“ As a director, Kristy possesses a fierce imagination and originality. She is a passionate artist who is deeply interested in the social and political relationship between theatre and society. Coming from a strong performance background herself, Kirsty is also very much an “actor’s director,” eliciting strong, committed performances from an incredibly diverse group of actors.”

         Andrew Goldberg, Broadway Director and Owner of The Shakespeare Gym

“Kristy has an unstoppable self-starting energy and passion, creating her own theater company and helping to generate, encourage, and develop an impressive stream of new and exciting work for the American Theater.  Her infectious work ethic and her loyal community of friends and artists attest, the positive effect she has already had on our community and will continue to have.  She is definitely a serious player.”  

         Jay O’ Sanders, Obie & Drama Desk Award Winning Actor

“ I’m always especially impressed at the high level of talent she continues to work with: many of these actors are unfamiliar to me, and she can accurately describe their skill level, qualities, and how they are to work with.  Sometimes I call her for casting suggestions: which I have never done with any other director.  I really trust her taste.

         Judy Bowman, Owner of Judy Bowman Casting

“I've been a working theater actor in New York and Europe for twenty years and I've worked with many directors. I think that by now I can say I can recognize true talent. Kristy is the genuine article.”

         Liza Colon Zayas, original Labyrinth Theater Company member and Lucile Lortel nominee

“From the many projects of hers that I have seen she always explores themes and issues that are compelling, universal, and masterfully teeter on the absurd and controversial. They are very specific and imaginative, wrought with powerful images and deep understanding. Always organized and looking ahead, I find Kristy to be calm and mature, withstanding the normal pressures of a fast-paced rehearsal process. I have seen her communicate with a directness that cuts through to the heart of the point. She has a great open-mindedness with taking information in, analyzing it thoroughly, and assessing the next move.” 

          Tracy Bersley,  Director and Lucille Lortel nominated Choreographer

“There’s something invigorating and inspiring about her approach to theater - and Kristy seems to have no end to her abilities to inspire. So I was inclined to say my congratulations instead of my traditional skip out unnoticed after the curtain routine and meet the director of the play. And she was cool. I liked her right from the get.” 

           Mando Alvarado, playwright and actor

 “I can enthusiastically say that few students could rival Kristy in terms of the impact she has made on our departmental community.”
