Praise for Anna:

"Anna Letts Lakin does a good job of demonstrating Jackie's pendulum-wide emotional swings, and while her character felt unnecessary to the fuller narrative, Lakin makes the part into a needed break from the devastating impact of Dot's disease as it unfolds."

"Anna Lakin is simply a powerful seductress. Gotta have one of those."

     -Review of Snapshot and Blank at Maggie's Farm by Janet Preus from How Was The Show?, Apr 2017

"... a cast of true believers in making magic the old-fashioned way: solid acting, with careful attention to text, tight pacing, and a sense of joy and camaraderie. "

 "Sulia Altenberg and Anna Lakin give lyrical performances, like poetry itself manifested on stage."
