'The effect was electric, if I hadn't seen this happen, I would never have believed it possible. Jenny's secret is to challenge actors and equip them with powerful and simple tools and techniques they can absorb, remember and apply... She combines professionalism with a delicious athleticism and a kind encouraging heart. I am so much looking forward to working with Jenny again.'
