   MEDEA - REVIEWS
*Liverpool Everyman
Medea, brilliantly played by Nina Kristofferson, bursts onto the stage instantly exuding the shrewd intelligence of her character, with an energy that does not falter throughout. 

ANY TABLOID CRIME REPORTER WOULD LICK THEIR LIPS! Read More...

Nina Kristofferson’s performance is superb, capturing the manic episode into which Medea spirals with a wicked glint in her eye and knowing curve of her lip Read More...

*Liverpool Everyman
we see an extremely strong Medea in Nina Kristofferson. She is black, beautiful, and heroic. Nina is hardly ever off stage and she gives a mesmerizing performance. Her hurt is tangible, her anger and gall physical. She moves with grace, and her facial contortions tell a tale of guile and scheming
Paulin’s passionate script is enthralling and spellbinding, especially when articulated by Kristofferson, an actress of true talent
this is a strong production and well worth seeing. I would award it a well-deserved gold any day Read More...

*Richmond Georgian Theatre
ANCIENT Greece’s most violent woman dominates the Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond.
All this week, Euripides Medea has been electrifying audiences...
What is unique about this tragedy is the power and dominance of the protagonist, Medea...
An exquisite performance by the Northern Broadside cast makes this production hypnotising...
Nina Kristofferson (right) who plays, or should I say, engulfs the part of Medea, delivers an intensity that many professional actors never come close to.
She is captivating and fully intimidating , she owns, and is possessed by, the script and the stage. A superb performance... role Read More...

Glasgow Citizens Theatre
In the title role, Nina Kristofferson is a striking presence, graceful yet hellish in her wrath, the very soul of the gifted barbarian, deceived by her husband and lashing out with thrilling heat and chilling calculation at a society that would suppress an immigrant woman. Read More...

Glasgow Citizens Theatre
Nina Kristofferson as Medea puts in a performance of such powerful vitriol that any would-be philanderer in the audience will be sleeping with one eye open for the foreseeable future. Read More...

*Oxford Playhouse
In its favour, and pretty much its only favour, actor/director Barrie Rutter has cast a striking, sure-footed young black actress, Nina Kristofferson, as the displaced enchantress whose loving devotions have curdled into vengeful hate. In an alluring greeny-blue silky dress, hair cascading down her back, Kristofferson convinces as a wounded tigress - caged by sexist circumstance in Corinth - who suddenly scents victory and the means to have horrific sport with those who have goaded her...
Kristofferson has the makings of magnificence: she holds the stage with clenched authority...
the dividend yielded by her smouldering sense of injustice is one of high watchability... Read More...

The Stage
the central performances are crisp and coruscating. Nina Kristofferson’s Medea is a creature of fire and ice, one minute lacerating the ears of the Corinthians with vengeful invective, the next all kittenish as she wheedles and beseeches them. Read More...

Liverpool Everyman
In the title role, Nina Kristofferson starts with an intensity that seems must inevitably flag; amazingly, it - and she - doesn’t. On stage for the whole play, uninterrupted even by an interval, she takes us on an intense dramatic journey without ever releasing her grip. Being the only ’'southerner’' in the cast chimes well Read More...

Oxford Playhouse
Nina Kristofferson turns in a powerful performance in the title role, appearing like a bewildered and betrayed... Read More...

Liverpool Everyman
two superb actors steal the show, in the lead role of Medea is played superbly by Nina Kristofferson whose very presence on stage was enough for the audience to realise that this is an actor of worthy note and whose acting ability will surely take her ever onwards. Read More...

Liverpool Everyman
Kristofferson is often frighteningly convincing in her malevolence scheming,during which she swings from shouting to quiet vulnerability. Read More...

Oxford Playhouse
Nina Kristofferson does a fine job as Medea using her body and full range of emotions to express the rage felt by the character. She obviously understands the genre that is Greek Tragedy and works hard to portray her emotions through her movement and clear words... Read More...
