Alex Trow keeps pace with (…) the other fine actors in turns as Alec’s decrepit mother and as a downstairs neighbor.
-Sylviane Gold, The New York Times
As Mrs. Arlington, (…) Trow is sweet in the mannered way of betters to lessers. As Alec’s Mum, she’s a surprise. (…) she speaks from the depths of her dementia, gets the kettle, attempts to make tea, all in a tour de force of muscular memory continuing beyond conscious thought. It stays with you.
-Donald Brown, New Haven Review
Alex Trow makes the most of two (…) very different roles, one of which she turns into a masterful moment of silent Greek tragedy.
-Christopher Arnott, New Haven Advocate
Alex Trow is quite remarkable in two completely different roles, an upscale modern doting mother (…), and Alec's dying mother, whose mumbles, screams, and movements (…) say more about the tragedy of aging than several volumes of essays.
-Andrew Beck, Hartford Arts Examiner
Actress Alex Trow, in the role of Alec’s mum, commands the stage with silence (…) she disappears into the role.
-Madeleine Duff, Yale Daily News
"The eight-person cast is strong throughout, but it is the Hardy family trio that really impresses. Trow is a touching Kate."
-Karl Levett, backstage.com
"The lead actresses give credible performances..."
-Anita Gates, The New York Times
"Alex Trow and Rowan Michael Meyer play our young lovers to be, Kate and Tom, and I have to say, they’re both the real thing. (...) Trow handles the demands of the role with the expertise of a veteran."
-Montserrat Mendez, nytheater.com
"Let me talk about something the production gets absolutely right, casting the simply awesome Alex Trow in the role of Gracie. She is the real deal, and I mean, she will be winning her own Emmy someday. Trow is the kind of actor you rarely ever come across. There are many good actors, there are actors who are great at their craft, but one in a million actors just have star-charisma. It oozes out of them. Trow's performance elevates the material, it also centers the rest of the cast; she is the Nina Arianda of the New York International Fringe Festival."
- Montserrat Mendez, nytheater.com
"Trow is a delight as Gracie, nabbing some of that Lena Dunham (of HBO’s Girls) goofball realness."
- Molly Marinik, theasy.com
"What really raises the bar is the cast. They are perfection turned pluperfect with the guidance of director Ashley Rodbro. Each actor inhabits his or her character with skill and natural ease that makes the audience comfortable with a quick connection. The stand out here is Alex Trow who turns in a brilliant performance as Gracie, a role that almost seems to be written for her. Watch out for this dynamo because she will quickly rise to be noted as an intelligent, gifted actor with charm and appeal."
- Joseph Verlezza, Theater Reviews Limited
"As for the acting, the whole cast is terrific, but Trow deserves special mention. It is so easy to overdo it when you are playing such a hyper character, but she’s got it just right. She makes you fall in love with Gracie."
- Gena Hymowech, showbusinessweekly.com
"Some highpoints of the Cab's recent season (...) for memorable performances, Alex Trow, intelligent and naïve, as Pepper in Debut Track One."
- Donald Brown, New Haven Register
"Special credit to (...) the spirited cast, especially DeMerritt’s moody paternalism and Trow’s applause-demanding grandstanding everytime Taybele expresses views about female and male equality or hypes her knowledge as a doctor."
- Donald Brown on The Yiddish King Lear, New Haven Register
"This segment has a kooky charm and is a welcome change from the intensity of the rest of the show. Trow, as the animator of the rice ball, is superb at mute facial expressions."
- Donald Brown on Of Ogres Retold, newhavenreview.com
Love's Labour's Lost
"The ladies – Dana Green as Rosaline, Alex Trow as Katherine, and Sherill Turner as Maria – are lovely and lively enough to distract any men from their betterment."
- Cristofer Gross, theatertimes.org
Summer and Smoke
"Alex Trow made me cry like a baby, and I don’t care who knows it. As Alma Winemiller in the Dramat’s production of Tennesse Williams’ Summer and Smoke at the University Theater, she is an artist of grief and tension who not only steals every scene she is in but also haunts those in which she is absent."
- Austin Bernhardt, Yale Daily News
