"I felt as though I had been invited to watch a final semester project at one of New York’s fine acting schools...The production’s greatest asset is Kelly Monroe Johnston’s magnificent staging...The production is solid and will remind you of the beauty and simplicity of this glorious text."

"On the whole, the show looks interesting, without being especially remarkable...Everything about this ‘Henry V’ works. It all hangs together, the actors know what they’re doing, an aesthetic has been committed to, a world has been created, you can watch and experience Shakespeare’s play without impediment. And that’s it. This show doesn’t reinvent the story, it doesn’t challenge it and break new observational or theatrical ground, it just tells the story well."

"The production, directed by Kelly Monroe Johnston, is at once simplistic and chaotic. Out of a cacophony of sound, cleverly punctuated by a wonderful percussion set of hanging wine bottles and buckets, comes forth a clarity of text. It's interesting and entertaining...In this 400th year since the death of Shakespeare, it's a great idea to add Rogue & Peasant's production of 'Henry V' to join in on the commemoration."
