Brittany in Good Television by Rod McLachlan, Zeitgeist Stage Company

 

"Jenny Reagan delivers a vivid performance as his divorced, overburdened sister Brittany, who is caring for their dying mother and her own children while desperately trying to steer Clemmy into rehab by landing him a slot on the reality show. Reagan manages to avoid a one-note characterization even though Brittany spends much of the play in tears or at least in a state of high agitation."

-The Boston Globe

 

"The pain of his sister, Brittany, is compellingly articulated- her martyrdom is accented by flickers of affecting desperation. Thus Jenny Reagan's scenes with Power are the emotional heart of this production."

-The Arts Fuse

"There are some very good performances in this show, particularly Jenny Reagan as Brittany, the sister who supports/enables Clemmy while desperately clutching to her own sanity;"

-Events Insider

 

"She is masterful in creating a character with a surprisingly robust set of layers. She is anything but the "poor white trash" that she may appear to be on the surface. The character undergoes mind-bending changes during the course of the two acts of this play, and Ms. Reagan steers her Brittany through a minefield of emotional challenges that turn an apparently helpless victim into a vibrant conquering heroine."

Zaida in Twins by Julian Olf, The Boston Actors Theater

"Reagan (who has been a member of BAT since their inception 10 years ago) is not your mamma’s ingénue. You know the role is supposed to be: Cute and witty, always pushing the boundaries of her sex up until the inevitable marriage at the end of the play where she submits to her femininity. Contradictions in character, which we usually write off as an inevitability of a script that is focused on a tightly constructed plot rather that realistic characters, are inevitable. But Reagan plays these as compelling human intricacies. Strange and inconsistent, Reagan doesn’t make easy choices or play to the laugh lines."

Gabrielle in Expecting by Noah Tobin, The Boston Actors Theater

"Reagan does a lovely job with Gabrielle, making her both approachable and vulnerable."

-The New England theatre Greek

Kathleen in And Neither Have I Wings to Fly by Ann Noble, Bad Habit Productions

"The cast are just as precise and correct. In their physical appearance, demeanor, and energy, each of the actors embodies and projects their characters. Jenny Reagan offers layers of barely suppressed yearning and impatience;"

Sydney in The Altruists by Nicky Silver, The Boston Actors Theater

"Jenny Reagan nearly steals the show as Sydney, the neurotic soap opera actress with a big bank account and bad taste in men. Her comic timing is impeccable, making Sydney's disconnect from most of the world not only plausible, but normal."

-The Boston Metro

Morgan in Where Moments Hung Before by Joey C. Pelletier, The Boston Actors Theater

 

"Morgan, in particular, is calm and gracious, even in the face of platitudes offered by relatives and acquaintances at the funeral; it’s only later, much later that night, after a few drinks and a spat with younger sister Fiona (Julia Specht) that Morgan’s fury, resentment, and raw hurt erupt, not with screaming accusations but with a tipsily frank, yet level-headed, outpouring that electrifies the stage and leaves the house all but breathless."

-EDGE Boston

Ata in Criminal Hearts by Jane Martin, The Boston Actors Theater

"Director Danielle Leeber has a sure hand with the mechanics of comedy, and she's particularly well served by Jenny Reagan, who is winningly befuddled as Ata. The character is supposed to be a former beauty pageant contestant who volunteers at a social-welfare organization, and Reagan's comic timing is swift and sure."
