"Bridget brings energy and insight to any project, large or small. I found her a delightful, committed collaborator, with a particular sensitivity to new work. She understands the language of acting, and creates a professional rehearsal room, a welcome place for input and ideas from every artist."
- Allyson Currin, Washington DC
"Bridget is one of the most brilliant people I know, and she understands theater in a profound way I just haven't witnessed in anyone else. I truly felt like she understood what I was trying to write, and that her suggestions and comments helped me craft the work in a way I never could have without her. I have recommended multiple friends work with Bridget and will continue to do so."
-A.C. MCGrath, Richmond, VA
"Bridget is the most compassionate and motivational coach with whom I have ever worked. She is an expert in dramatic structure and characterization. I feel respected as a playwright working with Bridget because she encourages me to set the agenda for each session. She keeps me moving always forward, never backwards, through constructive criticism. Bridget is kind, dedicated, and professional. I highly recommend her, whether you're just getting your sea legs or are feeling stuck mid-voyage in your dramatic writing. She will get you to shore."
-Kate Colwell, Washington, D.C.
"I first got to know Bridget as a writer of intriguing stories and crisp, witty dialogue. In a subsequent playwriting course, which Bridget facilitated, I came to appreciate her sense of dramatic rhythm and insights into character development. Her input as a consultant during the writing of my latest musical led me – among other things – to tighten dialogue, refine the arc of a main character and reconceive the opening in a way that gets the show off to an energetic start. I enthusiastically commend her insights to new playwrights looking for a creative sounding board."
-Lois Cecsarini, Virginia
"Bridget brought both reverence and risk to the development of my text. She asks excellent questions, listens well, and will help you to sharpen narrative structure and character depth. Having her direct the world premiere of my play was a gift!"
-Amy Horan, Washington DC
