For her on stage portrayal of Cynthia in Official Lunch, critics said: "The evening's most seductive and memorable performance, Hannah Beck is a lithe and potent force on stage." 
Additional stage appearances include: Roberta in the Off Broadway production of John Patrick Shanley's Danny and The Deep Blue Sea, directed by Helen Hayes nominated Peter Allas, and Masha in the US premiere of Lucy Caldwell’s Irish adaptation of Three Sisters directed by Obie Award winner and Drama Desk nominated Christopher McCann. Her performance in Three Sisters earned her the following review: “The smoldering Beck was warming up to a tryst just inches from my seat. Goosebumps betrayed my own human weakness and showed her sublime acting."

Other nominations include Best Actress by the TheaterMaker Awards for her appearance alongside Wayne Wilcox (Gilmore Girls, Rent) in  Til There Was You, a new play that was presented virtually.
