Heidi Berg

Awards

"Heidi Berg’s delightfully gruff crossgender turn as J. P. Morgan reminds us just how powerfully a single man’s arrogance can misguide a whole economy." John Townsend - TESLA

Audience Favorite Award, 2012 48 Hour Film Festival, "GIRLS IN LANE 4" - Bridesmaid

"Berg as the villainous Mrs. Cheveley brought the chill into the room with each entrance…" Janet Preus - AN IDEAL HUSBAND

"It's a fuller portrait with satisfying epic sweep, performed in St. Paul with brutal integrity by Heidi Berg." - John Townsend - MEDEA: A NOH CYCLE

"Berg, as the woman who mounts a one-woman campaign to investigate the aforementioned suspicious death, is the catalytic agent in the play. It's her performance -- at once sweet and tough -- she largely keeps things moving forward." - Dominic Papatola - BOOK OF DAYS

"...The middle segment features Jared Reise and Heidi Berg as vacuous students... They're entirely fascinating." Quinton Skinner - BASH

"Heidi Berg's empathetic Linda leaves memories of Diane Keaton behind." - Rob Hubbard - PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM
