Reviews

Y: THE LAST MAN
“It’s a testament to Paris Jefferson’s magnetic performance.” (Vulture/ New York)

“Paris Jefferson has been a riveting presence and it is a disgrace to see her go. Marla is a reminder of how trauma can actually destroy an individual.”  (CNN Radio)

“This information ultimately takes us on a journey in the Pentagon which I just thought was incredible, which in no small way was down to Paris Jefferson’s portrayal of effectively a crumbling and disintegrating former First Lady…I was transfixed by it…I thought Paris Jefferson was phenomenal.” (TV Podcasts Industries)


THE CONSTANT WIFE
“Star quality was wholly justified, on the other hand, in the casting of Paris Jefferson, her performance a comic masterclass in timing and blithe indifference”.
- Declan Burke (The Times)

“Jefferson’s performance as Constance is something to marvel at”.
- Perry Tannenbaum (TheatreMania.com)

“Constant Middelton is played with ravishing aplomb by Paris Jefferson”.
- Bruce Arnold (The Irish Independent)


ANNA KARENINA
“Paris Jefferson is mesmeric as Anna Karenina”.
- Karen Fricker (The Guardian)
**** 4 stars

“This production is every bit as passionate and memorable as Tolstoy’s doomed heroine”.
- Doragh Reddin (Metro)
**** 4 stars


JANIS JOPLIN: BALL & CHAIN
“Paris Jefferson’s performance is compelling as Janis Joplin”.
- Bruce Dessau (Time Out: London)


A WILL OF THEIR OWN
“By contrast, in a supporting role, Ms Jefferson is subtly more effective as Amanda’s conventional, mistreated daughter”.
- William McDonald (New York Times)


FRANKIE & JOHNNY
“It’s a production that demands to be seen - rarely will you get so close to such raw emotion”.
- Eric Roberts (The Press)
**** 4 stars

“Paris Jefferson is outstanding”.
- Steve Pratt (Northern Echo)


THE GREEKS
“Stand out performances include Paris Jefferson’s loving and strong Iphigenia”.
- Sydney Swire (LA Larchmont Chronicle)


CROWN PROSECUTOR
“The Crown Prosecutor may just make a star of the magnificent monikered Paris Jefferson”.
- Sunday Express
