Praise for The Life and Death of Queen Margaret:
"I was blown away by the beauty of your work! I'm so so very glad I was able to get there and bear witness to this artistry! You are a beautiful director, and your visions are both large and intimate, dangerous and healing all at once. Congratulations to you and to your amazing cast for work so well and so tenderly done!"
-- Deb Margolin, Performer, Playwright, and Professor of Theatre at Yale University
"Weaving together those strands and fragments into a moving compelling dramatic narrative was a great feat, directed with such poetry and grace."
-- Harley Erdman, Professor of Theatre at University of Massachusetts
"Congratulations on a terrific, impressive, engrossing, beautiful production of The Life & Death of Queen Margaret. It was a captivating evening of theater: the creativity, imagination, thoughtfulness, fine crafting and coordinating of all the elements were masterfully put together, with you at the helm. I enjoyed it so very much, as did everyone else who was there in the audience on Friday night. Queen Margaret is a wonderful example of what talent, intention, effort, skill and rehearsal can produce; theatre is food for the soul, and we were nourished by your company's show."
--Lisa N. Abend, Performer
"I was bowled over by your production of The Life & Death of Queen Margaret. Just incredible. How powerful the themes of parenting and parental grief were for me. And I believe that this was because of the re-interpretation of Shakespeare’s work and of history by casting incredible women in all of the roles. I can never get out of my mind the Duke of York’s flaming invective against Margaret for killing Rutland, nor Margaret’s at Richard & Edward for killing her son, nor Margaret’s fury at her husband for refusing to support Edward’s interests, nor King Henry VI’s sorrow at the loss of (her) son. So filled with sound and fury and signifying everything that matters."
