“Morris Panych, who directed Mackie in his play, Gordon, told The Sun, “Pippa is awesome; a very inventive and very intuitive actor. She makes herself available to the creative process and is completely engaged. And she’s funny, and observant. And a little bit cruel – in only the best way.”

https://www.straight.com/arts/fall-arts-preview-pippa-mackie-learns-harness-her-energy “If you’re lucky, you saw that show at the Firehall this June or at last summer’s Vancouver International Fringe Festival, and you know how winning Mackie’s combination of confidence and comic sensibilities can be.” – Colin Thomas

“Pippa Mackie’s great restraint is perhaps most evident in the opening scenes, as she builds her portrayal of Pam line by line, beat by straight-laced beat into a modern marvel of restrained moderation, until the audience knows surely something is going to blow. When it does, Mackie delivers in bombshell fashion.” – Review Vancouver

“It’s hard to keep your eyes off Pippa Mackie who plays Pam, the sweetly naive spouse who has the biggest epiphany of the evening, with a transformation that is simply astounding to witness. When she is called upon to cry, she cries. When she is called upon to be hysterical, she walks the edge. When she is called upon to have an orgasm, she puts Meg Ryan in her place.” – See more at: http://vancouverpresents.com/theatre/theatre-review-hunter-gatherers-bloody-brilliant/#sthash.SNLwdd2P.dpuf

“Mackie steals the show, getting laughs and giggles practically every time she moves and speaks,” –Review Vancouver http://www.reviewvancouver.org/th_sylvia12.htm

“Mackie makes Abby funny but never silly, volatile as teens can be but very likeable. If you wanted any kind of teenager living in your basement, she’d be the kind you’d want.” – the Province

“Pippa Mackie is a powerhouse in the role of Hannah, the bastard child who manages to insert herself into the merry band of female actors”   – See more at: http://vancouverpresents.com/theatre/theatre-review-miss-shakespeare-takes-aim-feminism-arts/#sthash.Iga3AHLM.dpuf
