Directors Amy Pan and Danelle Cummings at ReNew York said:
“We’re so grateful to have Christine! We’re impressed by how she embodies Tiffany–the most complicated character with the quickest thoughts and the widest range of emotions–with such ease! And I’ve never seen an actor acquaint themselves so well with their character. It’s incredible watching her at work, and we can’t wait for you to watch her too!”
