As You Like It with Black Swan State Theatre Company, 17 May to 1 June 2014
“So I was a little wary of Rosalind (Jovana Miletic) and Celia (the sweet, spirited Grace Smibert) as BFF schoolgirls. They are bright young things, to be sure but the journey they must make from their giggles and shy glances at the court to Rosalind's transcendent wisdom and grace in the forest is formidable.
I needn't have worried. This Rosalind may be younger, and more coltish, than I imagine her to be, but Miletic is gorgeous, unfailingly authentic and self-possessed throughout. (I don't want to be a jinx, but there is something of Cate Blanchett about her.)
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN
“The play is packed with minor, undeveloped characters (from the pointless neg Jaques to the simpleton William), which only makes Jovana Miletic’s performance as the delightful, cross-dressing Rosalind more enjoyable. Lively, charming and sweet, Miletic is the star of the show. Embodying her character completely, the show drags when she is not on stage to drive the action”
Samuel J. Cox,
“As You Like It stands or falls on the strengths of its Rosalind, and a willowy Jovana Miletic utterly convinces with her take on “how fathom deep I am in love”.
“Duke Senior’s schoolgirl daughter, Rosalind (Jovana Miletic – superb)”

INDEPENDENT THEATRE ASSOCIATION
“Rosalind is the only female main character in the Shakespearean canon, and she has more lines than any other woman in his entire oeuvre…Miletic did more than justice to the role. She is a fine addition to the company, and I hope she will remain with them for a while”
Carol Flavell Neist
PERFORMING ARTS HUB
“There are a number of outstanding performances…the invigorating ease with the language of Jovana Miletic (Rosalind) and Grace Smibert (Celia) is a delight to watch”
