“Mathieson’s performance is nothing short of amazing… she embodied each character, seamlessly shifting between narration and dialogue, expressing their terror, insecurities, even their humility… She makes you feel totally captivated and invested.”
- Vanessa Giron, Witness Performance 2018
“The star that is Caitlin Mathieson commanded the space for just over an hour, embodying different characters as she told four classic tales of terror. I was in awe of Caitlin Mathieson’s ability to smoothly glide from scene to scene, from character to character with a great command of text. There were points where she absolutely embodied the people in the stories, moving around the church with her wonderfully expressive voice and face which drew the audience in.”
- Joana Simmons, Theatre Press 2018
“Night Terrors is wonderfully performed by Caitlin Mathieson… showing the strength and versatility of the actor.”
- Angela Perez, Be Melbourne 2018
"Caitlin Mathieson simply embodied ‘Olive’. Her portrayal was natural... Her quaintness was pure gold and allowed for a strong contrast to the raw emotion that poured out during ‘The I Love You Song’."
- Krystal Holzer, Theatrepeople 2016
"Mathieson in particular brings a deeply compelling current of emotional vulnerability to her portrayal, gently tugging on the heartstrings without overindulging in this pathos."
