I had the good fortune of collaborating with Jessica in God of Carnage. As a director, she allows the actor to explore to any length without judgment or editing. Through careful exegesis of the script she has a keen insight of interpretation and an ardent awareness of human behavior.

Jessica’s vision, which included explosions of color in the play’s moments of violence, reflected both the destructive nature lurking inside and the underlying reference to childhood. These technically elaborate moments required an immense amount of collaboration between all departments, Jessica’s direction and clarity in her vision was essential in maintaining a cohesive final image. It was a difficult undertaking but Jessica inspired the team to push the boundaries in order to accomplish a unique and powerful production.
