"Karin Webb turns in one of the show’s finest performances as a nauseating Kathy Lee-Hoda hybrid newscaster. The veteran performance artist clearly knows how to work a stage and an audience."
- BOSTON METRO ["Music, Mayhem and Multimedia Madness!", by Hans Wendler, May 10, 2012]
"That said, a few performances stood out the night I attended. ... Karin Webb, smoothly energetic and disturbingly easy in the role of talk-show host Hannah Montenegro, and later in a Devo-cum-S&M vignette."
- THE NEW ENGLAND THEATRE GEEK ["28 SEEDS: Be a part of Boston History", by John Herring, April 27, 2012]
"...drive the story and laughs, with ample help from Karin Webb as a bubbly, box-of-rocks dumb news reader who shines in this production."
- DORCHESTER REPORTER ["Walter Sickert & Army of Broken Toys fuel steamy sci-fi theater ride", by Bill Forry, May 2, 2012
"The sum of their combined training produces comic skits that routinely dazzle audiences. “If grannies, mustachioed weirdos and other outrageous characters can be hot alongside our boy band heartthrobs, then count us in!” "
- GO MAGAZINE ["100 Women We Love: Class of 2011", by Kat Long, June 17,2011]
"Bent Wit was created and is co-produced by Jill Gibson and local performer Karin Webb, who’ve been putting on intelligent and edgy cabaret shows for ten years, achieving kind of a growing ‘cult status’ amongst a Boston audience interested in something unique and challenging."
- BOSTON SURVIVAL GUIDE ["Musings from Boston", May 9, 2010]
"Each of the Men has regular characters in her repertoire — Rico [played by Karin Webb] is one of them, and Gibson frequently plays a frisky, 80-year-old woman named Mary — but onstage they are chameleonic raconteurs, performing precisely rehearsed lip-synched skits and donning up to 10 different costumes apiece... ...It’s performance art united by its unique statement about gender."
- BOSTON PHOENIX ["Socks Appeal", by Caitlin E. Curran, July 9, 2008]
“The troupe boasts some serious talent that is deftly adapted to several different styles of performance…from the disturbingly effective…to fantastic comic effect. All are gifted entertainers that prove the entire troupe to be one of the city’s most entertaining acts.”
- BAY WINDOWS [by Ryan Lindsey]
"Karin Webb’s Lisa was no less convincing a writer in infancy than Ms. Carroll’s Ruth in maturity; her artistic core little more than a seed; her flesh, still dominating. (Ah, but how subtly Ms. Webb changed all that!) During intermission, I overheard two women discussing the first act; one woman said, “The Lisa in New York was far more ruthless.” Apples and oranges, of course, but casting the cuddly Ms. Webb blurred the issues in the right way and balanced the debate --- Ms. Webb’s Lisa was not evil but self-absorbed, a combination of green heart and troubled childhood; of testing the waters and then boldly plunging in; she might indeed have been acting out of innocence --- like, if there’s something to write about, why not write it? A hard, knowing Lisa would have gotten nowhere with Ms. Carroll’s eagle-eyed Ruth --- Ms. Webb’s Lisa, however, went far with her artless charm and the tragedy was all the more heartbreaking for it."
