Love, Loss and What I Wore

"(Still) under the deft direction of Jenny Sullivan, the cast sets an easygoing tone in keeping with the minimal staging."  

-Charlotte Stoudt, Los Angeles Times


You Can’t Take It With You

"…with her attention to small but telling details, director Jenny Sullivan… finds the show’s heart. This viewer, for one, had a hard time seeing the last 20 minutes. Too many tears clouded my eyes."

-Daryl H. Miller, Los Angeles Times


Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

"Jenny Sullivan brings us a vibrant and thought-provoking revisit to (the) masterpiece…” 

-Les Spindle, Backstage West


“Director Jenny Sullivan brings remarkable lucidity to the play's alcoholic haze."

-LA Times


Old Wicked Songs

"…Old Wicked Songs… is really about the importance of reconnecting to our emotionally severed lives as the only way to move past trauma and grief. And with more than enough trauma and grief to go around these days, Jenny Sullivan's eloquent staging… proves a particularly timely revival.”

(performed 6 months after 9/11)

The Dresser

“American (director) Jenny Sullivan smoothly guides us through the theatrical underworld with its monstrous egos and self-sacrificing martyrs.”

-Kevin Prokosh, Winnipeg Free Press


“Lovely, thoughtful little touches adorn the production, starting with director Jenny Sullivan’s clever recreation of the 1940s experience. Old music plays over a crackly speaker as spectators take their seats, and then there’s the intermittent wail of an air raid siren, followed by the announcement to turn off cell phones done in ‘40s vernacular: ‘Attention British subjects. Please disengage your telephone devices.’ Fantastic atmosphere.”

-Janice Sawka, Uptown


The Clean House

Jenny Sullivan again proves herself to be among the most astute directors anywhere, guiding a first rate cast in a rhapsody of merriment and sorrow, or as she says, ‘a fugue of love.’”

-Alex Henteloff, CASA Santa Barbara


Nazi Hunter: Simon Wisenthal

“Dungan and director Jenny Sullivan structure this accessible history lesson with contrasting narratives: the sweep of Wiesenthal’s life as a victim and then a hunter of Nazis; and his last day running Vienna’s Jewish Documentation Center, where he struggles to bring one more fugitive war criminal a step closer to justice.”

-Charlotte Stoudt, Los Angeles Times



Sullivan instills veracity in every character’s agenda, creating a kaleidoscope of competing thought and action that eventually and inevitably leads to tragedy.”

-Julio Martinez, Variety



“Using the First Folio edition of the text, with interstitial cuts, director Jenny Sullivan lets her star sculpt his interpretation from inside the lines, and barring the odd too-stentorian attack, Joseph Fuqua doesn’t disappoint.”

-David C. Nichols, Los Angles Times


“Hamlet has been performed many times since Shakespeare wrote his famous tragedy in 1600. Now the Rubicon Theatre joins the ranks of companies that have produced the world’s most famous play with a stellar production directed by Jenny Sullivan and with Joseph Fuqua as Hamlet.”

-Bojana Hill, The Independent


One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

“By casting a black McMurphy (Chris Butler), director Jenny Sullivan elegantly and decisively detaches the role from Jack Nicholson’s Oscar-winning portrayal while smartly underscoring the social outsider status of the Kesey-Wasserman protagonist. This McMurphy plays his race cards in hilariously un-PC ways, mocking the black ward orderlies and taunting Nurse Ratched (Gigi Bermingham) with Steppenfetchit-style clowning.”

-Philip Brandes, Los Angeles Times



“If you want to understand men, ask a woman. Or better yet, catch this sharp and sometimes stinging production. That way you’ll get the insights of two brilliant female theatre artists: playwright Yasmina Reza and director Jenny Sullivan. Reza supplies the amusing dialogue and psychological insights regarding how those of us with Y chromosomes relate to one another. Sullivan makes sure her superb three-man cast gets below the play’s surface sheen to reveal the neediness and hurt behind the characters’ attempts to manipulate one another into submission.”

-Tom Jacobs, Backstage West


J for J

Jenny-perhaps best known for directing the premiere of Jane Anderson’s ‘The Baby Dance’-returns to acting with a performance that vibrates with vulnerability and need…  J for J emerges as a quiet little miracle of a show and a story about families everywhere."

-Daryl H. Miller, Los Angeles Times
