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.” -Los Angeles Times
“Actor Judith Chapman and director Elina de Santos offer much to savor in this smart and elegant showcase … Vivien strikes a perfect balance between surveying her career and illuminating the joys and despair she experienced. This is a bravura performance, through and through.” -Back Stage (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. Vivien is not to be missed!” —broadwayworld.com
“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
