The New York Times

Bernie (Stephanie Gould), alternately docile and demanding, rude and sweet, stubborn and accommodating, sets the pace of the Vincolos’ existence…The cast eschews actorly fireworks, starting with Ms. Gould, who herself has a mild form of cerebral palsy and does not shy from Bernie’s difficult side.

“Access. Access. Access.”
That one word, in a nutshell, is what every auditioning performer longs for: the chance to be seen, at their best, in
the hope of landing a role and providing for themselves. In this instance, it was uttered by Stephanie Gould, a performer with a mild form of cerebral palsy, who discussed her own path in navigating the casting process.

Stephanie Gould plays Bernie as written, declining to soft-pedal her most grating characteristics while effectively communicating her painful vulnerability. It’s easy to see why she both inspires so much affection and frustration; she demands everything from her family while offering them only the opportunity to keep doing more. It’s a very brave performance.

The show, written & performed by Gould, is auto-biographical, chronicling her journey of growing up with a mild form of cerebral palsy, having to learn to walk again, and becoming an actor. She hopes to bring awareness to audiences of differently-abled actors, all while using her unique sense of humor.

Manhattan With a Twist

Stephanie Gould, who has cerebral palsy, inhabits Bernie as a woman who adores her brother unconditionally, shrugs off her mother’s nagging, and keeps an icier front with a father who often leaves her out of the conversation…Bernie and Mikey’s Trip to the Moon reminds us of the importance of letting actors with disabilities play disabled characters. Having Stephanie Gould play Bernie and Benjamin Rosloff (an actor on the autism spectrum) play Jeff, Bernie’s persistent suitor, leaves no room for caricature or stereotypes. The play, from the writing to the direction to the performances, treats people with disabilities respectfully without preaching from a pulpit.

Women Around Town

As Bernie, Stephanie Gould’s facial expression, speech patterns, and movement couldn’t be more real. When she hugs, it’s with her whole person. Lack of mindful behavior and confusion feels true, cloudy consciousness as if overwhelming in real time.
