ACTING

Though she likes to think she can do anything, Susannah is most likely to be cast as the momgenue (mom-ingenue) in your musical, the straight-woman in your comedy webseries, or the countess who falls in love and makes a fool of herself in your classical play. Check out her full resume here.

MUSICALS

A CHRISTMAS STORY: THE MUSICAL National Tour

"But it was Susannah Jones, capturing the quiet strength and vulnerability of the Mother, who gave the musical, based on Shepherd's story, its beating heart."-The Oklahoman

"Susannah Jones persuades as the mother. And she's a first-rate vocalist with a real gift for phrasing; she makes "Just Like That," a beguiling ballad about the fleeting nature of childhood, the musical highlight of the show. Jones and Swan connect with particular flair in a short, lovely scene where the parents try to apologize to each other in fragmented sentences that, taken together, add up to "I'm sorry." Such moments help give "A Christmas Story" its welcome charm."-Baltimore Sun

"Susannah Jones is sweet and smart as Ralphie's mom"-San Francisco Chronicle. ​

"Ralphie's parents are played by Christopher Swan and Susannah Jones, who delivers an exceedingly poignant and believable performance."-Broadway World Memphis

"It is most successful in the fantasy production number of "Ralphie to the Rescue!" and in the more poignant quiet numbers for Ralphie's mother, played by Susannah Jones. Ms. Jones often centers the evening with calm motherly love and lovely singing voice."-Broadway World Buffalo

"With a voice as sweetly comforting as the character she plays, Susannah Jones gives a charming portrayal of Ralphie’s mother … even when resolutely pitching in her two cents to the overall anti-gun consensus that 'You’ll shoot your eye out kid!'"--The Flash List Dallas

"Jones is brilliant in this role, arguably the best player in the cast. She gives the frazzled mother from the movie a more polished veneer while simultaneously imbuing the role with a sense of deep love for the family. Her solos “What a Mother Does” and “Just Like That” are moving and nuanced, and her voice shines. Though the action is almost identical to the film, including some of the lines, Jones hits a different, more sophisticated level of comedy than the movie. The character becomes vibrant and is elevated nearly to a leading role by Jones’ performance."--The Column, Dallas


"The only exceptions are the quiet, contemplative tunes sung by Mother (Susannah Jones), the miracle woman who keeps the household running while lifting everyone’s spirits. “What a Mother Does” and “Just Like That” offer glimpses at the woman beyond the apron, and Jones sounds heavenly."--D Magazine

COMPANY at Bucks County Playhouse

"Peter and Susan are cast as an interracial couple. This is not dictated in the script, but works well and makes the show contemporary...This couple was played expertly by Max Kumanagai (seen previously in Ain’t Misbehavin’ last year at BCP) and Susannah Jones."-New Hope Free Press

" The 13 actors with whom he shares the stage all give sharply and imaginatively characterized performances."-Wall Street Journal


"This production succeeds in many ways, with a strong cast that can rattle the rafters and charm each row."- Philadelphia Inquirer


"Tara Rubin Casting gets an “A”: the actors they found for these roles are more than just actors, they are multidimensional performers."- Phindie

PLAYS

THE RIVALRY at Stageworks Hudson

"Adele, winsomely portrayed by Susannah Jones. . . offers the humanity to Douglas that Lincoln bears on his own.”

- Albany Times Union

“Jones is straightforward in both her narratives and her interactive scenes. Adele, as she sees her, is a woman who pulls no punches and shoots from the hip if necessary…In two specific scenes with the future President, Jones plays her role perfectly, coy and feminine and yet strong and in charge of herself and of the meeting itself…There are deep challenges in this role and Jones is definitely up to them.”

-The Edge NYC

PHANTOMWISE at The NYC Fringe

“Susannah Jones gives a delectably animated performance in the role of Alice’s younger sister”
- Backstage Magazine
