John Russell as John Dashwood and Laura Baranik as Fanny Dashwood in Bedlam's acclaimed Sense and Sensibility

REVIEWS:

Sense and Sensibility

“This hysterical, endlessly inventive production captures Austen's penchant for satire while inducing laughs with an ever-changing set and 10 brilliant actors who never seem to stop moving.” - Theatermania

“High-octane Austen… A bouncy, jaunty take on Austen, with a 10-member cast taking on an assortment of roles that are always clearly defined…”  - New York Times, Ben Brantley

"John Russell is... really good as both the dashing Willoughby and the spineless half-brother of our heroines... his work is impeccable." - Huffington Post

The Seagull

"John Russell anchors the company as both the louche but charming Willoughby and the comically off-point Shamrayev..." - LitroNY

"...an easygoing accessibility that suggests there's no reason to be afraid of Anton Chekhov." -  Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“A riveting, emotionally charged production that makes this play feel more relevant — and intimate — than ever…” - Pete Hempstead, Theatermania

Saint Joan in Houston

"Director Eric Tucker, who was Wall Street Journal Director of the Year in 2014, manages to have only four actors in the entire production, with Spencer Aste, John Russell and Stephan Wolfert playing multiple roles ranging from French kings to English clergy to military leaders—all with aplomb. In fact, these three New York actors are the highlight of the play as they move with ease from role to role." - Doni Wilson, Houstonia
