...we are thrown back to 1965, in which the heartbreakingly fresh-faced Emma Geer plays her at 19.” -Jesse Green, The New York Times.

”The film focuses on the classic setup of William having a crush on one friend, Alexa, but a close previously platonic relationship with a girl reveals to be a more ideal partner, played by Emma Geer, a natural performer in an otherwise unforgiving style.
-Review of In The Treetops, 2015, By Jack Moulton, Awards Circuit

I make special mention of young Emma Geer, a 2016 graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts, who brings light and love to the admirable Beatrice, who manages to get through to Jeremy Beck’s “Alan Jeffcote” deliciously but firmly enough to help him grow up. The entire cast is first-rate, but Ms. Geer particularly caught my eye. All in all, this production is a big feather in the cap of the Mint Theater.

Alissa — smart, lovely and good-natured... played by the especially compelling Emma Geer
— Review of In The Treetops, 2015, By The Hollywood Reporter



....The actors playing the two main characters, Emma Geer as Annie Scott and Donald Corren as Thomas Scott, give very fine performances. Natural and believable, they are both magnetic presences on stage and give energy and interest to whatever scene they are in.
— Donna Herman, New York Theatre Guide
In her featured role as Scott’s daughter Annie, the glowing Emma Geer, too, displays a compelling three-dimensionality and transition of moods, bringing to life the young woman’s dissatisfaction, dreams, disappointment, and acceptance.
— Deb Miller, DC Metro Theater Arts
Fittingly, the two standouts are Matthew Brown and the group’s only female friend, Emma Geer, as Alissa. Brown’s film honestly feels tailor made for the pair, who can evoke the story’s ideas without even talking to each other – much like in real life, things are being said when they aren’t, and it’s one of the film’s greatest assets.
