BY MICHAEL FRAYN
DORSET THEATRE FESTIVAL
"This is the kind of GUFFAW-INDUCING play meant for midsummer, and it didn't disappoint. Funny, yes; but all too human. More importantly, though, Thompson humanizes the actors. In the midst of all the laughs, they are susceptible to all human frailties - which are often hidden backstage."
- Bennington Banner
"But more than anything, Janis demonstrates a true executive feel for the stage with her golden touch in bringing in directors. In DTF's current run of British playwright Michael Frayn's farce, "Noises Off," her choice of Jenn Thompson was another STROKE OF GENIUS"
"Filled the Dorset Theatre with laughter and a standing ovation as a PURELY ENTERTAINING...
Directed by Jenn Thompson, this play could be confusing due to all of its moving parts, but
THIS TOUR DE FORCE IS A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH."
- Manchester Journal
"AUDIENCE MEMBERS WERE LAUGHING UNCONTROLLABLY, SOME TO THE POINT OF TEARS, at Friday's opening “Noises Off,” Michael Frayn's 1982 classic British farce.
It was in the right hands."
- The Rutland Herald
"This is A PERFECT TRIPLE-A EXPERIENCE...Jenn Thompson who, in a couple of intense weeks, has rehearsed one of the most difficult plays in the English language to a fare-thee-well...
you MUST SEE this production!
