Sally Kemp, actress.


Advise and Consent, directed by Franklin Schaffner

The Pearl Theatre: Nathan the Wise, She Stoops to Conquer
"...the insanely funny Sally Kemp...perfect body...a combination of arrogance and insecurity...
...commands the stage with her distinct and distinctive voice..."

The Mint Theatre: The Voysey Inheritance, A Farewell to the Theatre
"...superb and emotional...Kemp and Morfogen handle Granville-Barker's dense, exalted language with
meticulous care, avoiding stereotyped overacting. Miss Kemp delivers a particularly mature performance
that masterfully projects her character's tragic ambivalence. She gives a spectacularly intelligent,
subtly calibrated and frequently moving account of herself as Dorothy...

Olney Theatre Center: Mornings at Seven (Ida)
"...a bundle of nerves, afraid of being herself...a loving homemaker in a loveless marriage..."

The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis: The Royal Family (Fanny)
"...Sally Kemp is luminous...richly nuanced, part grande dame, part concerned mother...a simple, subtle performance..."

GeVa: The Importance of Being Earnest (Lady Bracknell)
"...A wonderful Gorgon...commanding...suggests the harridan is a former great beauty..."
