actor resumé

Ben Brantley (New York Times) on STOCKHOLM

'A precision-tooled performance by Emily Gardner Hall... Ms. Hall gives natural life to Kali's extreme, lacerating ambivalence. This young performer is remarkably smooth in conveying spikiness... [they] make us believe that from the moment they met, everything Todd and Kali have done has been charged with dangerous contradiction.'
