“…On the first performance after opening night – sans any understudy rehearsal – Ms. LaVardera got together with the rest of the cast to do a quick 90 minutes of what we call a “put in” rehearsal, before an 11:30am student matinee.

Then she went out there and tore it up!...To walk out, in front of a house full of people, and speak the speech, and act the moments, and be available to what other actors are trying to do to you while you’re actively trying to effect them…and to get through it this coolly, this Professionally recommends her highly.” - Actor and Playwright Brian Dykstra for The Folger Spotlight
