WOW! The superb McNamara is heartbreakingly real in an arc that takes her from the edginess of an addict on the verge of morphine withdrawal to the wide/empty-eyed gaze signaling yet another fall into the morphine-induced trance of her own long day’s journey into darkness.
A standing ovation was definitely in order for the actress, Nan McNamara’s outstanding portrayal of Vivian. She kept us all engaged, tackling the demanding language with ease and intense emotion. She carried the play with superb strength and brought me to tears by the end of the play.
Nan McNamara’s spectacular performance . . . provides a completely engaging drama . . . bold interpretation . . . McNamara [is] securely in touch with [her] art and keenly aware of of the pathway to expressing it.
