Selected Reviews

Blood Brothers, West End, London and Touring

Watch out for a fine performance as the nervy and obsessive Mrs Lyons played by Joanne Zorian, an actress we must surely hear more of.

- The Daily Telegraph, London

Joanne Zorian approaches the performance of a Judith Anderson, except the latter couldn’t sing. Stunning!

- The Niagra Review (Canada)

Joanne Zorian turns in a powerful performance as Mrs Lyons.

- Aberdeen, Scotland

Joanne Zorian makes her motives superbly understandable.

- The Liverpool Echo

The Condom Kid and the Lady, Wimbledon, London

Miss Zorian plays a much meaner personality, and has the job of trying to make us care about her. A task for which she deserves all praise.

- The Stage

The Ladies Who Lunch, London and the Edinburgh Fringe

Joanne Zorian’s deft revue of 13 women reaching a certain age . . . admire the skill of both performer and production.

- Time Out, London

Passionate singing and impressive acting…amusing and moving.

- The Stage, London

Zorian’s impressively chameleon-like performances conjure an array of sharply defined cameos imbued with potent emotional force.

- The Scotsman, Edinburgh

The energy and pace of this polished piece of theatre is gripping. Absolutely not to be missed.

- Three Weeks, Scotland
