Press for AJAX (part of Two Class Acts) at The Flea Theater (NYT Critics' Pick)

"I saw Olivia Jampol and Chris Tabet in Ajax, who were wonderfully electric and fun."- Theater is Easy by Rachel Abrams

"Olivia Jampol and Ben Lorenz were charm personified as Meg and Adam." - Lighting and Sound America by David Barbour

"Olivia Jampol was simply delightful. There was a great comfort in her Meg. She had a soft spot to her with just a hint of her opportunistic nature." - Theater in the Now by Michael Block

"The real class act in Two Class Acts is the acting. Olivia Jampol as Megan Tucker in Ajax transforms from prim to liberated with great charm and wit." - Let's Talk Off Broadway by Yvonne Korshak

"There's some fine energetic acting by Olivia Jampol and Chris Tabet. And, as directed by Stafford Arima, Ajax nicely straddles the ancient Greek and modern American world." - Curtain Up by Dierdre Donovan

"Olivia Jampol and Chris Tabet, under Stafford Arima’s direction, gave solid performances as Meg and Adam... Jampol’s sudden transformation in one brief blackout, after performing in Adam’s play, from prim school teacher to a vivacious dish, with eyeglasses gone and hair let down along with an appropriate costume change, was perhaps the highlight of the piece." - by Ron Cohen

"The two roles are being played by four Bats – I saw Jampol and Tabet in the roles and they were both terrific." - CT News by Joe Meyers

"In the performance under review, Olivia Jampol and Chris Tabet played the two characters... Jampol’s teacher is both amused and amusing as the authority figure who gives Adam just enough latitude without allowing him to cross a line...The casting for both plays could not be improved as the actors make their roles their own. " - by Victor Gluck

"Olivia Jampol and Chris Tabet exuded just the right feisty interplay to bring the play endearingly to life. Watching these two actors spiral towards each other over the course of the hour was a pure delight." - Interludes by Adrian Dimanlig

Press for Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom at The Flea Theater

"Joel Schumacher — who gave us the prototypical brat pack movie “St. Elmo’s Fire” (1985) — has a natural affinity for youthful performers... I especially enjoyed Olivia Jampol and Eric Folks as drolly anguished grown-ups, rendered with the occasional startlingly original over-the-top flourish."
- Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Press for Dream Ticket at the NY International Fringe Festival

Taking on these large personas allowed this company to brave politics through humor... Olivia Jampol’s Darla finger was brash and outlandish. If ever there was one ripe for a spinoff, it’s Jampol and Darla Finger.
— Michael Bradley Bock, Theater in The Now

Press for LOU at The Paradise Factory

Olivia Jampol, who plays both Paul Ree and Lou Salome’s eccentric occasionally present husband, also steals each scene, displaying each character’s sexual frustrations with Lou in a unique and humorous way. When Lou and Nietzsche hit it off, Jampol’s portrayal of an annoyed third-wheel is worth the price of admission.
— Anwar Ragep,
Olivia Jampol playing Friedrich Andreas, a linguistic scholar and Lou’s partner in a celibate marriage, makes the audience roar with laughter by just dropping a couple of words here and there in the very first scene we meet the character. Needless to say, every following appearance of Andreas is comedic. Jampol is equally successful as Paul Ree.
— Asya Danilova,
Perhaps unexpectedly, Lou is also very funny, thanks in no small part to excellent performances by the cast. Olivia Jampol in particular has some great comic moments: she is scene-stealingly hilarious as Lou’s husband, Andreas, and cuts a more subduedly humorous, occasionally swaggering figure as the sympathetically dissolute Paul Rée.
— Leah Richards & John Ziegler, CultureCatch
...the completely game cast investigates different aspects of male privilege, and how even the best of intentions are shadowed by this power imbalance. For example, Jampol plays both Ree, and Lou’s eventual (sexless) husband Friedrich Andreas with different shades of male privilege. Ree is strutting, lazy, and petulant, whereas Andreas is an eccentric odd-duck, but both consider their relationship with Lou simply something they deserve, and when denied, they both throw their own versions of temper tantrums.
— Michael Niederman, New York Theater Review
Occasionally, the mood lifts: [Lou’s] interactions with her husband of convenience - married for 43 years, the couple never consummated their relationship - Friedrich Andreas (a subtlety funny Olivia Jampol) adds much-needed levity.

DEVICES OF TORTURE at the New York International Fringe Festival

Ms. Jampol [Ryan] is a force to be reckoned with, particularly engaging when her relationship scenes start to get #real… your heart will break and your breath might even momentarily stop as Ryan’s emotions erupt like a volcano, intense honesty flying out with such ferocity, you might even feel pushed, post-show, to tell your loved ones just how much they mean to you — and what it is exactly that you need from them during troubling times.” - Zennie Trieu, MEDIUM

Jampol and Poett are particularly impressive during their scenes of dramatic conflict, but each cast member successfully tackles both the dramatic and comedic moments in the script.” - Adrienne Urbanski, Theatre is Easy, BEST BET
