Kathryn Merry

"Kathryn is a pleasure in rehearsal, super-talented, hilarious, beautiful, has a great facility with language, connects emotionally, is believable and theatrical at the same time, is a total joy to work with, and a wonder on the stage."

- Jesse Berger, Artistic Director, Red Bull Theater Company
