About me:

Recent reviews:"The exotic Dorothy is the most fully rounded character... made poignant by Cutko's performance" -The Times "a beautiful, tragic cameo as the Carousel owner, Mrs. Mullen." -The Telegraph; "Far more truthful is the hunger in the eyes and voice of Valerie Cutko's ageing, lonely carousel owner."
