'the hilarious Nancy Trotter Landry'
Time Out New York
'[brilliantlove is]... made interesting by the physically and emotionally exhibitionistic, on- and, in fact, over-the-edge performances by Nancy Trotter Landry'
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
'The performances are strong- they're honest, frank, intimate and believable'
'consummate physical comedian'
New York Times
Nancy joined the circus at the age of 19 as a general help and months later was performing as a dancer. Since then she has appeared as a non-drag drag singer, donkey riding Persian orator-king, a neoclassical mad bird charmer, a Transylvanian circus mistress and in this year's production, The Thunders, I am Orphea!, an endearingly innocent and wholesome character essential to the plot line.
