"Producing artistic director Sally Boyett and her team show us Shakespeare
at its most involving and theater at its finest:
imaginatively staged, crisply directed and solidly acted."
Jim Reiter for The Bay Weekly
"Founding artistic director Sally Boyett realizes all aspects of Annapolis Shakespeare's mission in her direction, revealing the intensity of Macbeth's consuming ambition while lending accessibility to Shakespeare's masterwork. Boyett weaves the witches' prophecies with guilt and paranoia in illuminating fundamental truths of human experience…The stark simplicity of the Studio 111 venue proves ideal, its intimacy lending great impact while drawing audiences into the action…"
Mary Johnson for The Baltimore Sun
"Bloody good – and filled with bloodied scenes, Macbeth is a must-see show
in the ongoing evolution of Annapolis Shakespeare Company!"
Wendi Winters for DC Metro Theatre Arts
