Of Dice and Men, by Cameron McNary, premiered at the PAX conference – a perfect place to do this play about gamers, D&D & friends.
“Another crowd favourite was Jenny Bennett’s character, Linda, whose impersonation of a crass male dwarf had us all in stitches.”
I got to be in the world premiere of Charles Mee’s Coney Island Avenue directed by Anjali Vashi, which ran at New York Theater Workshop.
“When the 19-person cast stands in a line to sing “My Way,” they reveal a mix of colors, shapes, and sizes that makes “A Chorus Line” look like the Rockettes. They sing the song with teeth-grinding anger and rousing fierceness, very much of this world rather than an idealized utopia.”
“Excellent work is done all around, especially by … Jenny Bennett, who shows excellent range as Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein, and Isadora Duncan.”
“… top honors go to the sensational Jenny Bennett as literary pundit and fellow alcoholic Dorothy Parker. She nails both Parker’s devastating wit and intense loneliness in a single scene when she and Fitzgerald have sex on a lark (”penny for your thoughts”). That she is equally delicious in two other cameos as Isadora Duncan and Gertrude Stein is icing on the cake.” – NYC Onstage
