Quotes & Highlights
- "It’s hard to imagine anybody inhabiting the role more convincingly than soap opera veteran Judith Chapman. Her mastery of Leigh’s mannerisms -- that cat-that-got-the-cream smile, that icy stare, that lilting voice -- is uncanny." --<a target="_blank" href="http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/culturemonster/2011/08/theater-review-rogue-machines-vivien-at-theatre-theater.html"><em>Los Angeles Times</em></a>
- "Actor Judith Chapman and director Elina de Santos offer much to savor in this smart and elegant showcase ... [<em>Vivien</em>] strikes a perfect balance between surveying her career and illuminating the joys and despair she experienced. This is a bravura performance, through and through." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.backstage.com/bso/reviews-la-theatre/vivien-1005318722.story"><em>Back Stage</em></a> (Critic's Pick)
- "It's passionate, theatrical and thoroughly engaging as Chapman and Leigh connect on more than one plateau. She lives and breathes this role, as hers is a dexterously physical and brilliantly impassioned tour-de-force performance. <em>Vivien</em> is not to be missed!" --<a target="_blank" href="http://losangeles.broadwayworld.com/article/Judith-Chapman-Lovingy-Essays-Vivien-at-Rogue-Machine-20110816">broadwayworld.com</a>
- "This is simply terrific. What an extraordinary piece of writing. Rick Foster's range of understanding and recreating Vivien amazed and moved me with every page; all so marvelously in character." —Tarquin Olivier, Vivien Leigh's Stepson
