"Vanina Kondova stood out as an exceptional talent."

 Neil Pepe,
Artistic Director

"She is incredibly truthful and the camera loves her."

Kalin Ivanov,
Cinematographer

"Her performance was nothing short of fantastic."

Todd Thaler,
Casting Director

"Everything she does onstage is truthful; there is not a fabricated instinct within her. She naturally has a strong exterior, an almost impenetrable demeanor, but she counters this with a keen and subtle vulnerability that creeps up on you. The overall effect is that she has you, the audience, completely in the palm of her hands."

Stephen Brackett,
Director
