Absorbing, Ambitious, Intense, Masterful

See it if you want to know about one of the greatest 20th Century actresses played by her daughter. Uncanny & Moving, if it's playing SEE IT!!

Don't see it if you're not into 1 person shows. Or don't want to know theatre history. Or want to see HAMILTON.

BroadwayWorld
February 28th, 2017

“In the one-woman show 'Turning Page,' Angelica Page takes on perhaps the role of her career—that of her real-life mother, Geraldine Page...It's an interesting device learning about Angelica's atypical childhood through her mother's voice…As directed by Wilson Milam, Angelica's writing comes alive in a true tour-de-force performance—a valentine to a mother, a woman, and a seminal actress that we all lost too soon.”

"Gloriously replicating the legendary actress Geraldine Page’s mannerisms, speech patterns and facial expressions...her daughter Angelica Page vividly pays tribute to her. 'Turning Page' is an intense, affectionate and impressionistic 90-minute biographical solo show that Ms. Page wrote and performs...Director Wilson Milam’s vigorous staging yields many arresting images and displays of striking movement that visually complement Ms. Page’s magnificent performance."

Theater Pizzazz
February 25th, 2017

“It is amazing that her daughter can emulate her persona, the cadence of her very recognizable speech pattern, and take the emotional roller-coaster ride…There are moments when Geraldine becomes almost a caricature in the theatricality, and sometimes the pace of dialogue flows much too quickly. However, you’ll be swept away by Angelica Page entering the world of life as Geraldine Page in all its complexity."

For a previous production

“A beguiling one-woman show…This rough-hewn offering provided a memorable showcase for the marvelous eccentricities of an Actors Studio original...It was also an opportunity to become better acquainted with Angelica's own considerable gifts as a performer…For those who have been touched by Page's sorcery — and I personally don't know any great actor who hasn't been — Angelica's virtuosic conjuring of her mother's spirit is something to behold."

Living Out Loud - LA
March 9th, 2015
For a previous production

“It was difficult to find an entry point, and I found Angelica Page’s one-woman act a bit tedious for a show lasing two hours…I did enjoy snippits of this actress’s life…Angelica Page brings her whole self to the stage…The closeness Angelica Page has to the subject matter might end up being part of her problem. The play may satisfy a niche group, but it fails to connect Geraldine Page to a broader audience…We never forget that this play is a tribute."

June 8th, 2015
For a previous production

"It rightly concentrates on the mother/daughter relationship, but the structure of the play is diffuse and feels unformed and in need of tightening and a much stronger forward momentum. The performance was not helped by far too many rapidly spoken lines that disappeared upstage."
