Such an emotional, moving journey through the generations. I was invested in the story from the opening scene and believe it is of the class that belongs in the “West End” of London Theatre. Congratulations Jan!!! It was a privilege to be taken on your journey.” Gail deGroot
“Jan’s performance was captivating as she transformed smoothly from character to character, telling the hypnotising and dramatic story of her family. I was drawn into the swirling events of the story and thoroughly enjoyed the ride." El McDonald
“Thank you for a wonderful show. My partner and I were totally captivated. You are such a talented artist, on so many levels." Donna Lee
“What a memory!
What a performance!
Well done. Most enjoyable and enlightening.” Janet Croch
The dynamic, the passion and the presence that Jan held up on that stage was truly inspiring.
The characters, although played by a single actor, all had very distinct personalities and situations. This was so wonderfully executed by Jan that there was never even a slight moment of confusion, or a blur between the character roles." Matt Dean, Principal
Very well put together. Along similar lines to the production of EVITA at the Opera
House. We just saw EVITA at Sydney Opera House and we enjoyed this show more than
we enjoyed EVITA! Superb management of costume changes. Amazing shift from one character to another.’ Rob de Groot:
“An amazing tribute by an incredibly talented woman. The props, audio visuals and staging combined to provide an emotional journey through a family history! I” Carolyn Hoogervorst
“Jan Lindrum’s one-woman show is a journey through five generations. Her ability to seamlessly shift between characters kept the audience transfixed throughout. Jan captures both the lightness and the tragedy of each character. The third female to present herself, Harriet Atkins was especially loved by the audience and welcomed with laughter, throughout. It was also clear that Jan was unafraid to let the audience in on moments of absolute raw emotion that left the theatre in complete stillness well after the lights came up." Samantha Yandell
