Guys & Dolls: Miss Adelaide

Dir. Dan Kelley | Choreo. Chrissy Ardito | Stage Door Theatre, FL

Jill Taylor Anthony provides the very best moments in the role of Miss Adelaide, the doll who has been waiting 14 years for her guy, Nathan Detroit (Justin Lore), to finally tie the knot.  Her timing is terrific; her voice just right for the songs; her demeanor winsome – altogether a winning combination.

Mame: Agnes Gooch

Dir. Dan Kelley | Choreo. Chrissy Ardito | Stage Door Theatre, FL

…solid, stolid nanny Agnes Gooch (Jill Taylor Anthony).  Frumpy Gooch, moving from naivety through experience, via Mame's encouragement and makeover, is hilarious.

- Talkin' Broadway

Ms. Taylor Anthony's Truvy is caring, quick with a word of advice and frequently the mother hen of the group. She makes the character her own and brings a Delta Burke-like southern charm to the role.

Rumors: Chris

*2012 Carbonell Award for Best Ensemble of a Play or Musical 

… a superb, breathless production of this sophisticated, balls-to-the-wall comedy. ... a cast with the ability to keep up with Simon’s witty, ratatat repartee is absolutely crucial to the play’s success, and … there’s not a rotten egg in the bunch.  … everybody impresses at one point or another; the end result feels both exhaustively rehearsed and utterly spontaneous.  ... I was particularly taken with Jill Taylor Anthony, a natural comedian as the dotty, giggly, frequently soused Chris….

A Comedy of Tenors: Maria

Dir. Jimmy Smagula | Millbrook Playhouse, PA

The three women in the show, though they play the stock characters of ingenue, wife, and mistress, bring skilled comic timing to their roles.
