Virginia Proud:

Ueli Riegg:

"An actress, being an actress and two characters draw you in into a biographic and captivating story about two women in two different relationships with Picasso. The actress mesmerizes her audience with words. I have never been so happy to get seduced before."

Ed Barzilaij:

“Witnessed Carlijn van Ramshort's latest creation Mrs. Picasso. Six performances only in Shanghai, the kick off of a world tour for sure. Carlijn proved again the power of storytelling. An impressive intensive monologue became an intimate dialogue with a stock-still audience. Narrative is the most powerful way to break down resistance and reach the heart. Thanks Carlijn, what a great acting.”


Anthony Ruys:

"Carlijn plays an impressive role that requires the full attention of herself and her audience. She is impressive, refined and mysterious. She is extremely attractive in her direct approach towards the audience, very exciting."

"The captivating story about Picasso's wives keeps you breathless from the very beginning. Carlijn van Ramshorst takes you into the minds of these remarkable women and they just won't let you go. Carlijn got to me from the moment she stepped on stage and the story kept on wandering in my head for days after."
