phoebe. Stoller is a wild hoot of an interpretation of a woman in love who may be misjudging her love object. She simply throws herself into the role as if working without a net."
"Dani Stoller as the scorned, and scorning, Phoebe infuses much enjoyable snark into her lines and also demonstrates a keen intuition for physical comedy."
Washington Shakespeare Company/Avant Bard
"Dani Stoller gives a standout performance as Olivia, giving her a sensual and flirty persona that is further amplified by her club singing performance." - DC Theatre Scene
"The show benefits from Stoller’s splendidly flirtatious, self-aware Olivia." - The Washington Post
"Stoller (has) breakout comic moments...as a rock video vixen who’s immune to the charms of the lustful Orsino." - MetroWeekly
"As Olivia, a singer with a residency at the club, Dani Stoller is at ease with the surviving Elizabethan verse...watch her (deftly) negotiate the play’s pivots into modern speech and its at-least-as-daunting variances in tone..." - Washington City Paper
Folger Shakespeare Theatre
"Dani Stoller as Jessica Is equally skilled with the stylized modern moments of humor or very movingly demonstrating what Jessica is and is not willing to compromise."- Broadway World
"Dani Stoller is delightful in a woman in love who also misses what she left behind."- mdtheatreguide
"Shakespeare wouldn’t be Shakespeare without his twit-witted ingénues in love; naturally Posner’s take on the Bard is no different. Jessica (Dani Stoller) and Lorenzo (William Vaughan) are two such young lovers and fall in step with one another’s adorably awkward flirtations as the play progresses. Stoller and Vaughan portray the pair respectively like two coy moths caught and consumed by the dazzling, blazing flame of the other. Vaughan, who affects a slight southern twang to his cowboy-inspired character, is earnest in his emotional displays toward Stoller’s character. Their tender and touching exchange of sentiment during the star-hunt for the Sabbath scene tugs at the heartstrings."
The Good Counselor
"...the company has mounted a searing production, urgently acted and handsomely wrought."
- Washington Post
"Stoller’s haunted eyes and erratic speech patterns belie the humanity of the desperate young mother who is just trying to do the best she can."
"The Good Counselor” is an evening of riveting performances."

“Dani Stoller plays the over-the-top ‘The Whore’ with passion.” – mdtheatreguide
“The lithe Dani Stoller, who (does her) best to steal the show. Stoller is entrancing as "the whore." The total physicality of her performance dominates the stage whenever she is on it. It's no wonder she is the one Poe always turns to, even while married to his adoring adolescent wife.” – Huffington Post
“Dani (Stoller) is fearless at jumping off of theatrical cliffs.” – mdtheatreguide
"As Elvira, the mischievous ghost, Stoller kicks off her fancy shoes — the practically weightless royal blue gown that set and costume designer Steven Royal creates for her is terrific — and plays the femme phantom with vampy verve. Her devil-may-care zest gets closest to the fizz and giddiness you’re hoping for.” – Washington Post
“The play's best moments come as the writer's now quite dead first wife (a passionate, curvy, Dani Stoller who appears to have channeled Bernadette Peters in appearance, cadence and physicality) appears. When she arrives, the show moves into a good-hearted tizzy.” – Connection Newspapers
