Acting and Teaching Experience
“Romantsova is an actor we don’t see often enough on stage. I am always astonished by her abilities. In The Bench she is sexy, fragile, shrewd, manipulative and tender, to name just the most obvious moods. The toilet roll in the handbag is a touch of genius…. Romantsova hits the spot”
Colin Rose, Sun Herald, SMH
“Romantsova is deft, vibrant and sheer delight…to watch”,
Pamela Payne Sun Herald.
