Jeunée Simon (AEA)

 

 

 

 

"In each of her roles, Simon wounds and is wounded with equal mastery. She hisses in silliness, unmasks in shame, apes in playfulness, gnaws on her own skirt in thwarted lust, shrugs off in insouciance, tenses in jealousy, as a predator sniffing out prey and readying to lunge. She surrenders her every tool as an actor to the thrall of the present impulse. Each moment for her is a moment of becoming."

-Lily Janiak, San Francisco Chronicle
