SPRING 2019

The Reviews Are In:

“‘Junk’ is rich with stellar acting…just to make clear that this large cast forms an across-the-board smooth operation, allow me to also name Nancy Sun, in a turn as an opportunistic Wall Street journalist…” - WASHINGTON POST

“The show's large cast can very easily make or break this production. And yet, every member of Arena's cast rises to the task…particularly Nancy Sun's Judy Chen, (who also serves as the show's quasi-narrator) is quite fun to watch. Sun's portrayal of Chen's journey from skeptical bystander to active participant in the financial antics is subtle and skillfully pulls the audience along for her slide” - BROADWAY WORLD

“A briskly tenacious Nancy Sun” - DC METRO ARTS

Also catch Nancy Sun’s interviews in The Washington Post, Broadway World, and on WUSA9’s Great Day Washington!
