“This cast is sublime. Anna Jordan is ethereal. She is slight, so when Olsen lifts her, we can sense she is light as a fairy. She points her toes. Every movement is graceful as a ballerina. Jordan's entire performance is mesmerizing. Barefoot, garbed in a lovely bohemian looking dress designed with varying fabrics and hemlines (Costume Designer Jenny Pool), she is the expression of freedom in the role of a slave.” Christine Swerczek, Broadway World.
The beauty of Anna Jordan’s performance as Nimmee made me want to weep. She has an absolutely phenomenal physicality that makes for great pantomime. You can feel and see the fear in her tense body whenever the Witch is around. Her selling of the routine physical abuse dealt to her by the Witch is spot on.” Christopher Elston, Creating Contemplation.
“Jordan portrays every emotion without words, but still gives a powerful portrayal of her character’s innately magical abilities and prowess.” Natalie McGovern, The Reader
“In short, the new play at the Blue Barn is everything theater can be. It doesn’t need elaborate or expensive embellishments or more than an hour and change to tell a warm, fully realized and absolutely irresistible story.” Betsie Freeman, Omaha World Herald.
“Early in the show, the character of Caroline refers to herself as “small, but mighty”. However, small, but fierce might be a better descriptor. In the hands of Anna Jordan, the character is simply acting gold. Ms. Jordan brings a real sense of anger, distrust, and determination to the role.” Christopher Elston, Creating Contemplation.
“Two talented, experienced and dynamic actors carry this thought-provoking production effortlessly, and their honest expression is what drives the intensity. Anna Jordan as Caroline is powerful, relatable, and gives a sincere, raw performance.” Natalie McGovern, The Reader.
“Through it all, Smith and Jordan interact so organically that you’re right there in her room with them, remembering when you were getting to know your first boyfriend. Their performances indicate résumés a mile long, not those of relative beginners.” Betsie Freeman, Omaha World Herald.
“While UNO Theatre regularly performs their own productions each semester, many students and alumni make an impact by performing locally at one of the many metro area theatres. However, very rarely does an entire production have such strong UNO ties.” Charley Steed, UNO College of Communication, Fine Arts, and Media.
“‘It has been amazing to discover (Caroline’s) journey,’ Jordan said. ‘I find myself in her. She’s kind of who I was and who I wanted to be in high school.’” Betsie Freeman, Omaha World Herald.
“Anna Jordan is a joy as George, who speaks only in expressive “monkey talk.” She conveyed a lot of meaning through movement.” Betsie Freeman, Omaha World Herald.
