From Those Who Know Me
WILLIAM DOWNES (ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, CLASSICS ON THE ROCKS)
"Working with Anna is a director’s dream. She brings a passion, energy, excitement and integrity to her work that elevates a production. Her instincts and willingness to play and explore the text of the piece and the intentions of a characters gives any director more choices than you can imagine, and an audience a delightful, engaging character to watch on stage.
I have had the honor of not only directing Anna, but also sharing a stage with her. She is a stage general, who has the ability to lead a cast with not only her incredible talent, but also her infectious positive attitude. She is also one of the most open and giving actors, I have had the pleasure to work opposite of."
ELIZABETH RUELAS (CURRENT MANAGING DIRECTOR, HAMLET ISN'T DEAD; CO-FOUNDER AND FORMER ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, THE NEW RENAISSANCE THEATRE COMPANY)
"I have had the pleasure of directing Anna Lewein in two productions: a Shakespeare comedy and a Russian satire. She is the first actress that I've come across that can effortlessly blend vulnerability with a fierce determination. Anna also has the ability to take direction extremely well while never losing her beautiful individuality. I look forward to working with her again!"
LANCE RINGEL AND CHUCK MUCKLE (WRITERS/DIRECTORS/PRODUCERS, POSH PRODUCTIONS)
"Anna Lewein is a fearless performer who throws herself wholeheartedly into any role with keen intelligence and razor-sharp wit. She is a delight to work with, and her work is a delight for any audience to watch. And she's damn f---ing funny!"
