Recent acting experience (use the format on the Before Applying page):
"...(Phyllis) Gordon...tackles (Agatha) Christie’s luxurious dialogue with seemingly improvised control as she weaves her way through...with marvelously cavalier brio. She’s irrepressible."
-Paul Kolas, Worcester Telegram
"...Gerda Cristow, played by Phyllis Gordon, provide(s) the juice for the play...(This) character is so dynamic, when she (is) not on the stage, the story lags."
-Katie Hall, Cortland Standard
"Phyllis Gordon...She's brilliant. She portrays Rose (Kennedy)...and she captures her essence without overdoing it. She just nails it."
-Jordan Rich, The Jordan Rich Show (WBZ Radio)
"(Phyllis Gordon is) natural and quirky...
(She gives) a believable, understated performance..."

Okay, so I'm just figuring out this is kinda like a facebook page. So, I just read your message. Good to hear from you Phyllis! I just moved back to Mass after 20 years in Seattle. Now, I am trying to get to know the Boston scene. It has been easy, especially with the fact that there really aren't any agents (which is weird). But, I am very happen to be home. I hope to see you, and maybe we will work together some day!
Thanks so much for the feedback Phyllis, really looking forward to memorializing Bobby. I can't stand when actors mimic the "Kennedy speak". I sent an MP3 off to Mike, presenting the RFK speech in Indianapolis, informing a campaign rally of MLK's assassination. I'll send it off to you. Paul
