BELLONA, Destroyer of Cities by Jay Scheib

“…Mikéah Ernest Jennings’s navigation of racial stereotypes is slyly sophisticated…”

– Claudia La Rocco, New York Times, April 7, 2010

“Bellona, Destroyer of Cities, is performed by the kind of superhero-like actors who appear to be preternaturally beautiful, physical and emotional acrobats.  It’s a sexy, dangerous and bewildering piece…”

Jason Rabin, BLAST Magazine, May 15, 2011

THE SHIPMENT by Young Jean Lee

“…the outstandingly funny, high-haired Mikeah Ernest Jennings”

– Hilton Als, The New Yorker 2009

“…I realized that Jennings is a combination of bright spot, linchpin and savior.  As he did in Young Jean Lee’s The Shipment (in which he sported a haircut that combined the positive qualities of a mane and a geyser), Jennings manages to turn his performance up to an impressive amplitude without losing control.”

– Helen Shaw, Time Out New York, March 24, 2009

SOS by Caden Manson/Big Art Group

“In SOS, Jemma Nelson’s hypercaffeinated text has to be delivered at neck-breaking speeds, yet Jennings never loses a single word.  He also infuses an otherwise chilly show with warmth… he seems like someone you’d die to know.”

– Helen Shaw, Time Out New York, March 24, 2009

GUN PLAY by Brian Rogers/The Chocolate Factory

“…performers assume the personae of people, like John Carmack, the man behind the seminal and violent Doom (played with a wonderful wide-eyed awe by Mikeah Ernest Jennings)”

– Andy Propst, BACKSTAGE, Jan 18, 2006
