“.. as with many gifted artists, Liza Balkan uses the theatre to question,  ponder, probe and discover.” – Lynn Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter

“No performer this year showed more prismatic personalities than Balkan, who began the year with a reprise of the partisan fighter working with her cousin in Nazi-filled woods in Still the Night. As adept in musical theatre as in straight drama, she took on the streetwise Kid in The Roar Of The Greasepaint, The Smell Of The Crowd, riveted audiences in the Fringe hit The Juniper Tree and played a subtly devious home-care nurse in We Are At War.”Jon Kaplan, Best Of list, NOW Magazine
