Jill Dalton

Award-Winning Actor/Writer

“Truly superb . . . the script (Lizzie Borden Live! by Jill Dalton) is fascinating. Jill Dalton is an astonishingly talented actress - she changes her mood and characters in a split second. The play should get a Pulitzer.”

Charles Alexander, writer, Time Magazine
