REMY ZAKEN

RAVES

"The small Ms. Zaken packs a big voice."

The New York Times

"Remy Zaken, who created the role of Thea in the original Broadway production of “Spring Awakening,” is exactly right as Anne. You have no trouble at all accepting her as a bright, eager adolescent full of half-understood longings..."

Wall Street Journal

"Remy Zaken, beguiling and luminous, gives a noble performance as Anne: extroverted and curious one moment, then, by Act II, self-questioning about her stirring sexuality and fearful of the dark shadows that loom."

Pittsburgh City Paper

"Because the play is told intimately through Anne’s perspective, it allows the audience to lose their consciousness to the horrid reality of the world outside the annex and into her own poignant balance of naivety and maturity, fear and hope. Remy Zaken luminously controls this dichotomy through Anne’s formative years spent in hiding. She starts off jovial, oblivious almost but finds herself dealing with a search for identity and sense of sympathy without ever losing her radiant core."

Pittsburgh Stage Online Magazine

"As the title character, Remy Zaken (“Spring Awakening” on Broadway) is perfect in her imperfections. The petite actress who looks the part also embodies a budding teen through and through — her adoration of her father at her mother’s expense, busting a ballet move during one of her nonstop rants, cruel and annoying one minute, caring and entertaining the next.  We know Ms. Zaken’s [Anne]: she is a sister, a daughter, a friend in our sphere. She makes knowing what’s to come is all the more devastating."

Pittsburgh Post Gazette

"Playing young Anne Frank is no easy task. But 26-year-old Remy Zaken handles Anne’s transition from outspoken, self-involved child to a more sensitive, thoughtful but still-lively 15-year-old with seamless plausibility."

Pittsburgh Tribune

"Remy Zaken as Anne Frank rips the soul. Her snarky, yet exuberant demeanor makes you [believe], for one moment, that everyone was good.  Zaken’s strength, wit, and fragility combined for a performance that truly touched the audience. Her broken sense of self, thirst for understanding and unconventional thought process pulled at the heart strings as she navigates life, love, hope, anger, and regret. Through the darkened door in which Frank lives, Zaken characterizes the journey with elegance and spunk ... The audience fell hard for Frank, and were truly saddened that they never knew her.  Surrounded by tears of men and women at the closing of the show, I realized the mastery that Zaken had achieved: a true audience envelopment."
