Her life was all doom, she said, until “HE” came. Her love. She
blindfolded me and placed a grape in my hand – crushing it closed in my
palm. Then placing my fingers in a dish of sugar, she made me taste the
sweetness. All the while her story got stranger, hinting of the devil.
Last, she put a flute of champagne in my hand and asked if I can taste
his joy, the bubbles… My memory of the story gets fuzzy here and she
guided me back out. Was she in league with the devil? After all,
champagne is “the devil’s wine” (le vin du diable)…

Romeo and Juliet
The Star Ledger/nj.com - "Romeo and Juliet" a triumph
In that marvelous movie, "Shakespeare in Love," the young Bard wonders if he should rename his new play, "Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter." Of course he doesn't, opting for "Romeo and Juliet." However, had the young playwright seen his work now at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, he might well have retitled it "Romeo, Juliet, and Her Nurse." For while the two lovers make firm impressions, Jodie Lynne McClintock reminds Madison audiences what a terrific role the Nurse is. McClintock reinforces that the Nurse fervently loves Juliet as if the girl were her own daughter. When Juliet is in agony, McClintock empathizes to the depth of her soul. When Juliet rejoices, McClintock acts as if a winning lottery ticket is hers. Shakespeare gave the Nurse all the low comedy in this play, and McClintock understands all of it. When she must explain a situation, she amusingly goes round and round the subject before landing on the point she could have made in a third as many sentences. McClintock is wonderfully clueless, no matter how many stern faces she makes, prattling away, unapologetically doing it her way.

- Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey stages a legendary romance.
And, in a performance to savor, Jodie Lynne McClintock as Juliet’s nurse-since-birth makes her debut with the company a stirring one.
Daily Record - "Romeo and Juliet" emphasizes contemporary associations
Kennedy's direction distinguishes the production by giving it a uniquely timeless quality. So, too, does Jodie Lynne McClintock, who nearly steals the show as Juliet's loving nurse, celebrating every triumph and suffering every tragedy with broadly eccentric and enormously appealing verve. Short and stout, she never gets in the way of the story, but is about as hard to miss as a bowling ball in a game of marbles.
The New York Times - Star-Cross’d, and That’s Not the Only Complication
This is a robust, intense, beautifully acted version of the story…Shakespeare often treated servants as comic relief, but in this production, Juliet’s Nurse (Jodie Lynne McClintock), though inarguably funny, has a stronger sense of self than many of the nobles. At one point, exhausted, she stretches out on her young mistress’s brocade chaise longue, and Juliet fans her.

The Eugene O'Neill Newsletter
"Jodie Lynne McClintock does very well as Cathleen, providing an appropriately respectful sounding board for Mary in Act Three, while also conveying an uneasy suspicion about Mary's behavior. Her drunkenness is believable and humorous, enjoyed with a lightness that is in obvious contrast with the increasingly somber intoxication of the Tyrones."

The Mighty Macs - Feature Film
With involving cute nuns and their lovable quirks (Jodie Lynne McClintock as Sister Thomas), performances across the board are earnest and engaging.
As that old chestnut, the 'cute' nuns, one who is supposedly the height of cheeky adorableness for wearing black Chucky Taylors or riding a stationary bike, Phyllis Somerville (Showtime's 'The Big C') and Jodie Lynne McClintock provide the comic relief.
The Tolucan Times
The acting and story are so good it brought tears to my eyes as these women fight the odds... the performances of the entire cast shine.
A ragtag women's basketball team—cheered on by nuns in high-top sneakers— sets its sights on a national championship. Can we get a GO TEAM! The Mighty Macs comes off as well-made, well-acted and altogether cheerable.
New York Times
Sometimes a film is impossible to resist…you have to love seeing nuns shouting basketball strategy from courtside.
The Daughter In-Law - Mint Theatre Company
The New York Times
Ms. McClintock does a thoughtful and engaging turn as Mrs. Purdy, wisely understating the eccentricity and selfishness of a character who could easily have become overly comic, without dispensing with idiosyncrasy.
American Theater Web
One can tell that the company has thoroughly investigated the text and sought to find the inner truths for these characters. When, for instance, Jodie Lynne McClintock, as Mrs. Purdy enters, one sees that there is something on her mind from the weak smiles that she gives to Joe.
Funny, Frantic, Fun "Red Herring" at Shadowland Theatre
Part of the joy in watching Shadowland Theatre’s latest production, “Red Herring,” lies in seeing the almost magical transformation of five of the actors who play multiple parts….praise goes to the wonderful Jodie Lynne McClintock as: Mrs. Kravitz/Mrs. McCarthy/Mrs. Van Nostrand. Easily slipping into different accents and personas, McClintock delights as she bustles about the stage, frantically trying to keep the pieces of this farcical chess match moving in the right directions… In one scene, Mrs. Kravitz (McClintock) is trying to hide Andrei’s Russian identity and tells Frank that Andrei is mute. What follows is fall-off-your-chair funny, as Andrei invents his own sign language and Mrs. Kravitz translates. It’s like watching a 1950’s Japanese monster movie… it is truly a joy to watch.

Finnegan's Wake - Pittsburgh Laboratory Theatre
review by Donald Miller
The second act belongs almost entirely to Jodie Lynne McClintock soliloquizing as Anna Livia Plurabelle, the later counterpart of "Ulysses"' Molly Bloom. Here is the Irish girlchild grown to sensuous womanhood, savoring life's pleasures and more than a few of its disappointments.
Ms. McClintock is a remarkable actress of the Sada Thompson type: hefty and not beautiful, she is a wonderfully engaging and authentic Irish earth mother. Her moods are kaleidoscopic, kinetic, incessant.
Her brogue always seems right, indicative that her station in life is not all that she would wish. And yet her love for her husband, Humphrey Chipen Earwicker... is not only sincere but constant.
Helping to bring Tony's words to life is an amazing cast. Another central character was "Lorraine," played by Jodie Lynne McClintock ("United 93," "30 Rock"). With a beautiful singing voice and even greater acting skills, Jodie added much heart and humor to this show.
Jodie Lynne McClintock gives Lorraine a refreshing bite
Laughs are also present in many of the scenes involving Betty and her best friend, Lorraine (an understated and amiable Jodie Lynne McClintock), an Avon-selling housewife, whose presence in the play -- and carefully concealed home life -- becomes crucial to several reversals late in this contemporary Southern Gothic tale.
Rising above it all is Jodie Lynne McClintock, as Betty's close friend, church soloist Lorraine, giving an understated performance of realistic humor and dignity.
NY Daily News
Jodie Lynne McClintock has interesting moments as Betty's plus-size pal who carries a tune and pepper spray... played with great panache by Jodie Lynne McClintock.
