As Maggie, Karla Mason has the tough task of creating two distinct characters -- Jake's real wife and the idealized, adoring version in his mind - and she pulls off the switch briskly, with a blend of brittle and soft…

Jake’s Women
Bob Hicks, The Oregonian

Karla Mason puts forth a strong performance as Ouisa Kittridge, member of the upper class tenuously hanging on to (her) social status and convenient class assumptions. (Mason) is well known to the Portland theater community, and comfortable on the Profile stage.

It’s Only a Play
Michael McGregor, The Oregonian

Karla Mason makes a superb Rep debut as the artsy-flaky Beth, swerving credibly from gaiety to tears in the opening scene, and veering flamboyantly afterwards from rage and resentment to effervescence and euphoria.

Dinner with Friends
Creative Loathing

The Hippodrome production works like a sequence of beautifully timed fireworks, and the ensemble acting is nothing short of brilliant…Mason is multifaceted and appealing.

Private Eyes
The Gainesville Sun

Karla Mason as Stella Kowalski is the best I have seen, and I have made a number of visits to ‘Streetcar’.
