The Wall Street Journal
October 19th, 2023

“Mr. Page is a consummately skilled classical actor—one of the country’s finest...and the show, which whips by at 80 minutes, is virtually all highlights...Annotating his portraits in wickedness with anecdotes and historical context both erudite and accessible, Mr. Page brings us into discomfiting intimacy with the characters he evokes.”

The subtitle of Patrick Page’s absorbing and informative one-man show "All the Devils Are Here," “How Shakespeare Invented the Villain” is an actuate description of the content of his presentation. In a kind of lecture-performance, it is Page’s credible contention that Shakespeare took the Vice character (the villain from the Middle Ages’ Morality plays through Christopher Marlowe) and added psychological realism. Eventually in his last play, "The Tempest," Shakespeare was dealing with a character with a very worthy justification for revenge who finds compassion and empathy instead.

Front Row Center

“Mr. Page carries the mantel of Shakespeare with a devotion that is both logical and passionate. Within minutes of his entrance, we have caught the bug as well. We accept the invitation to board Page’s wagon train and head off for parts unknown. We are powerless to resist – and that is kind of the point of theatre, is it not?...ANYONE thinking about mounting Shakepeare should be required to see this show. ANYONE.”

“I know many people who won’t willingly attend a performance of a Shakespeare play, people whose only exposure was reading 'Romeo and Juliet' aloud in junior high school. These folks wouldn’t consider an evening of Shakespeare as entertainment, but in skipping Page’s wonderful performance, they would certainly be missing out.”

With his deep, resonant voice and buff body, Page is a mesmerizing performer; it’s easy to be carried away by his imposing stage presence. Director Simon Godwin expertly lets him strut his stuff as Page delivers a master class in villainy.

“In addition to being deeply entertaining and a triumph of craft, the show is genuinely informative: Page makes Shakespeare so approachable and alluring that both a novice and an expert could enjoy it and come away emotionally and intellectually gratified. ‘All the Devils Are Here’ is a must-see theatrical experience.”

The New York Times

“Rest assured, though, that most of ‘All the Devils’ is much less fraught, and a lot of it is fun...Page is a friendlier guide, charmingly unintimidating and even a little dishy about Shakespeare, tracing the playwright’s game-changing development as a writer of psychologically complex evildoers.”

“It’s required watching for anyone interested in Shakespeare, psychology, worldbuilding, and performance. Shakespeare may have invented the villain, but Page sure has perfected it.”
