Winner of the 2011 Camera Eye Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Dramatic Role for Mel in God’s Ear with The Catamounts, Boulder CO

 

Nominated for Camera Eye Award in 2008 for Best performance by an actress in a comedy in 

 

The House of Yes with square product theatre.

 

Spirits to Enforce by Mickle Maher

 

Denver Westord by Juliet Wittman 10.13.2015

One of the best sequences is an almost actual dialogue between two characters: Ariel, played with charm and vivacity by Meridith C. Grundei, argues with — or at — Adelman’s Ocean about which of them can claim credit for the great storm that gives Shakespeare’s play its name and begins the action. 

 

Messenger #1 by Mark Jackson

Nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy as Messenger #3 for 2012 True West Awards

 

The Three Faces of Dr. Crippen by Emily Schwartz

Denver Westword by Juliet Wittman 02.7.2012

The whole production is original and very entertaining, but it's Meridith C. Grundei — small, graceful, dark, pouty and vivacious — who brings the stage to life every time she enters as Cora. Her strange little jumps and off-key singing when Cora performs (while audience members exclaim, "She's truly dreadful") are one of the evening's high points. And so is her murder, which seriously pisses her off.

 

God’s Ear by Jenny Schwartz

 

Winner of the 2011 Camera Eye Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Dramatic Role for Mel in God’s Ear

 

“This was an emotionally courageous and technically superb turn by Grundei as a grieving mother.”  

 

The Boulder Daily Camera by Mark Collins 10.5.2011

“But it's Grundei's performance, specifically her emotionally naked wail near the play's end that finally breaks through the play's thick crust of ice. It's a stunning moment, one that expresses in purest human form the pain of the story.”

 

Mr. Spacky...the Man Who Was Continuously Followed by Wolves by Emily Schwartz

 

The Denver Post by Bob Bows 3.31.2011

“Grundei's quirky cutup is a laugh a minute, topped by some spiffy dance moves that more than justify her tutu-like get-up.”

                                         

The Denver Theatre Examiner by Deb Flomberg 4.13.2011

“the show is completely stolen by Meredith Grundei as Edwina. Grundei inhabits the role like a cartoon character, but somehow manages to keep it grounded and believable. She is side-splittingly funny with excellent timing and perfect physicality. Truly, Grundei is an actress to be watching.”

 

The Boulder Daily Camera by Mark Collins 3.31.2011

Edwina (a delightful Meridith C. Grundei).

 

The House of Yes by Wendy MacLeod

*Nominated for Camera Eye Award in 2008 for Best performance by an actress in a comedy in The House of Yes with square product theatre.

 

Breton’s Dream

The San Francisco Examiner by Rob Hurwitt 2000

 

“a remarkable opening mechanical-ballerina dance sequence by Meridith Crosley.”
