One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (2016)

Nurse Ratched

Check out this interview with Pittsburgh's cheeky Burgh Vivant on barebones productions' 2016 offering, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. -->

Pittsburgh City Paper "Kim Parker Green’s icy Nurse Ratched is portended by the acrid smoke filling the theater, preshow. Green lets Ratched’s diabolic soul emerge through her crisp, uniformed persona like the horns growing slowly under her hair as the play evolves."

Elemeno Pea (2015)

Michaela 

Playwright Molly Smith Metzler says, "After a long stretch of hands off "Elemeno Pea," the New Yorker returned to it with a fresh eye and has been in Pittsburgh with tweaks and changes for the cast, including someone who makes her feel right at home. Michaela is being played by Pittsburgh-based actress Kimberly Parker Green, who played Simone in the first production of the play. "She's an extraordinary actress, so I feel so lucky, but also I think it's interesting that we've both kind of grown up through the play," Ms. Metzler said. "When I first wrote it, I came at it with a Simone perspective, and Kimberly, my friend, played Simone. But now I come at it more mature, with a more Michaela perspective. And so does Kimberly. I think it's interesting that as writer and actress, we've both kind of grown up through the roles."

Pittsburgh Owl Scribe (City) "One of the highlights of the production is the skill with Green transitions from an unlikeable plastic princess to a woman deserving of sympathy."

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (City)

Talkin' Broadway (City) - "As the needy Michaela, Kimberly Parker Green gives a perfect performance; she indicates verbally and physically the many shades of Michaela, ultimately the most complex character of the show. "
