"How lucky am I that I got to participate in your incredible life changing workshop... Thank you... for your rare generosity, open heart and powerful guidance. It was a true honor to share the space with you and allow myself to explore deeper parts of my inner world."
- Hanna-Lee Sakakibara (Los Angeles, NY)
"Jordan did an excellent job of helping me to improve my monologues. With regards to my intention, physical life and vocal variation, his initial assessment quickly uncovered what I had missed. He didn't see parts of my performance. Rather, he saw the big picture and tied together the loose ends, making it whole."
- Brandon Medina, actor (New York, NY)
"Jordan has an incredible mind, an incredible passion, an extreme intelligence and understanding of - not only the workings of a script - but an understanding of the way actors work and what it takes to bring out that human being and to encourage that without saying "do this and do that."
- Hannah Scott, actor (New York, NY)
"Rosin's successful synthesis of classical Greek and Japanese traditions enriches the myth at the piece's core, as do commanding, physically impressive performances from the Ume Group." - The Village Voice
"This visceral incarnation of Electra is not for purists or the faint-hearted. But adventurous theatergoers who like their Greek drama with a twist may enjoy Rosin's new take on the old revenge tale. " - CurtainUp
"What The Ume Group along with creator/director Jordan Rosin have produced is something very beautiful and disturbing." - nytheatre.com
“Butoh Electra was purely Fringe—an intriguing concept pushed to the edge of a possibility, if not quite over the top of it. Billed as a “workshop production,” one hopes the newly-formed Ume Group will continue developing this martial-arts/butoh-tinged amorality tale set in feudal Japan, but based on Greek mythology.” - Stage-Rush.com
