Uncle Vanya - The New American Theatre, LA

"Eve Danzeisen plays Sónya, Professor Serebryakov’s grown daughter from his first marriage and Vanya’s niece.

The Body Politic - 59E59 Theaters, NYC

Eve Danzeisen’s Trish is an ingénue with backbone, a soldier on the front. To the actress’s credit, both Trish’s attraction to Spencer, and later an ethical quandary, appear to be not only verbally but visibly against her better judgment. The tightly wound character is played with effective restraint.  When Trish let’s go, the humor of Danzeisen’s physical acting shines.” read the review »
