Review from Anat

The actress is amazing. Unfortunately, the script is boring. Vivien had an interesting life but it wasn't written well, and with no scenery change, no music and almost no custume changes, it was a little
boring.

Review from Alan Trevor

Interesting. Great acting-a real tour de force.

Review from David L.

I thought her portrayal of Vivien Leigh was amazing. She walked on stage and looked just like her. However, just as Ms. Leigh had an accent that made her hard to understand....this accent made it very, very hard and so too many words were lost...continued

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
