WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT AMANDA
'The Situation' as part of Adelaide Fringe 2014:
'Amanda connects with the audience through her candid narrations and realistic enactments...it is a humorous and unnervingly realistic portrayal of how people find love using social media...Anyone who uses social media will enjoy this show and its observations on contemporary human interaction. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED' - Fringe Review UK
'Amanda Jane Porter has created a charming show, featuring a character that is both likable and relatable...a well-constructed, light-hearted, fun show which would make a great girls night out but will also appeal to a wider audience.' - Kryztoff
“I have worked with Amanda [and] have found her to be the consummate professional. She is able...to provide valuable insights in to the characters she is playing”
– Tim Lea, Writer/Producer.
“I know what an asset Amanda is to any production” – Uma Kali Shakti, Writer/Director.

The acting and singing abilities of the cast are above and beyond...and it gives the production an air of real professionalism. Favourite numbers included... the song “Everyone wants to f**k everyone (as sung by Amanda)”. – WhatsonComedy.com
“The show's vocal delights include ...a soaring ballad called Everyone Wants To F--- Everyone (as sung by Amanda). Swift and silly late-night fun.” – Cameron Woodhead, The Melbourne Age.
