"'Invader' stars Vero Maynez in a strong yet vulnerable classic Final Girl performance as Ana" -Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

"Keating goes for nervous, jittery camerawork intended to put us in the same shaken state of mind as Ana, played with a gripping mix of distress and resolve by Maynez" -Michael Gingold, Rue-Morgue

"Maynez carries that authenticity. Ana never feels written, she feels alive. Her confusion, anger, fear—all of it runs together in a way that reflects what the audience is experiencing in each moment. Her limited screentime with Colin Huerta introduces enough tenderness to give the sense of terror real depth." - George Wolf, Columbus Underground



"On the subject of drugs and higher powers the play is especially moving, as the key outsider character enters in its second half--Loren (Vero Maynez)... Maynez and Bernard both give standout performances as witty and dry non-Dahls who are looking in on all these dynamics." -Jay Barmann, SFist

"Yet a seemingly minor character, with relatively few (but beautifully concise) lines and played so unflappably by Maynez, makes a strong impression." -Jean Schiffman, Bay City News



"Vero’s performance is subtle but powerful, bringing you to tears with just a look." -Julie Goldsberry, Chicago On Stage

"played to perfection by Vero Maynez" -Alan Bresloff, Around the Town Chicago

"As Chione, Vero Maynez is absolutely captivating as the young Snow Queen. " -Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review



"Acting for Zoom has proved challenging for many actors, but Ms. Maynez is at once vulnerable, conflicted, assured, lost, peaceful and, most of all, constantly in discovery. Her reactions are so organic that it makes playwright Noelle Viñas’s naturalistic, slice-of-life dialogue shine...I would come back just to see Maynez; she really is a wonder."

-Tony Frankel, Stage and Cinema

"'Feel the Spirit' follows a young gay Latina pastor, Gabriella (terrific Vero Maynez)...It is refreshing to experience a contemporary play that portrays religious faith with purity, conviction and honesty. When Vero Maynez, as Gabby, looks directly into the camera and smiles broadly and virtuously, it’s compelling. We genuinely believe that she believes. It is a tribute to Vero Maynez’s talent and the vision of Noelle Viñas, the playwright. "

-Emily S. Mendel, Berkeleyside

"Vero Maynez as Gabriela is vivacious and compelling."

-Nicole Gluckstern, KQED

"Both Pounders and Maynez (who is Chicago-based, another perk of casting an online production) create entirely real characters within the few life-of-a-Mayfly minutes they have. I always want to see more of the versatile Pounders — and will now add Maynez to my “actors to watch” list."

-Jan Farrington, Theatre Jones



"Similarly excellent performances with sensitivity to the age of the characters come from Vero Maynez as little Iphigenia..."-Laura Gawlinski, Loyola University Chicago Classical Faculty Studies Faculty Publications and Other Works
