"I was charmed by [Janine] Burgener's vibrant little bird, Woodstock's dance."
CLOSE

"The cast flourishes with born comedians."
CLOSE

CLOSE
"...42nd Street Moon has brought together the perfect creative team and cast to convey the varying emotions of energy, passion and anger throughout the show."
CLOSE
"...all of the characters are interestingly complex and wonderfully executed by all concerned..."
CLOSE
"...all gave 4-D performances as they were meant to be seen."
CLOSE
"...the Willows ensemble are all standouts - no weak link in the bunch...Burgener masters her character's broken English with great comic timing..."
"Jordan DeLong and Janine Burgener make a riotous comic/straight man team as human couple Brian and Christmas Eve."
"Janine Burgener, whose Christmas Eve threatens to be cliché in early scenes, winds up stealing the heart of the show with 'The More You Ruv Someone.'"
"...the cast assembled by director Jon Marshall squeezes every moment of comedy and pathos out of the hilarious script."
CLOSE
"...what makes it all work so well is the hugely talented cast, gifted with a remarkable sense of comedic timing and know-how, and great singing pipes."
"The contrast between the professional team of Blisset and Paige and the trio so playfully portrayed by Payne, Burgener and Angell makes for an entertaining and satisfying evening."
CLOSE
"Performances by...Janine Burgener (nice physical comedy and adept silliness as Dromio of Ephesus)...lead a uniformally fine cast."
CLOSE
"Most of the actors are adept at both the humor and the drama...Burgener is a charming Lala, shallow and society-driven, hunting openly for the right man to secure her future. Her weeping is hysterical, and her turn in a plantation ballgown absolutely wonderful."
"...Janine Burgener, an actress of elfish beauty, slim figure and expressive countenance..."
Paul Myrvold, Out and About Magazine, 12/27/2007
CLOSE
"John Rutski (Tobias Gilmore) and Janine Burgener (Persis Devore)...pull off the injured husband and the unassuming but tolerant interior designer quite well."
CLOSE
"Janine Burgener (double cast as Louise Lerman and Eve)...deliver[s] equally top drawer and very funny characterizations."
CLOSE
""Titus Andronicus's" most poignant scene is between Titus's brother, Marcus (solidly acted by James Scoggins), and his brutalized daughter, Lavinia (sensitively realized by Janine Burgener), and is beautifully managed by both actors."
"But Burgener's performance, which could have been benign, is infused with tragedy. Initially she appears the good daughter, the ingenue. But after her rape, the amputation of her hands and removal of her tongue, she becomes a mute testament to despair."
CLOSE
"Each of the six cast members is stunningly adept in her or his role."
"Janine Burgener (Meredith) is a mess and grand at it."
CLOSE
"Susy is a great character, and Burgener does an excellent job of portraying her transformation from cripple to bad-ass."
CLOSE
"And though she be but little, she is fierce."
