Fantastic reviews for Jordan McCurrach in 'East of Berlin'
Jordan McCurrach played the lead in East of Berlin, by Hannah Moscovitch at the Southwark Playhouse, directed by Blythe Stewart.
The press on Jordan:
- “much of the intensity emanates from the very obvious and gifted talents of McCurrach. Vulnerable, commanding and anguished in what is almost a one-man play, McCurrach delivers lengthy monologues, scene to scene shifts with seamless ease and a natural acting ability. It is almost worth the four stars just for McCurrach’s acting ability alone.” – Theodora Munroe, The Upcoming
- “Jordan McCurrach…is a treat to watch. Vulnerable, bewildered, desperate but always with a core of confidence and competence…he is top class.” – Karl O’Doherty, The Reviews Hub
- “Jordan McCurrach is excellent as Rudi, playing him with an angry energy that bubbles beneath the surface.” – Daisy Bowie-Sell, Timeout
- “Jordan McCurrach…is particularly masterful, especially in his asides to the audience. He handles the dark humour handed to him by Moscovitch with a blunt grace and dexterity perfectly suited to his character. McCurrach both endears and repels us from Rudi in equal measure, without ever making him caricature or overtly neurotic…a quiet yet barnstorming performance of controlled power, revelling in the unsettling comi-tragic awkwardness of the narrative and Rudi himself.” – 5 STARS – J Waygood, Grumpy Gay Critic
- “Storytelling is beautifully weighted in Jordan McCurrach’s performance and he delivers with delicacy in feeling, a powerful grounding and effortless connection with the audience inviting us into the very core of the story – his conflicting heart. He depicts the rivalling love and hate for his father with such ease” – Camilla Gurtler, A Younger Theatre
- “Moscovitch’s rich characterisation is delievered by McCurrach…with rare sublety and finesse…with a touch of the Robert Redfords about him [Jordan] carries all the charm and charisma necessary” – Carole Woddis, London Grip
