PREPARING


"...the young actress rose well to the occasion.

It is a difficult role because of the many transitions undergone by the character.

Miss Williams displayed a fine sense of this

highly fluid structure and the result was

a most captivating hour."


Bob Allen, Vancouver Province


NIJINSKY


"Barbara Williams, as Romola, supplements the Nijinsky part - beautifully, mixing concern and understanding with simplicity and subservience..."


Max Wyman, The Vancouver Sun


"Nijinsky and his wife, Romola perform splendidly; sliding easily from character to character and changing emphasis or mood with the experience of seasoned performers."


Joseph Erdely CBC radio
