Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent

See it if you like a very intelligent show using excerpts from 4 Shakespeare's plays that include Queen Margaret, a fascinating woman.

Don't see it if you don't like Shakespeare or stories about very strong minded women. Women play all the roles Read more

"As a result of Bercovici's and Dan Morbyrne's tight script (woven from Shakespeare but 'funneled and augmented') and Myka Plunkett's beautiful acting, Margaret of Anjou becomes decidedly whole and decidedly human...And the choice to cast an all-female ensemble, in a reversal of the Shakespearean norm, is a perfect touch. Music, lighting, dance, and inventive staging combine with a wise script, a unique aesthetic, and powerful acting to create the ultimate 'total work of art.'"
