2019Stanford's Minchin has the right sort of stern and authoritative voice for the character. The villainy is impressive.
Chris Omaweng

2019Portrays the evil, cruel character with flair and ease, from one level to the next. Performed to an outstanding standard.

2017The evening, with the action hurtling up and down the nave, grips from start to finish :intelligent, well-acted, sensitive.
Dominic Cavendish

2017The versatility of each member of the cast is impeccable.The strength of the ensemble as a whole captivates.
Emily Loi

2017All the women in this production are outstanding. Jill Stanford as Richard's mother radiates power.
Julia Pascal

2013Jill Stanford is very good as Bernard's Nana, who is as clever as any servant in the commedia dell'arte tradition.
Carolin Kopplin

2013Caught in the middle of the ensuing chaos is their housekeeper, Nana, dryly played by Jill Stanford.
Sally Stott

2013the evening’s biggest delight is Jill Stanford as the housekeeper. Her every utterance is laced with sarcasm
Stephen Bates

2013Jill Stanford's irrepressible portrayal of Nana is reminiscent of Despina, in Mozart's Cose fan Tutte.
Linda Sutton

2012The painted ladies, Jill Stanford and Clare Wallis. Awful but alluring.
Chris Bearne
remotegoat.com
2012Stanford is terrifyingly believable and her performance is without doubt one of the most disturbing I have witnessed all year.
James Buxton

2012Jill Stanford as Gracie oozes disturbed madness.
