Recommendation by Alexander Dinelaris, Academy Award winning screenwriter of Birdman

“Every so often the stars align. In this case those stars are Nordlinger and Nazimova. Channeling the spirit and sensuality of an artist to whom attention must be paid, Romy Nordlinger give us a tiny window into the complicated life of a complicated and tenacious woman of the theater.”


Places is relevant for now. Nazimova was ahead of her time fighting the things that women are still fighting for today. We cannot be put in closets or be punished for our talent due to our sexual preferences. Romy Nordlinger shows us the life, energy and drive behind this woman who paved the way for so many others.

Romy Nordlinger is brilliant in the role of Alla Nazimova. She brings her character to life and captures the passion, the drama, and the humor of the spirited actress. Nordlinger's reimagining of Nazimova's personal and professional life is inspirational, a beautifully honest portrayal of a talented woman who was a true trailblazer for the LGBT community.

Mischievously sexy... Nordlinger conveys her tangled neuroses clearly without losing a basic charm. It almost feels like a response to (David) Lynch, in which sense it owes a lot to Romy Nordlinger as Becky.

Romy Nordlinger layers complicated emotions onto Ginger, and manages them with intricate aplomb:  A savage longing behind her eyes testifies to the woman's sensuous and predatory natures, giving you both sides of the argument until the scale can tilt one way or another.

Dozens of roles, thoughtful and compassionate and resonant.

A standout is one in which a corporate woman confesses to a friend about being raped by a male co-worker. Her emotions of shame and guilt are powerfully dramatized and performed. … Fearless. … Displays tremendously accomplished performing arts skills encompassing comedy, drama, singing, and dancing, all with emotional overtones.

Romy Nordlinger, Rachel Collins, and Jennifer Harder are excellent actors and physical performers, and make a bonded, flexible team.

“Romy Nordlinger is an actress of real ability and total commitment. I have seen her in two shows and an extended scene from one of my plays, and I was knocked out by her work on all three occasions. She brings soul, intelligence, and disarming honesty to every moment she’s asked to play. If you cast her, send me a postcard and I’ll come. Because she’s that good.”


"Hear me NYC. Do NOT miss Romy Nordlinger in Lancelot at The Gym On Judson. The lady knocks it outta the park. Sexy, menacing, seductive, egocentric, smooth, cruel and complex... her character Ginger joins a cast that each shines in a very well crafted play that should be bigger. I loved most of the players, but Ms Nordlinger has an IT factor that's hard to divert your eyes from... even when others on stage are naked."
