Kristin and enthusiastic library staff in Medford, OR

“Our audience thoroughly enjoyed their experience of Kristin Hammargren’s theatrical talents. I would recommend this performer to any playhouse. This was a professional quality theatrical presentation. I think this production would draw an audience in a large city like Chicago.”


“We received very good feedback from the audience, the local newspaper, and the staff.  We learned so much about Jane Austen and the era in which she lived.  This makes her and her characters so much more real and interesting.  In the talkback portion of the show, Kristin’s knowledge of Austen really came out.  We as a staff are still commenting on the performance.”


“We were thrilled because the show brought literature to life, which is rare and powerful in the library. “


“I am so very pleased with this performance! We had an excellent turnout and the audience just loved it! The show was interesting and funny and the talkback was also great. An audience member commented to me that they thought the talkback was very thoughtful and insightful . They were also impressed with the amount of research Kristin had done in writing and performing the show.”


Discovering Austen was one of the best programs we’ve hosted at the library! Kristin was very professional and easy to work with! The show was a lot of fun and much of the audience stopped me on the way out to tell me how much they enjoyed it.”
