"...Lind and Warner manage to make the alliance work, because they’re both so darn appealing. Lind, a sterling player in last year’s “Really Really" at Signature Theatre, gives Joanna a persuasive backbone… it’s a blessing to have heroic love birds you can root for."
"As the innocent and sweet Joanna, Bethany Anne Lind is spot-on… When push comes to shove, Lind makes Joanna stronger than she initially appears and thanks to incredible chemistry between Warner and Lind, it's a love everyone will be rooting for."
"Bethany Anne Lind as Joanna Drayton is an actress to keep your eye on. The original screenplay fashioned her as innocent and simplistic, but Kreidler’s script gives Lind room to develop a more complex and fascinating character. Her final monologue about the value of ten days is genuine, raw, and unsettling – three words that describe Lind’s performance overall."
"...Bethany Anne Lind, an actress with so much positive energy that she could make any curmudgeon giggle. Ms. Lind’s Joanna lies at the heart of this adaptation, which focuses more than anything on the power of youthful idealism to transform the world, and Ms. Lind is up to the task. No matter how outrageously naïve each of her acts of transgression might be, they shift the center of gravity toward her perspective."
"It’s a daunting amount of information, and director Christopher Ashley has his fine actors deliver it at a breakneck pace. Their rapid-fire, overlapping patter achieves a symphonic momentum that is impressive and a pleasure to experience..."
"Playhouse artistic director Christopher Ashley’s staging is also beautifully designed, paced with a syncopated savvy... and full of crackerjack acting."
"As the hapless couple fighting for justice and the American ideals of life liberty and happiness, Lind and Kerr are excellent."
"The large cast creates real characters who keep the hurried pace in full speed to the play’s climax."
"...Kreidler and Leon's top-notch cast deliver a sterling production — one that makes a case for reappraising the somewhat creaky living-room drama the same way Leon's Broadway revival of Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun" did."
"...the wonderful Bethany Anne Lind..."
"Speaking of fine performances, there’s no shortage of them in 'Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner': the luminous Tess Malis Kincaid, Bethany Anne Lind, Tom Key, and Tory Kittles are perhaps first among equals."
"Bethany Anne Lind, in a performance of marvelous, if intentionally enigmatic, control."
“While the entire cast works together as smoothly as interlocking gears, Lind is riveting in the pivotal role..."
"Lind excels as Leigh, fragile in appearance but in fact hard as nails."
“Fine performances radiate from the ensemble cast, with Lind in the lead crafting a nuanced portrait of the sociopathic coed Leigh."
“...a brilliant young cast, particularly Lind and Odmark, whom it’s hard not to be drawn to."
“This is a true ensemble piece and is some of the best ensemble acting you will see anywhere. The tension between Bethany Anne Lind and Jake Odmark will keep you guessing how it all turns out."
“Bethany Anne Lind, in a performance that is remarkable for its surprises"
"Lind, who has proven herself again and again as a young actress of remarkable versatility, goes off the charts in her approximation of the emotionally paralyzed Laura, who we know was modeled on Williams’ own sister. Swept away in the whimsy of her unicorn ballet and later stricken with asthmatic panic at the thought of answering the knock of her caller, Lind’s account of Laura’s agony is devastating."
As eldest daughter Barbara's young pot-head daughter, Jean, Bethany Anne Lind nails the ennui of a woman forced to grow up too soon -- and likely to remain there."
"Bethany Anne Lind must get tired of playing so many kid roles -- the actress is probably pushing, what, all of 25? -- but it’s hard to feel too sorry for her when she’s so darn good at it. Among her most recent highlights: a precocious kindergartner (in Synchronicity’s “Junie B. Jones"), an innocent adolescent (Horizon’s “Night Blooms") and a rebellious teenager (Aurora’s “The Storytelling Ability of a Boy").
"Two seasons ago, Lind shone in the Alliance’s “26 Miles,"... Now, curiously enough, in the Alliance’s world premiere of David Mitchell Robinson’s “Carapace," its 2010 Kendeda winner, Lind co-stars as a high school student who reluctantly reunites with her estranged father
"For her part, however, wonderful actress that she is, Lind isn’t just going through the same old motions. To begin with, “Carapace" spans several years, and much of it is told in flashback, which gives her a greater range to play as the character of Margo matures.
"Moreover, Margo suffers from a debilitating stutter that might have seemed maudlin or self-indulgent in less sensitive hands... Lind brings a nuance to the role that’s heartbreaking."
"Ms. Lind is a wonder, more than fulfilling the promise she showed in Horizon Theatre’s “Night Blooms," among other plays."
"Or to watch Bethany Anne Lind, so gifted at playing the goody-goodies ("Our Town" "Steel Magnolias") take such a gutsy stab at a grungy hellion."
"Bethany Anne Lind, superb."
"the superb Bethany Anne Lind"
"As the innocent, ill-fated girl next door for whom he falls, the lovely Lind registers as the undisputed stand out among the ensemble."
"Bethany Anne Lind, as Emily, is simply adorable and completely believable as a teenager."
"I'd pay a good deal more than that to see the look on Dora's face when she decides to drop the bullshit and make love to Peck. Even she can't tell if she's doing it out of mercy, desire, or loneliness, and you can read all three in Lind's lovely face."
"Bethany Anne Lind (Dora)... underneath her simmering anger, she let us see the girl who is so desperate to be loved."
"Bethany Anne Lind burns brightly as Dora."
"It takes a special kind of actress to pull off a character like Junie B. Jones... That’s why it’s such a treat to watch Bethany Anne Lind return as Junie B.
"Yes, Lind knows all the ticks of a 5-year-old’s trade: the swinging pelvis, the tugging at everything, the roller-coaster of emotions and expressions, and the slow blossoming of awareness of the world around her. But Lind has done something more...
"Lind delighted... much of the reason to attend “Junie B." is to watch a talent like Bethany Anne Lind mature as an actress —- by revisiting her youth."
"While all the acting is good, the highlight of the show is watching Olivia, portrayed by Bethany Anne Lind."
"the ditzy shiksa played to vapid perfection by Bethany Anne Lind as a sexy good-time girl who's, like, wow, blown away by how chilled-out everybody isn't."
