Katie McClellan Picture



ROCKET TO THE MOON (OFF-BWAY)

"In this revival, a beautifully nuanced performance by Katie McClellan shifts the center of gravity...  That's what's striking here."

- The New York Times


"McClellan is perfectly cast as a young woman so full of life and hope that she makes most of the downtrodden men around her feel alive and hopeful, too."

- The New Yorker


"McClellan nicely captures Cleo's vulnerability and longing [...] This solid revival is worth seeing."

- Huffington Post


"As Cleo Singer, ranging from shrill to engaging, Katie McClellan, with her forceful performance and character's plot twists, becomes the central character by the end.  With both very well played contrived haughtiness and tenderness, she captures the essence of a young striver seeking to claw out of poverty on her own terms."

- Theaterscene.net


"As Cleo, McClellan cuts an intriguing figure, full of life and very perky, conveying an independent spirit and wanting something more in her future."

- William Wolf, Wolf Entertainment Guide


"McClellan convincingly portrays the ingenue, making up for a troubled home life with fantastical lies about her family's wealth and priviledge [...] Terrifying and real."

- Theatermania
