I am currently performing in the Masquers Playhouse production of Farragut North by Beau Willimon, directed by James Nelson. I play Ida Horowicz, a New York Times reporter. Reviewer Sam Hurwitt calls the production, “gripping” and “tautly directed.” He says, “Jayme Catalano has a marvelously playful cat-and-mouse flirtatiousness as a New York Times reporter who’ll stop at nothing to get a hot scoop.” Read the complete review HERE. San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle (SFBATCC) member Gary Gonser says, “Catalano is a very flexible actress that handles her character with an iron will to ‘make the grade’ on her stories. She is believable and intimidating enough to force the other campaign people to make decisions that will hurt them. In looking for ‘the truth’ we see that her character is just as much after power as anyone else.” Read the full review HERE. The show runs through June 27.
