Jackie was just brilliant. Travelled from the UK to see If/Then. Jackie Burns is amazing...you WILL NOT be disappointed.
Jackie is one of the most incredible performers I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. I watched her perform three times this week!
The show...is really carried by Burns' belting pipes and offhanded prickly charm. Both of these gifts add nuance to the score. (Chicago Tribune Review)
Jackie Burns is the best Elphaba ever...I saw her four times in a month.
