“But the actual leading role is the patron . . . acted sharply and slickly by Bien de Moor. With a doll-like wig and extravagant costume, she is a mix of Marijke Helwegen and Mathilde Willink who claims her place amidst the imposing youth.” – Trouw about Dorian
“Actress Bien de Moor is the guide in this impossible search for love, and as an expired violet ‘Venus in furs,’ she comments upon all of the vain efforts” – NRC about LOVE ♥
“At times she stomps around, breakable but strong, in a dusty pink evening dress and a plumed, feathered hat in the same shade.” – De Volkskrant about LOVE ♥
