Reviews from Talkin’ Broadway (2019):

IPHIGENIA AND OTHER DAUGHTERS – “Delta Rae Giordano is a fearsome presence as Clytemnestra, ruling imperiously over her domain, and swallowing any hint of fear…”

A BRIGHT ROOM CALLED DAY – “Delta Rae Giordano's portrayal of Annabella conveys the courage required to hold on to besieged ideals.”

A LIFE OF DAYS – “Two fine actors play Vira. Cate Jackson is Vira as a young woman, seen in flashbacks with Nikon, while Delta Rae Giordano is middle-aged Vira, confronted with the reality that she has lived her life based on a falsehood—and yet, for her, that life is the only possible truth. Both actors are inspiring in the complete conviction with which they flesh out Vira as a full person with a rich inner life in spite of her isolation. Though they never interact, there is a consistency in their performances that makes us believe they are one person.”
